Flock + These Plugins = Best Browser Available

Flock Home

I’ve been testing and using flock for the past month now to see if it worth while sharing with my fantastic readers. Flock is pretty much a social browser that runs on the firefox 3 engine.

Step 1. Decide whether you want to stick flock on a USB drive and take it on the go. If you want portable edition click here. If you want the normal version click here.

Step 2. Choose and install your plugins below, I have collated some of the best and why they are good.


If you have ever done a big download and your net drops out, it can be frustrating to start it all over again. This download manager lets you pause and resume your downloads at will. It also features an advanced accelerator that increases speed up to 400% and it allows you to pause and resume downloads at any time.

Flash Block

This little plugin blocks all flash ads, but dont worry, if viewing a flash object just click the icon and it will start loading like normal. Good for slower internet connections and saving bandwidth.

Adblock Plus

The Best ad blocker in the business, blocks all those annoying little ads plus those good looking girls you see in facebook ads. With this and flash block those nice looking women will never be a temptation again.

Plugins for the nerds:

Web Developer

Develop Websites? Then this plugin is for you, it creates a toolbar that helps edit css and find those little gritty changes you need to make. So many features it will take you yonks to fully work them out.


Use IRC channels alot? Then this plugin is for you and means you dont need to run a seperate program.

If it turns out your not a fan of flock you can always use these plugins for your firefox3. Do you have any other plugins that you use? Let me know if i convert you to flock and how you find it.

  • I’ve been writing a plugin guide for Firefox on and off over the past few weeks. I might finish it soon.
