The developers behind the web browser Flock have updated their program to version 2.5.1. Flock is based on version 3.0 of Mozilla Firefox and there are versions for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. The makers have labeled it ‘social browser’ because the browser offers built-in support for social networks such as Flickr, Facebook, Youtube, Del.icio.us, Technorati, Photobucket and various blogging and RSS services. Version 2.5.1, which is currently only available in English, has several bug fixes and security has been aligned with that of version 3.0.12 of Firefox:
New Features in 2.5.1
- Incorporated Mozilla’s 3.0.12 patch for Firefox.
