Flock 3 Beta drops Firefox, switches to Chromium

Flock is an award winning multi-platform browser recognized by integrating services from multiple sites "social" as MySpace, Facebook, Blogger, Digg, Flickr, GMail, YouTube and Twitter directly into your user interface. Until its last version 2.6 was based on Firefox, but with announcement of first beta of its next version 3 also revealed that from now on will be based on Chromium, the open source project behind Google Chrome browser.

Can not find any explanation about radical change, but Shawn Hardin, Flock CEO, said in his blog that new version of its browser and is "incredibly fast" and first addition of Chrome, to be built on Chromium project work. Flock 3 Beta also change your default search engine by Google and, not least, should be compatible with most of growing collection of extensions for Chrome.

Flock is another high profile project rather than to leave Chromium Firefox: Previously I had done Jolicloud, the increasingly attractive netbooks optimized distribution based on Debian and Ubuntu. A trend that will continue in future?
