Aye, it's quite nice! \o/

A very long way from replacing Opera for me (too many features I love in Opera all-in-one) but I've already got a few shortcuts added to my desktop for things like Gmail :)

Eek, is this the start of some new browser wars? Just checked if EG's discussing it and it's hit 8 pages, there. 8 browser-obsessed pages.

Let me know when there's a winner :)

Only just downloaded it after an evening at the footie and so far I'm quite impressed, I would like to know how to get my bookmarks down the side of the screen if anyone knows, my 22" widescreen doesn't really need so much empty space at the sides! :-)

That's because Flock is a poofy browser ;p

It's Firefox 3 in a different wrapper so I'd have thought importing favourites would have been straightforward

Probably just looking for certain EXE names and missed that one. Try copying the EXE and renaming it to whatever FF calls itself, perhaps?

That's how Opera makes sure it gets the FF plugins :)

Firefox 3 does everything I want really. Just had a quick go on it and I don't like all these hidden toolbars - I find them a pain.

Hmmm just dling it on the shitty PC sat next to my mac. Fucking annoyed that there's no Mac version from day one, particularly cheeky considering it uses core bits from Safari.

Love the logo though. A heady cocktail of Windows colours mixed with Pokemon.

So, is "searching for a secret gift" going to be the new euphemism? ;)

Heh looks that way.

"But Officer, I was just 'searching for a secret gift'"

There's a nice CSS inspector built in which looks very much like one in a Firefox Extension...

Oh, and there's already a spellchecker.

I thought Firefox 2 (which I'm still on) already did the whole "Google search and address bar all in one" thing.

Loving it so far. I've got a really, really old laptop which would literally take 30 seconds to open another tab and this is taking seconds.

Can't wait for the plug-ins and mods to come out too.

Whooo. Just discovered Google Synch and assigning your login to Chrome. My favourites now follow me wherever I am. What an awesome feature.

it is rather useful, especially since I use the portable apps version on a USB stick a lot of the time :)

It works brilliantly on an Android phone with ICS. Although does mean you're stuck with the stock browser which surprisingly sucks goats.
