Ed: Dating sites and apps tend to be destination sites, ie you only go when you start feeling lonely or in need of adventure but what if they were with you all the time like Instant Messaging or your Home Page?
This app shows you a potential partner each time you open a new tab in your Chrome browser and alerts you when there is a potential match or message.
It’s graphically beautiful in a way you are never going to get on an App with large hi-res photos, so much so that I suspect it will only ever have very attractive people on it.
Assuming they can get enough attractive people I think this will be a winner, I use apps Like ProductHunt and Momentum that open in Chrome when you make a new tab and they are highly effective at engaging, I end up using them 50 times a day, so I suspect a dating tab will be even more so.
I would imagine this is going to chew up a lot of time for single people, but that’s probably ok :). I particularly like the Founders sense of humour (check out his background below).
