Flock: Firefox's Social Cousin
In June, updates on two browsers were released: Firefox version 3 and Flock version 2 (beta). Those in the know are already aware that the Flock browser was built (at least in part) with Firefox 3 code as its foundation.
So here are some specifics for those who deal with requests from patrons for alternative browsers on library laptops or desktops or who may want a better understanding of the differences between Firefox and Flock. Plus, there is a small but growing population of users who are adopting Flock as their social Web browser. Consider this part of your Web 2.0 arsenal of information.
The most recent releases are faster and more secure than the preceding versions, and both are well ahead of Microsoft's Internet Explorer, the dominant browser in the marketplace. Both Firefox and Flock also offer smart bookmarking and use the individual's browsing history to enhance navigation.
