  • The only problem with Rockmelt is it is based on that awful Chrome. Chrome is awful because the setting that allows you to allow/block individual cookies has never worked. Without that there is no way to block adware tracking cookies. It is very easy in Firefox and a little less easy in Internet Exploder.
