Flock Browser: Gloss Edition

CNET Editors' review

Don't let the interface scare you away from this social Web browser. We loved how it integrated our favorite social networking sites with browsing.

Flock Gloss Edition has a very pink user interface. Pink navigational buttons, pink tabs, pink toolbar, you name it. But as far as the layout and settings, everything will look familiar to you. The program let us import our default browsers settings, including our favorites and home page. In terms of browsing, the program was flawless. The tabs made it easy for us to switch back and forth between sites. But what stood out for us with this Web browser was its capability to connect to popular social networking sites. You can log onto social networking sites and Flock automatically adds your friends to the People sidebar. As soon as we logged into our Facebook account, our friends, along with their pictures and status updates appeared in the sidebar. The browser comes with tons of preset feeds and links to top entertainment, fashion, and beauty sites.

We have to admit, we were surprised by this Web browsers capabilities and features. This ones a keeper, and will appeal to all user levels. We did have to manually delete a file left behind after uninstalling the program from our PC.

    "Very attractive"

    June 3, 2010  |   By andreaborman

    Version: Flock Browser: Gloss Edition 1.2.6

    Pros

    This version of Flock is very attractive but it is not the currant version that is used now in 2010 which is Flock 2.5.6 the current version. So this version may not be supported on some sites that may prompt you to upgrade to 2.5.6.

    Cons

    It is now outdated so may not have full functions.

    Summary

    Flock is a very fast browsers and before Flock 2.5.6 I had version 2.3 because the current version would not install on my computer. But then I was able to upgrade to 2.5.6 because my computer recognise Flock through my previous version. But the one disadvantage of Flock is that you cannot change the theme or color of the browser, yet. So you have to stick with the default color of the browser and this cannot be changed. It would be better if we could change the colr of Flock as we can inChrome.

    Updated on Jun 3, 2010

    Flock is a very good browser but as I mentioned previously, you cannot change the color or appearence of this browser. Where as you can change the color of the Google Chrome browser.firefox has themes, bu,again,a lot of these are not compatable with the browser,Firfox or Flock either. I find this with all the Mozilla browsers. You cannot change the color scheme. But they and Flock are all good browsers.But it would be nice if we could change the color of Flock and other Mozilla browsers. Andrea.
