San Francisco – The developers of Flock, the social Web browser software application acquired
by social games publisher Zynga in January, will end support for their flagship
browser later this month.
The Flock team "is now working to assist Zynga
in achieving their goal of building the most fun, social game available to
anyone, anytime — on any platform," reads a note on Flock.com.
"Since no further security updates will be provided to keep you safe on
the web, we encourage all Flock users to upgrade to [Firefox or Chrome]. Both are
based on the same reliable technologies as Flock, and both are being actively
maintained and improved."
Launched in 2007, Flock had raised over $28
million in funding before being acquired by Zynga.
