Flock – social networking browser

Flock is a web browser based on Firefox. So what makes Flock different from the hundred other browsers out there ?? Well Flock is very social networking oriented browser which makes it easier to read RSS feeds, share photos, blog interesting pages and bookmark pages from the toolbar.

After installing Flock lets you import bookmarks and preferences from IE and Firefox. The first thing you notice after running Flock is the My World page. This page contains your Favorite sites, feed and media along with a search engine. I have temporarily removed the feeds to arrange them later on.

An Accounts and Services button on the MyWorld page allows you to open a sidebar, from which you can select your accounts like YouTube, Blogger, Wordpres, etc making it easier to login to your accounts.

A button called Web Clipboard allows you to drag and drop interesting images or text while you surf. More like an advanced Google Notebook feature…

Another useful feature in Flock is that when you browse sites like YouTube, a media bar appears showing other posts by the author and the author’s favorites.

There are many more interesting new features in Flock but I’m not going to review everything here. You can download and try Flock here.

    I have used flock earlier and think it is a real good browser if you want to social network with ease.

    But I have had lots of memory issues with it hopefully they have fixed it with this version.

    Very true Keith, today after a week since i installed Flock, it started crashing and I had to uninstall it.
    Still in beta, guess we will have to wait a bit….

    Yup Flock is a great browser, but beginners may get away seeing the myraid of options Flock gives it users.

    Anyways, it’s time for me to upgrade and try the latest version. Thanks for the reminder :)

  • Flock browser is an integral assisting tool for managing social networking section at one place. At SEO, we prefer Mozilla Firefox 4 beta, google and yahoo toolbar along with flock and few others.
