No More Flock Browser Updates [pcworld.com]
Flock users may want to start looking for a replacement. The social networking-infused Web browser, and Eddy award winner, will be discontinued as of April 26th, according to an end of support notice posted on the developers' Website.
First released in 2005, Flock set itself apart from its more prominent competitors by focusing on integration with social networking sites. It sported a built-in RSS reader as well as allowing users to post videos, photos, and updates from their browser to sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Flickr, Blogger, WordPress, and more. While the most recent version of the browser, 3.0, was based on Google's open-source Chromium code, previous versions had been built off Mozilla's Gecko rendering engine.
