RockMelt Thinks You're Ready for a Modern Mobile Browser | Wired Business | Wired.com

From a Steven Levy RockMelt profile
"Now, he says, the web is mobile. It’s “about images, social and streams.” And so, says the original browser boy, it’s time for a new take. Thus, Andreessen is a major funder — and cheerleader — of RockMelt, a company releasing an eponymous app today that it calls the first true mobile browser.
[...]
Still, whether it’s with RockMelt or an eventual rethinking of Explorer, Chrome, Safari and the rest, this much is clear: We’re going to get browsers that reflect the way we use tablets and phones.
As Andreessen says, “Computing is going to vanish into panes of glass. In the future you’re going to just assume that every pane of glass is a touch computer and it’s connected to broadband. If it’s not active, you’ll assume it’s broken.” And he’s betting that when we reach this world of panes, we’ll be accessing the web via RockMelt."
