Yahoo acquires Rockmelt browser

Yahoo keeps acquiring new companies, and their products and services. Their latest target is the Rockmelt browser which — according to the official announcement — share’s Yahoo’s DNA, helping people “discover the best content from around the web.”

Rockmelt’s technology combines social, personalization and discovery to help users not only find what they’re looking for, but also stumble across some cool stuff along the way.

Yahoo says that it “can’t wait to integrate the Rockmelt technology” into its platform as it works to deliver the best experiences to its users in “new and exciting ways.”

The question on everyone’s mind is – can Yahoo’s browser compete with Google’s Chrome? Rockmelt is great browser and we’re interested to see what Yahoo will do with it…

    I just hope they don’t ruin Rockmelt.

    Yeah, let’s hope they don’t ruin it! I guess this now leaves the torch browser as my favorite chrome based browser…lets hope Yahoo doesn’t buy them too!
