Flock - the social web browser

Flock is a new web browser that has incorporated elements from the "social networking" craze. It is based on the Mozilla firefox technologies and was first released in June, 2006.

Extensions allow users to easily connect with other people online and share media. There are several "Flock" forums that link from the main is called "Flock Hacks" that chats about different ways to customize your Flock browser. An easy drag and drop function in the tool bar allows you to easily share photos with friends and family.

A Yahoo Maps toolbar has just been added and the ability to store personal bookmarks at Shadows (a link-sharing website....kind of like Flickr for your bookmarks.)

See more about Flock in the FireFox online magazine.
