    ^tamago^ writes to tell us BusinessWeek Online is reporting that a new browser is stepping into the arena. This new competitor, Flock, hopes to change the face of web browsing by turning their’s into the swiss army knife of browsers. From the article: “Flock’s browser is built specifically for a new, emerging generation of Web users, one that isn’t satisfied passively browsing media online. Flock hopes to turn the browser into a dashboard for collaborating, blogging, sharing photos, reveling in a raft of other group activities that have recently caught fire online”

    The browser runs on gecko? That’s awesome. I’ll probably be switching once it comes out.

    It does run on Gecko. Firefox extensions will all work (although they may not all work the day the public beta comes out). We are looking, as much as possible to collaborate with the Mozilla community and will contribute our code back. Thanks for checking us out.
