Flock adds MySpace support to Web browser

Flock this week added MySpace support to its Mozilla-based social Web browser.

Flock Inc. this week added MySpace support to its Mozilla-based social Web browser that allows users to monitor what is happening on their favorite social networks while they surf the Web.

Built with the newly released MySpace Developer Platform, the updated browser will allow users to surf the Web with their MySpace friends via constant updates on all their actions within the social network, Flock said.

"Our users want to be connected with their favorite friends across all the sites they visit," said Shawn Hardin, CEO of Flock, in a statement. "MySpace has been the most frequently requested social networking service by our users, and we are excited to be able to offer it to the Flock community."

For example, users can be informed within the browser when friends from MySpace or other supported social networks -- like YouTube, Photobucket and Flickr -- post new photos or videos or when a user has new messages from friends on a social network.

Mashable blogger Kristen Nicole noted that the move is similar to Flock's current support of Facebook.

"Items from across the web, such as images or videos, can be dragged and dropped on to a friend you have in a existing social network, and that item is then shared with your friend via the channels allotted by that social network," she added. "As Flock also supports other major media-sharing sites like YouTube and Photobucket, the added MySpace support will bring in a higher level of integrated interaction for members of the social network."

But she added that several Firefox add-ons provide the same features to Flock, which means that the battle to make Flock a viable replacement for other browsers is likely to be a long one.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
