Flock browser just released…sort of cool but is there a need for yet another borwser, even a Web2.0 browser?

Web2.0 now has its own browser called Flock. One neat feature is Flock allows users to blog from the browser. In fact, I’m writing this post from Flock. Here is the “official” description of Flock:

Flock is based on the open source Mozilla code base. All of our modifications to Mozilla code are released under the MPL, GPL and LGPL licenses. 100% of the Flock-created code to date is released under the GPL license. Going forward, we may incorporate some proprietary code from partners, or even created in-house, but our plan is for the vast majority if not all of our code to be open source for the foreseeable future.

I’ll play around with it a bit more before I pass judgement, but so far Flock seems a bit slower than Firefox…and speed is the most important thing for me…it is nice to be able to sync to del.icio.us and blog on the fly…but I don’t know if I’m going to switch from Firefox and IE.
