Developer Bart Decrem, who was instrumental in bringing the Firefox browser to market, has set out to build a next-generation browser, one he's promised will make better use of today's Web 2.0 features. The company he co-founded, Flock Inc.
of Mountain View, Calif., has introduced the 0.7 beta version of this browser. Flock (www.flock.com
) will offer a way to save bookmarks online so they can be accessed from anywhere and by anyone.
A search feature scans contents of the browser cache. The software also includes advanced news feed aggregation and shortcuts for cutting and pasting Web site text into blog entries.
