Default Flock browser

There is apparently a new browser, looking similar to Firefox, but which automatically scans all your favourite Websites and Feeds, including the several Facebook type thingies, and alerts you when there is anything new.

Your comments would be interesting.

I suspect that the volume of results would be overwhelming. How does it do an alert?

Flock is based on FireFox and is probably extremely useful for those who do a lot of social networking, swap photos through Flikr etc and take a lot of RSS feeds.

Alerts I gather are like the small boxes seen with the FF downlaod manager or the new mail alert in ThunderBird.

One of my daughters is going to install it on her Vista laptop so I'll get to see it in action!
