For those who are not using IE, Firefox or Safari browser, chances are they might be using Flock. For those who are not aware, Flock is a highly customizable and feature-rich browser created for the minority of users who don’t use the major browsers. Flock did not really strived to steal the thunder away from any these browsers despite is rich features. Until now, as Flock has released version 2.5 which is sure to please Twitter and Facebook fans.
Flock version 2.5 is introducing a seamless integration with both Twitter and Facebook adding to its already rich social features. Specifically the new Flock 2.5 features the following:
- Facebook chat on the browser windows right sidebar
- Drag and drop photos, videos, links and text into your chats
- You can also drag and drop photos, videos, links and text into your chats, making everything simple, social and fun
- Flockcast allows you to broadcast anything from blog posts and picture uploads as Twitter Tweets, and MySpace status updates to Facebook profile
- URL shortening when shared as a Twitter message
This is certainly a good move for Flock, with an 80% user growth since the stary of 2009, this will surely increase as both of Twitter and Facebook’s popularities will certainly have a great impact on Flock’s userbase.
