In the latest Windows Update, Microsoft prompts users of Internet Explorer using Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 to make an “important choice” of choosing their web browser. The move is part of a settlement with the European Commission.
Two weeks ago, we gave you the heads up that Flock 2.0 beta, which is powered by Firefox 3’s technology, will be soon released for public. And yesterday, the Flock team announced about the availability of the first beta version of Flock 2 for download. Till now, Flock has been running on Firefox 2’s code, but with the release of Firefox 3 later today, Flock 2.0 will soon be released, which will be powered with Firefox 3’s code.
Flock, after weeks of beta testing, has finally released the version 1.2 of its popular social web-browser. Flock is known for integrating some of the most popular web 2.0 social networking services. Like we saw in in the beta version, the final version also has Digg and Pownce support, making Flock more social than it really was! Another announcement that Flock made for everyone is that they will soon be releasing the first beta of Flock 2.0, which will be based on Firefox 3.
Within the coming weeks Flock will release itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first beta of Flock 2.0, which incorporates the Mozilla technology that powers Firefox 3. So get ready to have all of the latest performance (memory management), security and feature enhancements found in the latest Firefox 3 release along with the unique user experience innovations only delivered by the Flock browser.
Whenever, I want to use social networking sites, I always use Flock for that purpose. I’ve all my information like passwords, saved forms related to such sites saved in Flock. After all, it’s a Social Web Browser. Yesterday, when I opened Facebook, I noticed that the usual sidebar that always opened while browsing Facebook, did not open.
At first I thought, that may be because of my slow PC, but later I came to know from the official blog, that it was actually a problem at their end. Facebook changed some code in their site yesterday, and due to that, all previous releases of Flock now have this problem, that the Facebook People sidebar does not open.
They got aware of the problem as soon as it occurred, and they have rolled out an update as Flock 1.1.4. It is recommended to all Flock users to update your browser. It will be available through Automatic Update later tonight.
Download Flock 1.1.4 (10.6 MB)
The Problem Still Persists?
It has been reported that for some people, the problem is still there. Even after upgrading. Well, for those people, Flock has given some instructions to follow. Follow them carefully:
- Select the Tools->Options menu, or, if on a mac, Flock->Preferences
- From that dialog, select the Advanced pane
- Inside this pane choose the “Update” tab
- Click on the “Force Service Updates” button
- Restart Flock
- Enjoy your Facebook people again!
I hope you Flock People sidebar for Facebook is now up and running.
