Fizzik is a new web browser that’s designed to let you keep up with the news, video and social media on the web in different ways than before. The browser, built on Microsoft technologies, lets you scan the web and track news, multimedia, and social media. Search results from Bing are incorporated into the browser, too, and you can create “Channels” from your common searches, so you’re always on top of what’s new.
Web services like YouTube are integrated into the browser as well. In this case, instead of watching an embedded video on a web page, videos play full screen in the browser by default. Fizzik also lets you share links via Facebook and Twitter using sharing options built right within the browser.
This new browser was built using Microsoft .NET and Windows Presentation Foundation 3.5 and is compatible with most Windows operating systems. It embeds Microsoft’s Internet Explorer for Web browsing and Adobe’s Flash player for videos.
Fizzik hasn’t launched yet, but you can see a demo here and sign up to be notified when it becomes available.
