TechCrunch is at it again
, posting things about companies that the companies themselves aren't even aware of. This time, it was a report that the popular social browser Flock, which is currently built on Firefox, is switching to Chrome
. Not so fast, Flock says. TechCrunch updated their post with this comment from Flock CEO Shawn Hardin: "We haven't ceased development efforts on the Mozilla platform. Our upcoming release of Flock 2.1 is built on the Mozilla platform. Having said that, the browser space is heating up, and we've seen a variety of exciting technologies emerge over the last several months that are appealing."
A friend at Flock tells me that no final decisions have been made about Chrome. It looks like Flock's CEO isn't being dodgy when he says it's too early to comment; they really haven't made the final call yet. If Flock makes a decision, we'll be sure to let you know. For now, any speculation is just jumping the gun.
