Blerp moves to beta, adds new browser plugins

By Brenton Currie     Jul 30, 2009 in Internet
Blerp, the startup which allows anyone to start a discussion layered over any website, today announced it has moved from alpha to beta on top of the release of two new browser plug-ins for both Internet Explorer and Firefox.
The service allows anyone to login using their existing Facebook, Twitter, Gmail or Yahoo accounts, in order to create "one giant conversation where everyone can participate."
“We’ve created a unified forum with discussions taking place across every possible website, and all this feeds back into Facebook and Twitter. It’s like breaking out of Zucker’s walled garden and going for a stroll across the Web,” says Steve Hoffman, CEO of RocketOn, Inc.
The new plugins for IE and Firefox allow users to instantly see posts and activity on whatever sites they visit, and also closely integrate with your friends on the service, allowing you to see instantly where your friends are commenting.
“The idea behind Blerp is to take every comment board and forum online and unify them into a single platform,” Hoffman says.
Blerp is a free service that works by adding an extra "hyper" layer on top of any website allowing users to post comments, videos, photos and other widgets from across the web. So on a band's website, for instance, you could post the group's latest YouTube videos on a side widget for any other Blerp user to see and comment on.
