Flock, the Firefox-based browser with a social flavor, has been awarded a Webby, one of the best reputed Internet awards, in the Social Networking category.
This year marked the 12th annual Webby Awards ceremony. They received over 10,000 nominations from more than 60 countries worldwide. The Webbys have long been recognized as a very special acknowledgement of the companies that are leading in key areas of excellence and innovation. Past Webby Award winners have included: Amazon.com, eBay, Yahoo!, iTunes, Google, NPR, Salon Magazine, Evite, Meetup, Wikipedia, Flickr, PBS, and The Onion.
The Webbies will be awarded on June 10th as part of Internet Week New York 2008.
Flock social browser integrates smoothly with several social networking sites including Flickr, Facebook, and Picasa, and other web services including Gmail and Yahoo! Mail. Everything you need for your blogging activities are just at the tip of your fingertips. You don’t have to open other applications to get your job done.
To celebrate Earth’s Day, Flock released an Eco Edition that comes bundled with a few ecology related bookmarks and feeds and a new green theme. If you’re a fan of the green movement, this theme will knock your socks off.
I take this opportunity to tip my hat to the Flock’s Team for doing a superb job developing the best and only social web browser in the Blogosphere. Congratulations!
