Yahoo! and Rockmelt have big things planned for the ways they deliver media content
Yahoo! has announced that they are purchasing Rockmelt, makers of a once popular desktop browser and current Android and iOS applications. We had a look at the Rockmelt app for Android upon it's release, and found it an interesting and well-made way to find the great content the web has to offer in a highly-tuned mobile package.
Yahoo! and Rockmelt share a common goal to help people discover the best content from around the web. We plan to integrate the Rockmelt technology into Yahoo!’s experiences, and the Rockmelt team will help us to reimagine how we deliver our media content in new and exciting ways.
The excellent job Rockmelt did with the mobile app for Android wasn't enough to make up for the sting of dropping the desktop offering for some folks, so we hope that today's news means great things for all involved -- especially the users. We'll know more as things progress.
