Social web browser developer Flock Inc announced on Wednesday a complete redesign of its product, making it the first social web browser built on the Chromium open source platform.

According to the company, Flock is intended for active social media users and others who seek to better manage the large volume of information and relationships they interact with online. The new version enables Internet users to consume their social media and web content as it occurs, discover the best of the web through their friends and stay connected with anyone at any time while they browse.

The new browser enables users to create groups organised by people, topics and information. With Groups, users can 'Channel Surf' the web by switching the view of the scrolling sidebar between the conversations and information they are most interested in at any moment.

The new browser also reveals the What Your Friends Are Saying feature across multiple social networks that delivers personal, real-time search results across favourite bookmarks, RSS feeds, videos, friend status updates and shared content.

The company also announced that Google's web search is the new default in the browser.

The new Flock browser for Microsoft Windows is accessible now and free to download and use at An Apple Macintosh version will be available later in summer 2010.
