Earlier last week our buddy Paul published the Definitive Flock Review. It was an excellent review that covered just about every aspect of flock, from installing to each one of it’s highly talked about features. The review explained so much, it convinced me to finally take the plunge and download flock.
What is it
Flock is the newest browser to be based off of Mozilla’s Gecko Rendering Engine. Before you roll your eyes and say, “another one”, take a look at what flock has to offer.’
Flock was set out to be a “social browser”, allow the incorporation of Flickr, social bookmarking, and even blogging directly from the browser, regardless of what page you were on.
Visiting flock for the first time, you instantly fall in love with the simplicity of the site design. The redesign, handled by Bryan of Avalonstar (easy to tell once you look at the colors and fonts), conveys Flock message clearly and easily, even using some flash to showcase some of Flocks’ features.
Download and Installation
Flock is a generally small download, weighing in at just under 8MB. Installation is quick and easy. Upon launching flock for the first time, you are given the chance to import settings from both Firefox and Internet Explorer, and then there is a short setup wizard that follows. You are then taken to the flock welcome page, highlighting all of its various features.
Worth A Look
There are many wonderful features that Flock has incorporated. Personally, my favorites are built in rss reader and live search, that scours the net for search results while you continue to browse around.
