Flock is a web browser built on the Mozilla Firefox open source browser. It specializes in providing social networking and Web 2.0 facilities built into its user interface.

With Flock you can keep in touch and share text, links, pictures, video and more with friends, family and co-workers across the entire internet with unparalleled speed and seamless ease.

It delivers a more personal experience of the web, where its users are in control and more connected to what's important to them.
