Sad to see Flock go. I liked it a lot and used it quite a bit in the days when it was using the Gecko engine. Then I saw they had switched to WebKit using the Chrome method of separating tabs into their own processes, which I like. But I could never find out if they were sending data to Google or not, so I didn't use it. I didn't need the social networking features, but I loved the interface and the concepts behind Flock, basically a Firefox built on top of Chrome. Hopefully the code gets picked up. The Flock FAQs states that the development team is now working on games for social media and mobile platforms. I wish them well. They obviously have some very skilled developers.

Wow . . .

Right as everyone is beginning to transition away from using Flash, the Flock team decide to create user tutorials that require Flash to view. {sarcasm} Really progressive, guys! {/sarcasm}

Very nice concept indeed.
Some shortcomings though. Flock is also a bit slow and the interface could get some improvements.
Pity too that there is no adblocking available, so I don't like using many websites. Like Yahoo: their ads are soooo annoying. I mean some advertising is ok. But for instance if the inbox is empty you get a gigantic ad instead. And generally they have 2 like-mad-flickering ads, one directly on top of the other, no space between them. That makes it really difficult to keep your eyes healthy, mine are really hurting now.

So the obvious question now that Safari 4 public beta is out is, are the developers going to change engines?

I have used flock loyally since it first came out but the sheer speed of Safari 4, even though it is not visually so inspiring, makes it a no brainer.

Hopefully they are revving up the new engine even as we speak!

I can pretty much tell you the answer to that question is no. You don't change rendering engines midstream. If the Flock developers had wanted to use the Webkit engine they would have used it from the beginning. The chose Mozilla's technology for a reason, it's extensibility, something Safari and Webkit lacks.

After more than 1 year of intensive use of Flock, I will go back to Firefox or Safari. Flock is full of features, yes, but there are too many features in my opinion. And with the latest releases Flock became more and more clumsy and buggy. Sites which are shown at cyberspeed in FF or Safari are not shown at all in Flock or open very slowly. Some downloads I started do not proceed, in FF or Safari the same downloads are finished within some minutes. Even deleting the cache, the history or cookies does not change anything. This all-in-one device suitable for every purpose will be killed by its own "overweight". It's a pity...

So far the new Flock 2.0 is quite impressive. If you're in to Web 2.0 websites, then Flock is a must have. If you're not, stick with Firefox and save the unnecessary childish remarks. Overall, this browsers feels very much like Firefox 3 most because the two are extensible and use the same gecko rendering engine. Flock's default UI might not before everyone but there are two that I really enjoy that are made especially for Flock; Dublin and MyBlue. Both are available at Flock.com

The one thing that needs immediate attention is that for some reason Flock 2.0 appears to be white or faded out in appearance. Leopard apps have a smooth metal look, not white which you saw in Tiger. The MyBlue theme seems to correct this but the default theme seems to have a background look such as when one app appears in front of the other. Other than this, Flock 2.0 is a great addition to the gecko based browsers. :)

What was once a lean clean browser is now a cluttered mess. That's a real shame.
