    I found this from News.com:

    A small team of developers in California on Friday launched a cutting-edge Firefox-based Web browser dubbed Flock, which integrates next-generation Web technologies such as RSS content feeds, blogs and bookmark and photo sharing.

    I've just downloaded and am about to try out its features. So far, it doesn't seem to be as fast as Firefox or Safari, but the feature set is impressive. It's based on Mozilla and is being tagged as the preview to Web 2.0, where teh Internet becomes a more collaborative place.

    As a form of review, please reply here and post your observations on its unique features and how they work.

    Flock is in developer beta preview stage, but you can download it from Flock.com.

    I was hoping to find a zoom-in zoom-out feature but none ...

    Beautiful little browser. I love the integration with other services - Flickr, del.icio.us, blogs, etc.

    Social browsing is the new wave!

    Tried Flock on both Windows and Mac. This browser shows a lot of promise! I especially love its blogging and tagging feature.

    I've actually been playing around with it for the last few days and I really like its Web 2.0 integration. Still a bit buggy though but great nonetheless. Firefox Plus!

    Re: flock browser

    Been using it since it came out. It's my main browser these days. Nice set of features I use a lot. Bloggers and flickrites would find Flock very useful. I also like how favorites (bookmarks) can be integrated with your del.icio.us or shadows account. Bookmark syncing different computers has never been so easy. I can also use all the Firefox extensions I use (some need a bit of tweaking to install, though).

    Old thread here...

    Buggy as hell and advertised features don't work as well as they should. Nice to see though that the latest version doesnt crash as much :p
