BlackBird Web Brower

There are many web browsers on the market today

  • Safari
  • Internet Explorer
  • Firefox/Mozilla
  • Chrome
  • Opera
  • A host of others
  • AOL and others simply tie into existing which is why it is not listed. 

One of my favorite is Blackbird. What I like about this browser is while built on the Mozilla platform it is targets to a specific audience. Tech savvy individuals who are interested in social networking and staying abreast of current events and affect the African American ethnic group. 

If you notice the start screen you are given the chance to search immediately. Also notice below the address bar there is a ticker showing up to the minute news in the AA community

Native to the application is the ability to integrate your email, connect to facebook and myspace, share the things that interest you with others and see what others are sharing, donate to a worthy cause, and to lookup local ethnic businesses. Did I forget to mention the video channel? Yes, this is a well thought out experience. 

The Bookmark bar is great. It not only allows you to integrate your favorite rss feeds, but comes preinstalled with HBCU information and relevant shortcuts to

  • Lifestyle
  • People and networks
  • News and politics
  • Blogs
  • Sports and entertainment
  • Business and professional
  • Community organizations
  • Black Colleges and universities

I could go on and own about how much I enjoy the experience of using it however the best way to understand something is to use it yourself. Go to and try it – would be curious to know your thoughts.
