Flock Browser

Announcement posted at Tux Magazine:

It's really new and not quite at click-and-run status yet, but the Flock Web browser now can be downloaded and experimented with here. Flock is a freely available open-source browser based on Mozilla Firefox that combines several tasks and applications in one place. It can, for example, be used to post blog entries, create and share photo albums and create and share favorite Web site lists. Flock also has a built-in RSS feed for scanning headlines. Aimed mostly at the ever-growing blogging population, Flock so far has partnerships with Flickr and del.icio.us. Flock is calling this release a Developer's Preview and doesn't suggest anyone use it as the primary browser just yet. The group hopes to have a Consumer version ready by December.
