    August 3, 2010  |   By josippo

    "Not the Flock we know and recognize-"

    July 13, 2010  |   By andreaborman

    Version: Flock 3.0.0.3737 beta

    Pros

    It looks exactly like Google Chrome and frankly I don't think this works so well.I and most of us have more than just one browser on our computer and we like each one to have different functions.Flock-social networking-chrome-advanced.But NOT THIS.

    Cons

    another imitation of Google chrome that's not needed as there are already several Chrome browsers.

    Summary

    I and most people have more than one browser on my computer. Flock and Firefox for social networking and Google Chrome for more advanced jobs on the web, and when we need an even faster browser. Then Google Chrome or Chromium will do the job.I love flock browser.All the previous versions and the current version perform well and also the normal version of Flock has character. As does Firefox the sister browser from Mozilla. But we don't need this version, which is just another imitation of Google Chrome but not very well done.Google Chrome and Chromium are good browsers,but we also need an alternative browser like Firefox and regular Flock as well. The regular Flock we know now is very user friendly and has character. But this beta version is none of this,and while I value and use G. Chrome and chromium and Comodo Dragon browsers,which are all chrome based. I would hate to see Mozilla do away with the wonderful Firefox and Flock we know now, and love, and replace it with chrome. As I think we should have a choice of different functioning browsers,such as Chrome and Firefox based. As both are different but both work well and so does the Flock that we all recognize. Which should not be changed or discontinued as if we want to use Chrome,then we have Chromium or Google Chrome and other chrome browsers. So we don't need a Chrome version of Flock or Firefox.

    Updated on Jul 14, 2010

    As I mentioned Flock Beta is yet another Google Chrome clone and now that I have thought about this it seems a good idea,for Mozilla to bring out a Chrome based Flock and Firefox. For those who use the regular browsers but also want a Chrome browser.So here both Flock and Firefox Beta can be used alongside regular flock and Firefox and I have both versions on my computer. One of Flock and the other Flock Beta which are two separate browsers. I also have Firefox and Firefox Beta and both the Beta versions of Flock and Firefox can be used as an alternative to Google Chrome. For those want a Chrome browser but don't want to use Google Chrome or the other Chrome browsers out at the moment. But what I don't like about Flock Beta is that you can only install Google Chrome themes and not Flocks own add ons. Flock users don't want a Google Chrome theme,but Flock Beta is working okay. I would keep your standard version of flock and Firefox and use Flock and Firefox Beta along site of these.

    "Very smooth and delightful browser!"

    June 30, 2010  |   By jmanders2009

    Version: Flock 3.0.0.3737 beta

    Pros

    It offers a very simple and user-friendly experience.

    Cons

    The only thing I have seen that I wish could be improved is an easier method of managing my "Favorites" list. I also wasn't particularly satisfied with the way my existing bookmarks from my other browsers were imported into Flock.

    Summary

    I think this browser has potential as one of the leaders among those preferred by social networking addicts.

    "Faster Flocking"

    June 27, 2010  |   By Harl A Quin

    Version: Flock 3.0.0.3737 beta

    Pros

    Much better looking, cleaner interface, less clutter.

    Cons

    Access to more social networking and microblogging sites built in would be nice.

    Summary

    Far less clunky and much more responsive than the old, Mozilla based Flock. Try it.

    "I find it lacking"

    June 17, 2010  |   By davew0958

    Version: Flock 3.0.0.3737 beta

    Pros

    Based on Chromium,so it's stable and fast. The sidebar is convenient for quick access to Facebook or Twitter activity.

    Cons

    I find it lacking a great deal compared to previous versions. Too much support for services has been stripped from it.

    Summary

    Based on the track record of the Firefox-based version of Flock, if they are that slow to update the Chromium-based version, there is really no compelling reason to switch to it from other Chromium-based versions. With extensions, as much social-networking functionality can be easily added to any version of the browser without the need for Flock's offering. It's really too bad, because Flock had a nice little niche with its previous offering that will be lost if they don't had some compelling feature set.

    "Don't like it at all"

    June 16, 2010  |   By ILuvComputers

    Version: Flock 3.0.0.3737 beta

    Pros

    None at all

    Cons

    It's trying to be like Google Chrome. Frankly, if I wanted Chromium, I'd use either Google Chrome or Comodo Dragon. Way too late in the game for Flock I'm afraid.

    Summary

    I do wish the developers at Flock the best of luck. Sadly, they ruined a unique and fun browser. I think they'll be losing a lot of users.

    "STICKING WITH THE 2.6 VERSION"

    June 16, 2010  |   By krazytrixxxsta

    Version: Flock 3.0.0.3737 beta

    Pros

    i didnt keep it long enough to find out.

    Cons

    it feels and look like google chrome, which i hate. no longer compatible with mozilla fire fox add ons.

    Summary

    i have never used flock as a social browser, the thing i like most about it, is it search engines integration capabilities and it feel and design and it compatible with the majority of fire fox add ons. if you going to use it for social browsing and you love google chrome , then you most likely going to love it. as for me, since i hate chrome, and i dont have a myspace, twitter, facebook, and those other social site. the new version is definitely not for me.
