Flock Bids its Farewell

Written on April 13, 2011 by Adam Eve

After providing its users with features that will make jaws drop, Flock is saying goodbye.

Flock, the web browser with loads of media sharing and social features in it, announced that it’s shutting down. Unfortunately, the web browser went out with a sigh, and the news has been greeted with a shrug.

Five or six years ago, Flock was born and people loved the web browser. Some of its technology was not trivial to build, and an HTML editor in a content management system was revolutionary back then. But things drastically changed after that. Maybe Flock was just too ahead of its time, or other web browsers in the market was just progressing slow.

If you're not convinced on switching from your current browser to Internet Explorer 9, then maybe the Microsoft browser's energy efficiency stats can change your mind. That's if you believe them.

Stretching its marketing muscle further, Microsoft continues on its mission to win your web browsing hearts by releasing a new table showing data on a category that never really crossed our minds: Energy efficiency. And in case you haven’t suspected the obvious, Internet Explorer 9 wins this round. But it’d be a surprise if it didn’t, considering that Microsoft is the one setting the parameters of the test.

Hit the break to see the table!

Flash-less Mozilla Firefox for Android Debuts in Android Market Today

Written on March 29, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

The quick red Mozilla Firefox jumped over the fence to Android's backyard.

In case you’re not fully satisfied with your Android browsers on your mobile devices, well Mozilla Firefox may (or may not) quench your thirst for some web browser goodness, as its final version launches to the Android Market today. Unfortunately, the browser won’t be coming with the Adobe Flash software. Strike one for Mozilla already, but let’s give the browser a chance, eh?

“For us, HTML5 and the open Web video standards are most important right now,” said Thomas Arend, Mozilla’s principal Product Manager. “Flash is a reality, though — I’m aware that it’s there and it’s going to be around for a while — so we’re definitely looking into it and will look into enabling Flash plugins in a future version.”

A Mission Only for Google Chrome: Kill the URL Bar

Written on February 21, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

1 person

There's no job too small or too large for the Google Chrome as it plans to eliminate another element in the grand scheme we call a web browser: the URL bar.

Google Chrome seems to be on its way to destroy the URL Bar. Yes, that bar where you type in the web address of the site you want to go to. Is it possible? To Google, ANYTHING is. But there’s still the question as to why they want to do it.

“Less is more,” that seems to be the trend these days in everything we do and also in web browsers as it allows the world to glide through the web with speed and ease. The Google Chrome surprisingly trails behind the Internet Explorer 9 in terms of application and viewable web. But Google is right on the case as they’re currently studying ways of making web surfing a much simpler experience, and they’ve got their eyes in killing the URL bar in their “compact navigation” model.

"The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices." ---Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software

Opera announced that they’ll be coming up with Sony TVs and Blu-ray players. The new Opera solution will be sporting HTML 5, OIPF and HbbTV support. However, Flash isn’t announced yet, but we’re wishing it will be included upon release.

“The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices,” said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. “Our ability to address key hybrid broadcast-broadband initiatives in numerous markets makes us a natural fit with Sony. By delivering both a global viewpoint and the necessary technology, we are able to stay on the cutting edge of the industry.”

Meanwhile, they didn’t include any other information about the devices which’ll be supporting Opera, but somehow we have a good guess that these devices are those presented during CES 2011.

C out the video from Opera after the skip.

A Minimalist Internet Explorer 9 That Reminds You of Chrome

Written on August 26, 2010 by Aiken Lewis

0 person

At the dawn of the ninth Explorer's season, a sneak peek flashed from the Russian Microsoft website of the look that rendered the browser a makeover, the Chrome way.

A screenshot posted on the site spilled Internet Explorer 9’s interface secret–Google’s Web browser features adopted into its beta version. Some might say Microsoft “aped” Chrome’s minimalist aesthetic, and it is a worthy opponent to emulate, to begin with.

Microsoft’s work seems to have been focused on trimming menus and buttons that are rather crowding the window. Shortcut icons for e-mailing, printing and RSS are obviously plucked, together with the “Page,” “Safety,” and “Tools” buttons. Taking littler space then in the current version are the reload and stop-loading buttons, and Bookmarks are gone. Where could all have these snippets gone?

With their absence from the main window, or transfer to other menus, the screen now looks much tidier and roomy enough to display webpages–the browser’s purpose in the first place.

The screenshot has been pulled since speculations arose, but all of these will be snipped as well when the IE9 beta rolls out on September 15.
