Super fast social networking browser based on Chromium
Flock is a web browser that was originally based on Firefox and features broad integration with a wide range of social networks and blog sites. Flock 3.5 sees a considerable change with a switch from the Firefox base to a Chromium one, which provides faster performance and superior stability. When you start Flock, you have the option to import settings from Firefox or Safari. The new Chromium engine has made browsing lightning-fast in Flock, and it also seems much lighter on resources.
The social aspect of Flock has been maintained well, with special tools to keep track of friends from different social networking sites, write directly on your blog, upload images to your photo sharing site, read your favorite feeds, and access your favorite social sites (Digg, Twitter, YouTube, etc.) straight away. However, the main drawback of Flock is that all of the social networking features open on sidebars, which means you can't have all of them active at the same time. Despite this limitation, it's great to be able to update Twitter, for example, within your browser without needing a third-party client open.
Flock 3.5 is definitely the fastest Flock ever, although the developers now face competition from RockMelt, which is also based on Chromium and aims to be the ultimate social networking browser. Flock offers integration with LinkedIn, Flickr, and YouTube, while RockMelt only supports Facebook and Twitter. Overall, Flock is a super fast social networking browser that provides a seamless browsing experience with integrated social features.
