Thread: Flock -- fantastic browser

In recent months I've become addicted to Flock. I don't use it all the time -- I have different browsers for different types of surfing -- but Flock rates among my favs.

hmmmm never heard of it, what's a top feature over another browser? Looks like a blue firefox.

If, for example, you're a Flickr user, there's a sweet feature in the GUI that allows you to have a stream float at the top of a window while you go about surfing The Tubes™. It also has other features that, as you note, exist with Firefox -- whether via plugin or otherwise. The nice part being that some of these perks come pre-installed.

I used flock for a bit on my linux machine...I'm sure its changed since then but it was a good browser. At the moment I'm diggin' Google's new Chrome browser and Firefox 3.

I'm tempted to try Chrome but am leery of anything and everything related to or created by Google.

The difference is the depth and breadth of what The Google has on you ... potentially ...
- web search history
- email -- contents, recipients & senders
- phone numbers searched for
- map searches
and more ... plus, let us remember, The Google is registered as a telco which gives them access to more of our personal data.
Collectively it's just too much data held by one company that has limited restrictions placed on what they do with that information.
Check out Steve Rambam's talk from the Last Hope.

Google owns the world. Can't wait to try Chrome on Osx.

I have'nt tried Flock yet but I've heard good things about it. I used to use firefox but then switched over to Camino which is made by the same people (Mozilla Group) except its built just for the mac.
Nice and simple look/feel to it. You can check it out here..: )

I'm also a Camino user (I frequent multiple browsers). Camino is slick as well.
