Flock, Award Winner For Social Media Browser

Built for Facebook & Twitter Stay Connected

Sebuah browser yang karena saya katro' baru saya kenal sekitar november kemarin dari laptop inspiron temen. Sempat tertarik dengan tampilannya yang seperti didesain khusus. Selang beberapa waktu saya cari tahu tentang browser ini. Eh ternyata ada juga versi untuk GNU/linux-nya. Buru-buru aja saya download, install dan test drive :D. Meski gak punya lagi akun di fb, tapi browser ini sering saya gunakan sebagai alternatif dari firefox.

The Best Free Software of 2010
"The self-described 'social Web browser' is built on the same underpinnings as Firefox, but it gets its social on by integrating with sites and services—most recently, Twitter and Facebook. "

Webware 100 Winner: Browsing
"Flock is a Web browser that's comes with social-networking features built-in. It uses the same rendering engine as Mozilla's Firefox, and can even install most Firefox add-ons. Where it stands apart is in letting users keep track of social activity on sites like Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, Flickr, and others."


Web Winners and Losers in 2009
By Joe Brockmeier for Linux Magazine
Flock, the “social” Web browser, picked up a minor win here by being chosen as an alternative for the [Microsoft Windows] “browser ballot.” Though Flock is a nifty idea and has interesting features, it lacks the marketing muscle of the major players. This might help the scrappy little gang of “Flock Stars” to increase Flock’s market penetration.

By Paul Boutin for VentureBeat/The New York Times
As more of my work colleagues take to Twitter and Facebook, being able to drag and drop items without losing my place onscreen may prove to be a productivity booster.
