Mozilla Rides The Google Wave With Raindrop - Software - IT Channel News by CRN

Totally different animals, imho; Raindrop looks like a communication-oriented multi-channel aggregator client, while Wave is ultimately a collaborative hypertext journaling system (that, in its default user experience, happens to look like a hybrid email/IM client)

The Mozilla Labs blog posted details of a new project described as, "an exploration in messaging innovations," which sounds an awful lot like Google (NSDQ:GOOG) Wave.

Like Google Wave, the project, called Raindrop, is an effort to centralize the disparate sources and ways in which most of us receive digital information. Raindrop is an interface for information users receive from e-mail, notifications, conversations and from social networking sites like Twitter, Flickr and YouTube.
