If you haven’t tried the flock browser, you should. Flock is the social web browser, connecting you to all of your online services and people. Flock is currently at version 1, and is built on Mozilla 5. I am writing this post into my blogger account from Flock’s built-in blog poster.
I got my copy from getdeb.net which downloads and installs a flock .deb file. You can also download flock as a .tar.gz file from Flock’s main site and compile it. After I downloaded it and set it up, I changed the icon to the default flock logo available through a Google search. I simply changed the color around the “globe” to the default Gnome panel color in Ubuntu, and ta-da. I was done.
Flock is somewhat different from other web browsers, in the way that it has so many more features. As I mentioned before, Flock is built on Mozilla, so the menu bar and general use is about the same as Firefox. However, that is where the similarities end. On the navigation bar, are links to get you to various services, from flickr, blog tools, photo sharing, feeds, and “People” sidebar. It also allows you to subscribe to feeds and add favorites easier than ever.
I will probably talk more about flock later, but I definately recommend it!
