Haven't heard of it before, but it looks interesting.
I like the fact that it's built on Mozilla technologies.
Looks like it uses Mozilla extensions, also.

The only problem I see, is the fact that it's still a Beta, which means it's still in the testing stages, not perfected for final release yet.
The Blog gives you more information on that.
If you don't mind testing new software, it might be worth a look.

I have tried Flock. I am not that impressed with it. There are a few business related web pages it does
not render properly. It does not do anything that more established browsers not in beta do not already do. I tried it for 30 days and ended up uninstalling it. Maybe after it's in a final release, I might give it another go. But there are already enough alternatives without the "unknown features" (read bugs). That I am really not interested in adding another browser to my stable of 7 at this time. Just my two cents on yet another browser that does not stand out in the crowded browser world.
