Flock Browser Shutting Down On April 26

Back in January 2011, Zynga hired the team behind the Flock social browser for the talent. On April 26th, support for the Flock browser will end. Flock started off on the Mozilla platform, but ended up switching over to Chromium. At its peak, Flock had about 10 million users. Below is the message that Flock is sharing with their users:

“Support for Flock browsers will be discontinued as of April 26th, 2011. We would like to thank our loyal users around the world for their support, and we encourage the Flock community to migrate in the coming weeks to one of the recommended web browsers listed below.

Our Recommendations

Since no further security updates will be provided to keep you safe on the web, we encourage all Flock users to upgrade to one of the two browsers listed below. Both are based on the same reliable technologies as Flock, and both are being actively maintained and improved. Also, each of the following browsers has a broad selection of add-ons and extensions to customize and extend their capabilities.”
