What the flock is Flock? It’s a browser built atop Mozilla’s Firefox that’s been available since 2005. Called a “Social Web Browser”, Flock has been “fully integrated with a wide range of social networking websites and popular blogging tools.”


This is done via modifications to the browser window to bring social networking sites and features to the fore.

People have flocked to social networking sites, so creating a browser optimised for social networking seems like a really good idea, and so far, it has proven quite popular.

Funnily enough, Flock  1.2 only left its official “beta” status on June 2, 2008, and a mere two weeks later the new version 2.0 beta 1 has arrived based on Firefox 3.0 code, which makes me think Flock need to work a bit harder and faster in getting its new browser versions out there.

Still, given how stable Firefox 3.0 has been, Flock 2.0 beta 1 should still be very solid, while still having the older Flock 1.2 available on its stable, but older Firefox 2 platform.
