Flock Gains Traction with Downloads

Filed under
Software

Flock, the new Web browser which aggregates services no other browser has yet been able to provide, has attracted widespread user attention with its first beta version after only six weeks in release.

Co-founder and CEO Bart Decrem told Ziff Davis Internet Wednesday that the fledgling company has hired more staff to handle demand for the browser, plus service the needs of a quickly growing support community-despite the fact that the initial release was intended for evaluation by Web developers only.

Flock, which started with about a dozen full-time staff and three part-timers, is "closing in on about 20 full-timers," Decrem said, including employees in Europe and Japan.

Flock 0.49 has been downloaded "multiple hundreds of thousands of times," he said, adding that the company really doesn't have an accurate download counter yet.
