flocklogoI can call my self a semi-geek as I use almost 6 browser on my machine at the same time. Flock happens to be the second choice after Firefox. I use flock because it’s not just a browser but it’s also a platform to unleash your social media needs. You can configure it with facebook, twitter and feeds to name a few. Let’s see how we can install flock on Ubuntu (jaunty jackalope).

You can do it in many ways but the easiest way is using a .deb file.

1. Download the flock .deb file from here.

2. All that is left now is double click the downloaded deb file (flock_2.5-1%7Egetdeb1_i386.deb) to install flock 2.5 on Ubuntu.

flockdeb

flock2

3. Once you have installed the browser you can find it under Application > Internet > Flock

flock Menu

You may choose to drag and drop it on your panel to make it easier to use.

    This is a crock. The website you are referring users to in order to procure the putative [read: absolutely MYTHICAL!] DEB package does not exist, and when you search the site for the file, the one you find that SAYS it’s for Ubuntu 9.10 DOESN’T WORK!!!
