Blackbird – A community oriented web browser

The Blackbird is a community oriented web browser (powered by Mozilla) especially for African American community. Just like any other browser, it also gives you access the web sites, but with more community-specific features. For example, Through ‘Black Search’, it moves important information from African American sites higher in your search results.

The Blackbird is just like Firefox browser – all settings and everything - and it not only provides easy access to Web 2.0 features and services, but a way to provide more visibility and access to African American content.

Blackbird gives web surfing experience with content that you would not otherwise find through its Black Search.

Features includes: Black Search, Black News Ticker, Black Bookmarks, Blackbird TV, Social Bookmarking , Email Manager and Social Network Manager.

  1. While I understand why & how the term "African American" came to be, it seems quite inappropriate in this context. Are we to assume that this is for black Americans only? It's of no use to black Africans, or black people in Europe, or India, or Canada...? Do the built-in, customized search engines find American content only? Are the social networks limited to American users only? Is the news ticker limited to stories and events that occur only in America? Of course not. The Internet is a global domain, so the "American" terminology in a misnomer, in this context.

    Even the application developers seem to be confused about the appropriate terminology uses: if "Blackbird," "Black Search," "Black News Ticker," "Black Bookmarks," and "Black TV" are appropriate, then why not "black people?" Saying "black people" would correctly identify at whom the application is aimed, and would not suggest it's limited to those in America.

    I'm curious: do black people in other countries use similar alternate terminology, or is this a uniquely American phenomenon?

  2. Thanks for sharing this!

  3. Let's be honest... This is the stupidest product I've seen for a long while. I'm black, by the way...
