Flock 3 Browser Ditches Firefox In Favor Of Chromium

You might have used the Firefox-based Flock browser before this, as it comes with several custom add-ons for tightly integrating social networking with daily web browsing. It seems that the latest version of the Flock 3 beta has some bad news for Mozilla, though, as the browser has ditched Firefox in favor of Google’s Chromium and its WebKit engine. As expected, with such a radical change, the latest beta of this browser is very much different from the original. The latest version is currently only available for Windows, with a Mac beta due in July. It supports Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Flickr, obviously sticking to the most popular social networking and media sharing sites at the moment. Since it’s based on the WebKit engine, the browser itself feels very much like Google’s Chrome and Apple’s Safari browser. Are you planning to check out the Flock 3 beta, or are you perfectly content with the current browser that you’re using?
