Back in early November, we reported the launch of RockMelt – the Chrome powered social web browser.
This week brings news of a big competitor – Flock, version 3.5.

The new version of Flock, ‘Flock 3.5’ sees a number of improvements including added functionality and increased speed. The major improvement is that Flock is now based off of Chromium 7, an upgrade from Flock 3.0’s Chromium 5 roots.
Flock’s Mac version is also now based on Chromium; the previous version ran off of Gecko – which is what FireFox runs on.
