“VCs pump more money into Flock
Flock’s chief executive, Bart Decrem, at right in this picture, reports that his Palo Alto browser start-up Flock has raised fresh capital from Bessemer, Catamount and a bunch of angels.
Worth keeping an eye on this company. We reported on them here.
Now Wired has done a piece, and generating buzz that has baffled David Cowan, the investor over at Bessemer. Namely, the Flock product isn’t even out yet.”

“After using the browser for the better part of 2 weeks, I can assure you that it is not like anything I have used thus far. In fact, this is what you always thought browsing would be like in 2006. Maybe I’m too much of a geek, but that is uber exciting to me.
I can’t tell you too much about what you’ll find after downloading the package when it becomes available next month, but I can tell you that it meets a number of needs. There’s seemingly been a second wind tech boom in the last year as many developers have chosen to tweak the wheel, rather than reinvent, thus raising the bar of a few recently dead end standards. Flock takes advantage of these latest surges and wraps it up all nice and neat for you.
What I like best about Flock is that it is so light! You get a cool interface that literally makes you feel as though you’re floating in the clouds and it’s makes browsing just as easy. Get ready!”H2 Orange Live – Michael Rakowitz
“When former Mozilla developers start whispering about a new open-source browser, the gentle humming tremors of those whispers don’t take long to crescendo. It’s Thursday, and after a Wired.com article hit the Web, everybody has started talking about Flock.com.” Web Pro News – Jason Lee Miller
“I’ve been using Flock, it is indeed very cool. Integrated tagging (although no del.icio.us yet), flickr, and blogging all point to a future where the browser is much more than an empty box.” Jeffrey Nolan
“The Flock “social web browser” is hot because early adopters are tired of using a hodgepodge of tools to create and share flickr photos, blogs, podcasts, etc. Flock has great promise because it’s open source (built on top of the Firefox browser code), cross platform and all the social Web 2.0 stuff is being integrated right in. It is indeed a social web browser even at this very early stage (it’s at version 0.2 in closed beta!). No need to use multiple tools to create compelling content constantly. Just use one: flock!” Bryght
