The social browser Flock is officially closed today. The sophisticated browser will be discontinued as of April 26th, 2011 and recommending their existing users migrate to other web browsers as soon as possible.
According to TechCrunch:
Flock originated on the Mozilla platform but then switched over to Chromium in 2010. At its height it had 10 million users but then fell by the wayside just as the better funded RockMelt was emerging in the same super niche and perhaps unwarranted market.
Why the sophisticated browser like Flock is finally in the deadpool? Or people don’t need a dedicated browser for their social network activities? Since people prefer using mobile device to connect with their friends and family, do they need a social browser for mobile instead?
Tell me what you think.
