Hello .:Mac:.,

If you use Flock, you can easily port extensions from FF to Flock, with this tool:

The Flock use less resources than Firefox?

Firefox have some bugs that aren't fixed to avoid these issues, and since Flock also use Gecko engine, I would like to know that...

I strongly believe (and somehow feel inside, taking the fact that someone gave them a million bucks, into consideration) that this Flock browser will be one of the greatest browsers out there. Biggest competition to IE7 in my humble opinion (even IE7 is still under heavy development, but so far it looks really promising). Firefox will have to step back (well not that simply, because we all can witness how many those "Firefox yellers" are out there... nothing that comes out is better than Firefox in their opinion, but they never mention it's their humble opinion  ;) ). Of course, we all remember Netscape and its everlasting fight with IE and Microsoft...

With that said, I really think Flock will become a wonderful browser. Wonderful bunch of young developers, fresh minds, ready to do something good, and maybe most important, with unbelievable deep pockets (now when they got all that money). This will be a simple BOOM.

The fact is, use what makes you happy and do not force anyone to think like you think... there is nothing like ultimate browser, nor ultimate knowledge. People are individuals and they need to act and feel like that, otherwise we all will became insensitive robots... oh well, maybe sometimes we would feel a need to change our oil from time to time  ;D

My current main Mozilla alternaitve browser is as quick as notepad and doesn't affect on my system but its language is terribly minor.  :(

How about trying Pocket Flock or Portable Fifefox, instead?

I'm waiting for the next version of Maxthon and IE, but until that I'm trying other browsers...

Thanks

Hi ReVaN,

But you will be a portable apps man too in the foreseeable future. I see it here before me, Miha with a portable Flock browser on his Flash Disk, together with his portable Avast AV product and special Gamer's portable Firewall. Press: enter my friend,

Just a little update about "flock" that I am using. Started using it on Oct 23, 2005. Using it as my MAIN browser. Un-installed firefox version 1.5 as it was slower than their version 1.07 which I now have gone back to. Flock has never crashed or let me down yet. I use it first, then Firefox version 1.07 and then if I have to one of the I.E. engine clones. Thanks again Polonus for letting me know of this browser when you did.  :)

Hi Bob3160 and Neal63,

Well I have PocketFlock now too, and ported all my add-ons.
It is great to be able to take Flock wherever I find a USB port.

Thanks you folks,

I'd like you to let us know when you are writing about future next time even if you can envision future in front of you.  :D

Bob seems to have his office in flash meida...  Don't let your office stolen or lose it, bob.  ;)

Hello Umath,

Well you see, and Bob showed it to us. The future is already here. Well with PocketFlock in my memory stick, it is waiting for PocketAvast. Say you arrive at a comp, you certainly know your Avast is pristine. It opens up a lot of extra possibilities: the best bootscan you can ask for. So don't laugh at Bob and me, we feel where the antivirus and firewalling is going...portable partition.
And it is not strange. In the old days Bob and I had a pencil behind the ear and know we have a flash drive round our neck.

Damian you're right it's just i have to go out and buy myself a usb drive(believe it or not i still don't have it).I see how a
portable AV program could be usefull yes and a portable firewall sounds great also but come to think of it i wouldn't mind putting all my programs on there(portable Photoshop so i could work on any machine).

Hi ReVaN,

It is not the cost to have this extra partition, my friend. I use USB 2.0 My Flash, it is for Data and it is for Security. Ask your boss to subscribe for a computer magazine, and he will get one for you "za darmo" or gratis, for free.  ;D I have got mine from St. Nicolaas (Dec. 5th). Gonna have a look if this ghostwall fw can be ported as a portable apps. Look here for your Bitorrents apps:

Have a nice day,
