Flock 0.9 lands gracefully

Filed under
Software

The Flock project has been building a "social Web browser" since 2005. The upcoming Flock 0.9 release adds new blogging features, integrates media streams into the browser, and includes an overhaul of the Flock bookmark system. It's not perfect yet, but Flock 0.9 is a big leap forward.

This release is a major update to the Flock 0.7 series, and a lot has changed. Since I tested a pre-release of a beta version, I wasn't too concerned with Flock's stability or performance. It did crash a few times while testing, and had some unsurprising performance issues that may be ironed out before the 0.9 release.

Flock has gotten a major facelift in this release, pulling away from the "slightly rebranded Firefox" look. The browser adds a mini-toolbar right below the standard location bar, new subscription icons in the toolbar, and other assorted user interface updates. The new look is very busy; some users will love the new "Web 2.0" look and feel, while others will be turned off.
