Socially Oriented, Firefox-based Flock Browser Keeps Getting More and More Popular

Based on the same code as Mozilla’s Firefox browser, Flock is a browser that puts the user’s social networking needs above all else. So if you are a Facebook and Twitterholic, then perhaps you should give Flock a try. Amongst Facebook users for example, Flock is quite a popular browser.

Back in October 2009, the Flock team was happy to announce that Flock's total number of unique users on Facebook was of 2 million. In December, they were even happier when they announced the number of users grew by half, reaching the 3 million mark. It is now February 2010, and the interest in Flock keeps growing – the number of users has surpassed the 4.2 million mark announced happily VP of Business Development and Marketing with Flock, Dan Burkhart.

“Interest in the Flock social browsing experience continues to grow at an impressive rate worldwide. We continue to break new records on a weekly basis – in fact this week Flock surpassed 4.2 Million users on Facebook, which is up from 3 Million in early December. Flock’s recent acceleration in growth has come primarily by way of active recommendations from our most enthusiastic fans – telling their friends about us via Facebook and Twitter,” commented Dan Burkhart.

The latest version of the Flock browser is Flock 2.5. We covered Flock 2.5 in detail here; but if you can’t be bothered to read that article, here’s the short version of what version 2.5 has to offer:
- You can read Twitter replies in the Flock sidebar and you can save Twitter searches. The sidebar also provides the option to reply to various tweets and click on any link provided in a tweet.
- Twitter Search support added to MyWorld.
- Use Facebook Chat no matter what web page you visit.
- Drag and drop content (videos, photos, URLs) to share it.

If you would like to get Flock 2.5, you can download the browser here.
