Flock, an open-source browser built based on FireFox, will be having its beta launch in early October according to Wired News. Several members on Flock‚Äôs development team are programmers from Mozilla Foundation. Flock is also identified as the social browser, which means the browser plays nicely with numerous popular web services.
Flock advertises itself as a ‚Äúsocial browser,‚Äù meaning that the application plays nicely with popular web services like Flickr, Technorati and del.icio.us. Flock also features widely compliant WYSIWYG, drag-and-drop blogging tools. The browser even promises to detect and authenticate all those user accounts automatically. It‚Äôs a clear attempt to be the browser of choice for the Web 2.0 user.
