Flock 1.0 is out, and it’s branding itself as a social browser. What that means is that they’ve integrated a number of online applications and social networks in the browser, easily accessible via buttons and sidebars. You can post tweets, see what your Facebook friends are up to, upload photos to Flickr, or even post blog posts right then and there.
Sounds great, huh?
Actually, Flock is a great browser – read my review over at Devlounge, and do check it out for yourself as well.
My question, however, is if this is the future? Online applications being branded into browsers, the next logical step now that each and every social network’s got an API to connect to. And if that actually is the next step, how will this change how we browse the web?
What do you think? Is Flock 1.0 a pointer of thing to come?
