Flock 3.0 ditches Firefox for Chrome


Flock, what i considered the “social Firefox” as it was built on the Mozilla platform and integrated out of the box many social web elements into the browsing experience (Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Picasa etc) is now built on Google Chrome, to be precise on Chromium. The result is a slim speedy web browser that has lost some of its features (Media Bar) but has maintained its social characteristics and supports the majority of Chrome features, including extensions. Its interface even occupies less on-screen real estate by default than Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

Chromium based Flock v.3.0 (beta) is free download for Windows systems (XP, Vista and Windows 7), a Mac version will be out later this summer. Read the Press Release
