urig Tidbits from a .net life

Flock is an interesting web browser that has spun off from Mozilla FireFox. The folks at www.flock.com 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.
