Today, just in time for Earth Day, the first green browser breaks onto the scene. Maybe you've already heard of Flock, a social web browser that in effect, puts all your social networking sites under one roof (Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube, blogger, etc.). Powered by Mozilla Firefox and using a Yahoo search engine, the Flock Eco Edition (more editions are in the works) comes loaded with some of the top green content on the web -- and 10 percent of proceeds go to an eco cause selected by users. "This is a new way of thinking about using a browser," explains Flock vice president of marketing Dan Burkhart. "We are creating an out of the box experience -- gathering the best of the best." Users can drag and drop stories from TreeHugger, PlanetGreen, Think MTV, National Geographic, and Environmental News Network (ENN) to name a few onto contacts in social sites. Before the end of the year, aa poll will be posted on the site that will allow you to submit charitable organizations worthy of a windfall. A running tally will keep track of the top submissions. "The environment requires people to be informed," says Burkhart. "Collectively, this is how we can influence change." ::Flock Eco Edition Also see ::Mozilla Firefox Goes 'Organic' ::Black Google Saves Energy ::How to: Recycle Your Computer ::How To: Build a Green(er) ComputerImage top: Courtesy of The Seitch Blog.
