urig Tidbits from a .net life

Flock is an interesting web browser that has spun off from Mozilla FireFox. The folks at have extended the FireFox open source code to include cool features like:

  • Favorites (=bookmarks) that are hosted on a central web server, so they can be accessed from anywhere on the net. They can also be tagged.
  • The history of pages that you visited is searchable (at last!)
  • Embedded blogging features that include posting to Flickr and easy aggregation of news feeds.
  • Available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
  • Currently it's open-source, although they say they might include proprietary code in the future

    It's still in the pre-release version (v0.5pre) so expect a bumpy test drive.

    All in all it seems like a promising addition to the web browser market. I'll be keeping an eye open for a proper beta.
