Flock, the social web browser that was acquired by Zynga back in January, 2011, is now shutting down.
April 26th, 2011 is the day when Flock support will be discontinued and company already suggests users to download an alternative web browser, such as: Firefox or Google Chrome.
Support for Flock browsers will be discontinued as of April 26th, 2011. We would like to thank our loyal users around the world for their support, and we encourage the Flock community to migrate in the coming weeks to one of the recommended web browsers listed below.
Why is Flock shutting down?
I am really excited to let you know that Microsoft has learned its lesson and is already working on the next version of Internet Explorer.
In fact, you can already download IE10 Platform Preview from the following page.

Some time ago, TomsHardware has published a nice list of benchmark results for the top 5 web browsers. Unfortunately, they did not test the final version of Firefox 4.
Well, this is no longer the case as the most recent tests now include the following:
Internet Explorer 9
Google Chrome 10
With the release of Internet Explorer 9 and Firefox 4, it’s time to find out, how those releases affected major web browsers market share for the month of March.
Despite the launch of IE9, Microsoft’s web browser continues the downtrend. This time it has decreased by 0.85 point, from 56.77% to 55.92%.

Even though it’s April Fools Day, there has been some interesting information floating around about the upcoming (possibly IE10) web browser from Microsoft called Immersive Browser.
Before you dismiss this info as yet another joke, here is what you need to know: MS has uploaded the Windows 8 M2 (Milestone 2) build to its partners on Microsoft Connect a couple of days ago. Now obviously, once you share something with quite a few people, there is a high probability of a leak and OS screenshots (and that’s exactly what happened).
