I heard about this the other day on a some website, and they recommed it, so I thought i'd give it a try myself and its actually quite good, in some ways better then Firefox, and miles better then IE.

It is designed mainly like the Mozilla Firefox browser as it has the same pop up type windows, (like downloads, and add-ons) but different, and nicer looking Visual Style - browser window and features which Firefox dosent have and is themed on a Social Network based browser and it intereacts with most of the well known sites (like MySpace, YouTube, and Photobucket) and you can easily transfer blogs, photos and all other types of media easily. And with them features you easily find out about new pictures or blogs your friends have added to their site by opening up a webpage called 'My World', which shows you like whats new really, like RSS Feeds and Favourite stuff. Also you can veiw and look at your media at the same time and have 1/3 page showing your photbucket stuff at the top of the webpage, while you look on the internet, and you can do the same if you install a add-on you can look at google maps. And it has some add-ons available, which work like firefox, and Ive heard that some of the FF add-ons do work with Flock. Also another good add-on is the Screenshot, which, yeah takes screenshots of the whole webpage, even if its not visible no the window.

Ive been using it for the last two days and I actually think its better then FireFox, in some ways, because oviously you could forget about the whole social networking thing, and not use them feautures but I still think it looks good even if you not bothered about that. And its works familar like Firefox, with tabs and bookmarks along the toolbar and stuff, and all the Firefox stuff can be imported in.

Its a bit bulky for my tastes.. i'd imagine it would take quite some time to open up and stuff.

I've found it's impossible to be more human than human. Inhuman, however, is easy.

Indeed, uses to much resources while doing nothing special.

Actually its quite quick, all you get it a small box screen and that takes just under 10secs when you click on the program, but when the browser opens up, its just like any other browser, and the features and add-ons just come on when you click on the toolbar

And also when it comes to accounts and details, you dont need to type in any password or anthing in the Flock settings as it automatically remembers your account and stores it in the My World Page for viewing and stuff

But yeah, the purpose of this web browser it that it makes it easier to do stuff, like upload pictures, all you do is drag into a window, or publish a blog, and save text and pictures from a webpage and save it for later, so really it acts and feels the same as FireFox really, but with the added bonuses and later hopefully more stuff like add-ons will come out when Flock is well known, because there is more I havent tried out yet, and themes will come out later too, but I think its quite good, ovoiusly other people will think different because if you dont need to use them features then you might aswell keep with Firefox, unless you like the different layout and colours and stuff
