This is like a cross platform Swiss Army knife of everything in your digital life and they are calling it a social network browser. It’s broken down into three areas – Active, Share and Know. Active is the integration of things like Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, Twitter, YouTube and RSS so you can access all of them from one place. Share centers around the ability to drag and drop photos and video to you friends and sites. Know will alert you to new emails, notifications, posts from your friends or your favorite sites update.
Right now there is only one extension called Me.dium which is an interesting take of social web browsing and and a real time map of the Internet where you can see what your friends and other people in the system are doing.
All of this can be overwhelming to people who do not consume this information but I am always bouncing from site to site, consuming content, looking for new content, and spending a lot of time trying to take it all in. So for me having all of this come to me in one place very appealing.
The browser is just at a 1.0 stage so it still very early in it’s life cycle but even at this early stage you can see the huge potential of what this could become.
