    I played with it a little, but it's hard to beat Firefox, when it comes to functionality.

      I guess is enough for me to stick with Firefox (lately I have less trouble with SeaMonkey than Firefox for streaming video)

      Flock and Mozilla both use the same code, which is actually a spin off of the now extinct Netscape browser. Flock is pretty much just a different version of Firefox and some Firefox extensions work with Flock.

      Flock - Powered by Mozilla

      Will Flock be powered by Firefox 3?

      Flock 2.0 is now available and powered by the same technology as Firefox 3.

      Do web pages render differently in the Flock browser than in Firefox?

      Web pages render exactly the same in Flock as in Firefox.

      Do my Firefox extensions work in the Flock browser?

      Most Firefox extensions will work in Flock, with some exceptions. Additionally, extensions must declare themselves compatible with the latest versions of Flock and Firefox to work in either program. You can get Flock-specific extensions at extensions.flock.com.

      I find it humorous that people still spend time trying to find a better browser than FireFox...
      Even though Flock and SeaMonkey are their developments it seems futile.

          I got curious and gave Flock a try. Definitely a worthy contender.

          - Nothing sneaky tried to install
          - Imported ALL of my Firefox settings, not just some
          - Lot's of cool features
          - If your into social sites you'll love it, Facebook etc..

          I'll keep it around.
