what the flock!


So what if you can get the Firefox 3 Beta? Mikko introduced me to my new favorite browser: Flock!

At first glance, it looks like a heavily-skinned Firefox (and it partly is, Flock being built on-top of the Mozilla engine,) but the greatness lies in the nifty little add-ons. It has support for, ehem, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, YouTube, Photobucket, Piczo, Blogger, Blogsome, LiveJournal, Typepad, WordPress.com, Xanga, del.icio.us and Magnolia. (I know, some of our other favorite sites still aren’t supported)

What does this mean? It means that whenever you have Flock open, you’re one click away from opening a sidebar that shows updates in your subscribed services, or, you could open the blog editor to OMNIPOST in your blogs, or, you could upload/browse photos from your Photobucket, — and, my absolute favorite — the star button next to the address box gives you the option of SIMULTANEOUSLY saving a link in your computer AND your del.icio.us account! (That’s less clicks for when updating all the supported sites!)

And since its Mozilla, Firefox add-ons are compatible. (You just have to re-install ’em again.) This makes most of my toolbar bookmark buttons redundant. 🙂

Plus, I added the Multiply and StumbleUpon toolbars, which adds 2 more sites that my Flock supports. Get it while it’s hot! (I’m a sucker for neat GUIs … and rounded edges. Yum!)

    I’ve known flock since.. 2006.. And yes, I actually used it initially for the ease of blogging (like what I see you doing for this post… hahahah) PLUS it has Photobucket integration.. way neato!

    But there are things that it didn’t do… so I went back to Firefox, and now Camino… but I’ve been switching between the three.. OH and Safari too.. so I’ve been switching from time to time. HAHA!

    Not a good way if you are keeping bookmarks. HAHAHAHAH!!!

    Agreed. I don’t like the fact that, you can simultaneously bookmark links in your PC / del.icio.us, it won’t ask you where you’d want that bookmark in your computer.

    And yeah, why did I doubt Firefox, if I don’t even drop by Facebook everyday? … 130+ ignored notifications and counting…

    Hello, I believe your web site could be having
    internet browser compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your
    website in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening
    in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, great website!
