I been trying flock out. I have to say that I like it. It is just like firefox, in the difference that it is set up for social sites - And when I say social, I mean practically all of them ranging from facebook to yahoo! mail.

It is the same basic structure as Firefox with the ability to use all firefox extensions with it, and the firefox plugins with it. You can go to the firefox extensions site and install them from there. Just install them like you would firefox.

You can also use it as a feed reader. And one of my favorite things about it is that you can set a password for it to where it won't open unless the right one is in. So your privacy and security is good in the reasons of letting it save your passwords for the various sites you get on.
