Flock is the best web browser right now

I have been using flock for a little while now, and am pretty impressed to say the least. In fact, I urge you to give it a test run. Visit Flock.com to download it for FREE right now!

Firefox is a browser that I really really like, its fast, easy to use and the amount of great extensions available is insane! The main reason I originally stopped using the very crappy Internet Explorer, is because of the way it rendered CSS in websites I was working on. Basically it did, and in some instances STILL displays the CSS incorrectly, making your well designed websites look crappy! This is NOT a problem with real browsers like Firefox and Flock.

I wanted to make a comparison between Firefox and Flock, but I dont think I need to. For me, Flock has everything Firefox has, and can do more. As you know, I am very into Social Networking, and this is an element of the web that Flock has embraced by building social networking and other Web 2.0 features into its interface. Cool! Flock is also using the same architecture as Mozilla Firefox, so basically its Firefox that has been pimped out for Web2.0. Excellent for people like me!

Did you know that Flock was voted #6 in PC World’s Top 100 Products of 2008?

Social Networking and Media Services

Flock has the slogan “The Social Web Browser”, and they are not kidding…

Flock easily integrates social networking and media services including Facebook, Digg, Pownce, YouTube, Twitter, Flickr, Blogger, Gmail, and Yahoo Mail to name a few.

Cool things Flock can do:

  1. Flock can indicate when friends have updated their profile, uploaded photos or other things.
  2. Flock has internal features that allow simpler sharing for text, links, photos or even entire videos.
  3. Flock has its own system allowing quick preview of online videos and photos, and subscription to video feeds.
  4. Flock’s Feed Reader organizes Atom and RSS feeds.
  5. Flock’s Blog Editor allows direct posting into a designated blog, along with being a blog reader.
  6. Flock also allows for third-party add-ons, including a number of Firefox extensions.

About point six above, what is also cool about flock is that because it uses the same architecture as Mozilla Firefox, many of those Firefox extensions work perfectly fine in Flock! That is awesome! I still have to come across one that DOESN’T work, so far, I haven’t had any problems :)

Speeding up Flock

Yes, you can speed up your browsing experience! There have been some people who have had speed problems browsing with Flock. I am not one of these people, but I do have a solution for those of you who need it. Follow these steps to speed up Flock once you have installed it successfully:

  1. type about:config into the address bar at the top and wait for page to load
  2. in the filter type network.http
  3. locate the strand called network.http.pipelining and double click it to change the value from false to true
  4. Do the same to network.http.proxy.pipelining
  5. Then locate network.http.pipelining.maxrequests – double click and change the value to 30 or higher
  6. Finally, close flock and load it up again…

Now I just have to get over the guilty feeling I have from not using Firefox anymore!

    Here, those аt nο.3,4 аnԁ 5 dont hаνе much tο talk аbουt, bυt Chrome аnԁ Firefox hаνе a large gallery οf themes. In Google Chrome, thеrе аrе a variety οf themes produced bу Google οr аnу anonymous person. Firefox tοο provides many choices.
