Which Social Browser Do You Use?

Marques recently did a screencast to talk about the new RockMelt browser. This week, he’s showing off another social browser alternative – the newest version of Flock.

Flock pulls all of your favorite people, places and content together in a convenient view and delivers a more personal experience of the web, where its users are more easily connected to what’s important to them.

There are many improvements over the last Flock version, including:

  • chrome 5 merge (many crash fixes, better extension handling, improved performance)
  • more HTML5 support (Geolocation APIs, App Cache, web sockets, and file drag-and-drop, improved crash handling)
  • expanded favorites management (bulk delete, tagging, public/private)
  • foreign characters can be used in tags, user names and Explore searches
  • increased performance and stability of Groups page
  • editable retweets (by default RTs are ‘new’ style, but as soon as you drop your cursor in and edit they become ‘old school’ RTs)

Are you using a social browser? Which one do you prefer – and why?
