Stellar Technologies ( says that support for its Flock social web browser will be discontinued as of April 26.

“Since no further security updates will be provided to keep you safe on the web, we encourage all Flock users to upgrade to either Chrome or Firefox. Both are based on the same reliable technologies as Flock, and both are being actively maintained and improved,” says The Flock Team. “Also, each of these browsers has a broad selection of add-ons and extensions to customize and extend their capabilities.”

Since Chrome and Firefox both have very different rendering engines, I wonder what technologies the Flock group is speaking about? They also talk about the extensibility of those browsers, but they make no mention of Safari (WebKit like Chrome) and the fact that it is extensible with plug-ins.
