Social Browser Flock Goes 2.0

Mozilla powered social web browser, Flock has released a new beta version of Flock 2.0 for early adopters and bug hunters. So far, Flock was using Firefox 2’s code under the hood, so it didn’t include all the performance and security improvements featured in Firefox 3, which is due for release tomorrow. Flock 2.0 uses Firefox 3’s latest Gecko 1.9 rendering engine, which promises better performance and smaller memory footprint. It also incorporates Firefox 3’s favorite manager and the nifty “awesome bar”, which auto-completes based on your browsing history. The new download manager can resume downloads after restart.

For the most part, Flock 2.0 retains the same look and feel of Flock 1.2, except for the Media Bar and People Sidebar, which have been slightly polished to make things go more intuitive. If you seriously crave for performance improvements, they you should certainly download a copy of Flock 2.0 and give it a try.
