Flock - It's not just a YAB (yet another browser)

I have been testing flock - a new browser - for a while now. It is an open source browser and it is quite different from firefox, ie, and the like, because it supports social networks and web 2.0 technologies. It is available for windows, linux, and mac.


While most of the other browser still work very similar to the old mosaic the developers of this new browser seem to have tried to integrate the social networking part of the web 2.0 seamlessly. For example I can rightclick on any webpage, choose blog this, and publish it right away to one of my blogs. If I want to add a favorite (bookmark) it can automatically add it to de.licio.us if I want to. Also services like flickr can be integrated very intuitively. Of course this requires to register your accounts to these services within the flock browser.

For a couple weeks now I have been using only flock and so far there has been no need to go back to any of the other browsers.

Here is a quote from their site:

"Flock is an amazing new web browser that makes it easier to share media and connect to other people online. Share photos, automatically stay up-to-date with new content from your favorite sites, and search the Web with the most advanced Search Toolbar available today."
