Description
  • Flock is The Social Web Browser. It’s the browser, evolved for people. It is free to download and use. Flock simplifies and extends the use of social and web-based applications to enable the richest user experience possible across information-gathering, sharing, communication, self-expression and interaction. Flock delivers a more personal experience of the web, where its users are in control and more connected to what they value. Flock was founded in 2005. The company is based in Mountain View, CA, with an office in Victoria, British Columbia.
  • Flock was a web browser that specialized in providing social networking and Web 2.0 facilities built into its user interface. Earlier versions of Flock used the Gecko HTML rendering engine by Mozilla. Version 2.6.2, released on January 27, 2011, was the last version based on Mozilla Firefox. Starting with version 3, Flock was based on Chromium and so used the WebKit rendering engine. Flock was available as a free download, and supported Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and, at one time, Linux as well. Support for Flock was discontinued in April 2011. A year later in April 2012 the old Flock website was back and carried a vague indication that the project might be resurrected, inviting readers to add themselves to a mailing list to receive future news. As of April 2013 the site redirected to another business, indicating that the resurrection of the web browser did not occur. In August 2014 the site was resurrected once again with a new line of text indicating the continuation of the project stating "We are currently working on something awesome. Enter your email below to be notified when it's ready".
