Flock 1.0 is now available for anyone who cares

According to a blog post from CEO Shawn Hardin, the Flock Social Web Browser was officially released as a 1.0 product over the weekend.  

Built using the Mozilla core, Flock should feel somewhat similar for those of you who are familiar with Firefox.  

What exactly is a social web browser?  Flock "incorporates all your friends across numerous popular social services (Facebook, Flickr, YouTube and Twitter)."  What does that mean in English?  Simply put, Flock is designed so users will be able to social networking services through integrated features built directly into Flock.

The Flock development crew has added a few tweaks to try and make this whole social web browsing thing even better for the end user -- something I am only sort of liking.  Along with a built-in blog editor -- which works but could be better -- the Flock Media Bar is a pretty neat feature that lets you quickly preview videos and photos.

"We hear from our 1.0 beta users every day that this product has changed the way they are engaging with and experiencing the Web. The most frequently used adjective describing this version of Flock is ‘addictive’," Hardin said in his blog entry.  "We take that as a real compliment, and a strong vote that Flock is onto something very special."

The 10MB Flock 1.0 download is available for free by clicking here.

Have any of you tested the Flock web browser?  If you  are a Flock user, I would be very interested in hearing some of your thoughts.
