Flock and roll!!!

The web browser for you and your friends.

In the last couple of days the Flock browser achieved public beta status. This means I'm finally allowed to talk about it. I've been testing early versions for a few months now, and it's safe, so don't worry, but its pre-beta status meant that it was bad karma to be promoting its use to others. Those days are over, so now I can tell you: YOU MUST USE FLOCK!

What's it all about?

Flock is an open-source browser based on the Firefox Mozilla html rendering engine, which itself is an increasingly popular alternative to Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The ethos of the Flock team is to create a browser which does more than allows you to view web pages that other people have created. It allows you to take control and use it to create and share content yourself. This is the backbone of the Web 2.0 movement.

By creating appropriate accounts and registering them in Flock you can use your browser to:

  • share your photographs online with friends and be notified when they upload theirs;
  • write and publish a blog;
  • collate RSS feeds to make a single page representing the news that you want to keep track of;
  • customise your searches, using practically any search engine(s) you want;
  • share your favourites online, so that friends can see which pages you recommend.

Try it. You can import your favourites from your existing browser, and start sharing…
