Browsers are just popping up from everywhere these days. And today we see Blackbird a new browser built on top of Mozilla technology, which would help the African Americans to discover relevant content on the web and to interact with other African American communities online by sharing stories, news, comments and videos via the browser.
Don’t you feel that it sound something close to Flock the social browser?
The browser is pre-configured to get relevant news related to the African American community via Google and links African American community favorite online TV services such as UptownLiveTV, NSNewsTV, DigitalSoulTV and ComedyBanksTV.
Mike Street has penned a complete review of the browser.
But what I think this is creating segmentation for users of different communities, which could be taken positively and negatively as well. In my personal opinion we are a global community not communities by race gender or ethnicity in the online world, so why segment.
What do you think is this segmentation good or bad?
