It’s not just Opera that rolled out a Beta version of its browser this week (Opera rolled out version 10.60 Beta). Flock also rolled out a Beta – to be more precise, the developer rolled out Flock 3.0 Beta. This is exciting news; just check out the new bits you can expect to get from Flock 3.0 Beta:

User Interface
Flock 3.0 Beta comes with a new clean, minimal user interface. This has something to do with the fact that Flock team ditched Firefox’s code in favor of the Google Chrome code. As you may already know, Chrome’s looks are a bit on the minimal side.

Speed
Flock 3.0 Beta is faster also because the Flock team ditched Firefox’s code in favor of the Google Chrome code. Flock used to be a bit on the sluggish side – this is no longer the case. When it comes to speed, Flock 3.0 can now best Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Mozilla’s Firefox.

A Central Location for All Your Social Media Assets
Flock 3.0 is more socially inclined than ever; in one place you will find videos, pictures, status, tweets, favorites, feeds and history.

“Anything that lives in the social network world now lives in the browser, presented in a way that is clean and easy to see and use. Add multiple social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and YouTube along with any RSS or ATOM feeds in one, easy-to-access place. Update status on Facebook and multiple Twitter accounts from the same location. Integrated support for business networking site LinkedIn is in development and will be available later this summer,” explained Flock in a press release.

Social Features
  • Groups - Group people, topics and information so that you can “channel surf” the Web
  • Right-hand scrolling bar to complement the browsing experience
  • Flock Explorer (from the URL bar in the sidebar) lets you search and discover what friends, feeds, and favorite Web sites have to say on any topic of interest. Flock Explore is powered by Google’s search engine.
  • One click is all that’s needed to post something to Facebook or Twitter. You can respond, reply or retweet without leaving the page you’re on.
  • Share any type of web content
  • Link multiple social profiles to one person
  • Backup your favorite bookmarks, Groups, RSS, content and settings online
  • Flock profile page created when you set up an account

Customization
You can customize your Flock experience by using extensions – Google Chrome Extensions that is.

“Our interactions with people online have changed everything about the way we discover, shop, work and play,” said Shawn Hardin, CEO of Flock. “The new Flock is designed to naturally complement the value we place in relationships and puts you at the center of your friends and their conversations while you browse the Web. Conventional browsers like Internet Explorer and Safari aren’t built to bring together the conversations and content that matter to each user. Flock is the only browser with the best of the social Web built-in.
