Tweetdeck to launch web client
Popular app Tweetdeck has announced it will launch concluding the popularity of its Chrome web app. The app will work on Chore, Firefox, and Safari at first but support for Opera and IE8/9 will be coming afterwards, stated a blog post. Tweetdeck web will have the same features and look as the Chrome app but will not have Twitter streaming. The interesting part about this is that Tweetdeck was recently bought by UberMedia who has had some ugly run ins with Twitter including having several apps suspended for TOS violations. Twitter has basically stated several times not to create flat out Twitter clients, and if the popularity of the Chrome app for Tweetdeck is any indication, Tweetdeck web could be a major competitor with not only Twitter, but also Seesmic and Hootsuite.
