    Flock me! It’s a new 2.0 beta browser based on Firefox 3!

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Social networking browser, Flock, has reached the 2.0 milestone in beta
    | status, bringing together all the major social networking sites in the one
    | browser. Offering all the enhancements of Firefox 3.0, you’ll only be
    | flocking to use this browser if you’re a big social networking user.

    | 3 browser, which is scheduled for release Tuesday.



    What the Flock - the Social Browser Revolution

    ,----[ Quote
    | At first, Flock appealed to me in a purely superficial way. As you may have
    | noticed, I’m a sucker for style, good design and pretty textures, and Flock
    | certainly unites all of these features. *
    | Fortunately, that’s not all there is to tell. Flock is based on Mozilla
    | Firefox and was first released in 2005. Back then it may have been a little
    | bit ahead of its time since social web was only in its beginnings. Recently
    | however, Flock has enjoyed very positive media coverage and its popularity
    | virtually exploded in the beginning of this year, reaching close to three
    | million downloads and increasing the number of active users by 135% [Source
    | via Wikipedia]. * * *



    Flock 1.1.1

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Search with Flock is slightly different from other browsers because as text
    | is typed in, Flock will start searching from the web as well as a user's
    | favourites and history. These initial results are shown in a drop down menu.
    | Note that versions for Mac OS X and Linux are available from the Flock
    | website.



    Flock 1.0 Coming Fall 2007

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | When Flock 0.9 launched it was a pretty big overhaul, and now their next big
    | milestone is Flock 1.0 which currently has a vague release date of Fall 2007.
    | Honestly this is the dream browser for any heavy social network user out
    | there, and hopefully they’ll pursue more of the less tech savvy people who
    | use MySpace, Facebook, and YouTube because I can guarantee that they would *
    | absolutely love it. * *


    Review: Flock - Open Source Social Media Browser

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Flock is just released version 1.1 including new features like Picasa
    | integration and web mail integration with Gmail and Yahoo! mail. I really
    | like the inclusiveness of the Flock browser. The sidebar is very useful but
    | it’s hard to be deep with every feature set such as the RSS feature and the
    | Twitter integration. I think the web clipboard is very useful but there are
    | other types of clipboards that are universal for all your applications are
    | better tools for someone going to Where I think Flock falls down is in it’s
    | resource footprint, it seems to be a little sluggish in comparison to
    | Firefox. If you want fast performance and don’t care about all the other
    | stuff then stick with Firefox but if you want a single tool for all your Web
    | 2.0 needs you can probably save some time with Flock but you will still
    | probably need some of your favorite Firefox extensions to make it meet all
    | your needs. * * * * * * *


    Flock 0.9 lands gracefully

    | The Flock project has been building a "social Web browser" since 2005.


    Flock: social browser gets significant update

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | However, with version 0.9 comes a major UI redesign, and some significant
    | new functionality, as well as a foundation built on top of the latest
    | Firefox 2 codebase.
