Here is a nice look at the upcoming release of Flock's latest web browser: Cormorant
Following along with the bird theme, Flock has announced that their code name for the Cardinal successor (Cardinal is the current 0.7.x release) is Cormorant, a medium-to-large seabird. Originally, the next big release was supposed to be Danphe, however they’ve taken a step back to evaluate where they currently are, and where they’d like to be. They feel they have more work to do on Danphe, so they’ve decided upon an ”in-between” release which will be Cormorant. Right now, they’ve got a pre-release/preview available for download. Ryan and I spent the last hour checking it out and taking a bunch of screenshots… so.. here is our mini review (don’t forget that you can click the screenshots to view a larger image).
The screenshot below shows what the browser looks like right after downloading. Because it is considered a “social browser,” you’ll notice that at the top are links to MySpace and YouTube. Down at the bottom is a bar that can list featured media from either YouTube of Flickr.
