Flock: The Web 2.0 Browser

Category: Editorial


Our friends at TechCrunch have been talking about Flock, the new browser on the block, for awhile now.

There are more screen shots available showing us how Flock is participating with other services and letting us do more with our browser.

It is about time that we change some of the browser paradigms. Bookmarks/Favorites don’t work. We use these days, and before even going to that we use Google.

Flock also gives you a blogging topbar, aiming to merge our browser needs with our blogging ones.

This is only the beginning I am sure. We need people to experiement with better ways to browse.

I am sure that there are a bunch of features that would REALLY help with Ajax style applications. Wouldn’t it be nice if the spinning wheel would spin in one way for a full load, and another for an Ajax load, so we didn’t have to come up with our own usability standards?

Bring it on Flock!
