Get ready to meet my new favorite browser. Its name is Flock. This fresh web browser on the block is heavily based upon Mozilla Firefoxand other Mozilla technologies. Thus, it’s faster, more secure and renders web pages better than the rubbish and almost obsolete Internet Explorer. Just recently, the first stable version of Flock was released. But already, more and more people are downloading it to join the herd.

Flock’s main feature is its built-in capability to interact with popular social networking web services such as Flickr, Facebook, Del.icio.us, Technorati, Photobucket, and various popular blogging and news aggregation services. I find its blog integration really essential, and it supports most of the major blogging platforms. Flock made writing, editing and publishing posts for my blog a lot quicker and easier.




Other equally important features of Flock:

• Flock's custom homepage, "My World", tells you when your friends have new photos and videos and when you have new feeds. My World gives quick access to your recently visited favorite sites as well.
• Bookmarks, in addition to being saved offline, can be replaced with del.icio.us. When a bookmark (known as a favorite) is added, it is added to the user's del.icio.us account.
• Favorites can be tagged
• A favorites and history section are integrated into the favorites manager
• Built-in full-text search using Clucene. Search as you type for pages in the cache
• News aggregator
• "Drag-and-drop" capability and a clipboard like feature known as "The Shelf."
• Media Mini Bar, allows you to search, stream, and view content off of sites like YouTube and Truveo.
• Built in uploader, to submit content to flickr and photobucket



Performance wise, Flock can be compared to where it came from. It is a fork of Firefox so don’t be surprised by its blistering speed and excellent security features. I honestly find its quickness and responsiveness equal to that of Firefox in spite of its many included add-ons and very sleek appearance. The only drawback is that it doesn’t have additional themes yet.

Flock is available for Linux, Windows, and Mac. There’s a good tutorial for installing it on Ubuntu that can be found HERE. So what are you waiting for? Get Flock now for free, and prepare to Flock 'n' Roll!

The product is just released mate. Things should be better with future version. But to start off with such a good package is extraordinary

As far as I know, Flock is there for a considerable amount of time and not a new launch.
