New way to browse the web


Swarm is a graphical map of hundreds of websites, all connecting to each other. It updates itself every second with where people are going and coming from. As sites become more popular, they move towards the center of the swarm. Website traffic is symbolized with thin lines. Each time you see a line appear, it means someone has moved from one site to the other. You can gauge how many people are swarming around based on the number of lines. Swarm allows you to chat about any link you see. When you see a little chat icon flash, it means people are actively chatting about that link. You don't have to wait for the icon to appear, you can begin talking about any link you find (and hopefully someone will join in!)
