Flock is een browser die gebruikmaakt van de code van Mozilla Firefox 3.0 en wordt geleverd met diverse opties voor de gebruiker om te interageren met diverse socialenetwerksites op het internet. Voorbeelden hiervan zijn Flickr, Facebook, Youtube,, Technorati, Photobucket en Digg. Voor meer informatie en een demonstratie van verschillende features verwijzen we jullie door naar deze handleiding. De ontwikkelaars hebben in de vorm van 2.0 een nieuwe versie van Flock met de volgende aankondiging uitgebracht:

Flock 2.0, Out Of Beta And Ready To Rock

Less than a year after the initial release of Flock 1.0, we are proud to release Flock 2.0. Flock 2.0 has been through three beta cycles, enjoyed tremendous feedback from our community of users and is a significant step forward in capability and quality. And, this final release of Flock 2.0 has some great new capabilities that have not been made available in any prior 2.0 beta release. Let me take a moment to tell you what to expect in Flock 2.0.

Flock 2.0 is built on the latest Firefox 3 technology from Mozilla, so you’ll find it to be snappy, safe and easier to use. Flock 2.0 also comes with some great new features not found in any other browser today.

First of all, we’re very pleased to announce that we’ve added MySpace as a major new addition to our suite of 23 other popular services integrated within Flock. MySpace was the #1 most requested service from our community. Now MySpace lovers can stay up to date with their MySpace friends and activities no matter where they are on the web. MySpace users will also find that Flock offers the easiest way to upload photos, insert photos and videos in MySpace comment fields and share most any web content by simply dragging and dropping it into the Flock People sidebar.

Flock 2 also incorporates Media RSS (MRSS) detection capability so that you can subscribe to media streams being made available by websites, even if the site isn’t one of the 23 integrated with Flock. Once you’ve subscribed to a media stream via Media RSS, you will be notified about the arrival of new photos and videos posted by your favorite sites and they will flow right into your MyWorld page in Flock, so you never miss out on updates to your favorite media streams. We’ll go into this great new capability in depth in a later blog post.

For the first time, we are also making themes available for Flock 2. Check out and install a theme to customize the look of Flock. We’re shipping today with two new themes, and will be adding many more over the coming weeks and months.

If you’re already a Flock user – thank you! And, get ready for the best version of Flock ever! If you are new to Flock, give Flock 2.0 a test drive and discover what users from 165 countries and territories all around the world already know – with Flock you will rock the web! With the latest Firefox 3 architecture under the hood, you’ve now got the latest technology with the most innovative features available in any browser today. If you’ve been using the 2.0 beta, we highly recommend you upgrade…there’s a lot in this release that you haven’t seen yet.

Check it out and let us know what you think. Your feedback has been essential in developing Flock 2, and we have been growing with the strong global support of satisfied Flockstars everywhere who have been telling their friends: “get ready to meet your new favorite browser”.

Dit is volgens mij zo iets als Netscape Navigator, Firefox met een paar extraatjes :) ->

* Flock can indicate when friends have updated their profile, uploaded photos or other items.
* Flock has internal features that allow sharing of text, links, photos and videos.
* Flock has its own "media bar" allowing preview of online videos and photos, and subscription to photo and video feeds.
* Flock's Feed Reader organizes Atom and RSS feeds.
* Flock's Blog Editor allows direct posting into a designated blog, along with being a blog reader.
* Flock's web-mail component allows users to check supported web-based email without going to the site, compose new messages, and drag-and-drop pictures and videos from the mediabar or webclipboard into a new email message.
* Flock also allows for third-party add-ons, including a number of Firefox extensions.

Is wel leuk voor de 'social' types, maar voor tweakers? :+

Waarom zouden er onder tweakers geen "'social' types" zijn?
Er staat een " :+ "achter, m.a.w dat moest je niet zo serieus nemen ;)
jaja ik studeer en elektrotechniek en daarom ben ik contactgestoord :+

veelvoorkomende reactie: "studeer jij elektrotechniek?

edit: alsof contactgestoordheid een voorwaarde is om elektro te studeren
