Social networking sites are on the rise with a plethora of sites with options for friends to connect via the internet, share photos, news, make new friends etc. Some of these sites include Orkut, Facebook, Flickr and You Tube to name a few.Â A browser that effectively integrates all these sites into one is the Flock 2.0.3. A free web browser that makes it easier than ever to share photos, stay up-to-date with news from your favorite sites, and search the Web, Flock is built on Mozilla technologies known for their security and provides secure and spyware free operation.
By using Flock to do something cool like sharing a picture, song, news or videos, one tends to become a Flockstar. In addition to providing users with a variety of options to manage their profiles including the ability to allow easy media sharing with a drag and drop facility, upload photos and post blogs from anywhere in the network, notifications are automatically received when friends update their profiles on the sites and allow blogs to be placed on websites.
There is no need to worry about the security of user information when running Flock on another machine. As soon as the user logs out, any information that might have been left behind on the host system is erased. As and when a user logs into any of the social networking sites supported by Flock, the browser asks the user as to whether the account needs to be remembered. This allows for the provision of seamless integration with the social services.
Some of the features of this utility include:
. Blog Editor to post blogs on websites from anywhere along with a Flickr Top bar for photo management options.
. History Search along with a shelf for RSS integration.
Features that are new with version 2.0.3 include:
â€¢ Updated Flash version, with removal of Prownce, Piczo and Cooliris extensions.
â€¢ Ability to fix AOL mail guard along with Digg login features, Gmail webmail fly outs, you tube private message notification and Yahoo Mail Detection.
