Flock:Firefox has Forked

I know I’m a little behind the curve on this one, but I recently discovered that my favorite web browser firefox had been forked. For those of you who don’t know what that means, forking is when an open-source program is modified enough to be called it’s own new program.

Firefox’s new fork is called Flock It is definately part of the new “Web 2.0” everyone is talking about, because it is a social browser. That means that it has features from a lot of the newest and greatest Web 2.0 apps built right into it. For example, I can be on Myspace, Facebook, Flickr, Youtube, Twitter, (even though I still find it to be an odd service) and many others.

Using Flock is really like experiencing Firefox for the first time, after a lifetime of using IE; a breath of fresh air. It integrates email, social networking, social bookmarks, the stability and speed of Firefox, and it is cross-platform.

Give it a try, you might like it 😀
