Flock: Sporting New Feathers

Ok, so maybe it’s not THAT new, but it’s new to me because I haven’t played with Flock since version 0.0001 beta. Apparently, I got Joey hooked on Digsby. Not sure why he likes it so much. Now I have another thing to introduce to him.

Joey, meet Flock: the social web browser.


Not sure why I decided to have another looksy, but I’m glad I did. Essentially, it’s a tricked out version of Firefox that gives you quick access to most of your social networks like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, webmail, Picasa, you name it, it’s there.

There’s an integrated RSS reader and blog publisher too (although I don’t like to use it because I can’t, or haven’t figured out how to, upload images onto my server with that tool).

Many of the Firefox extensions seem to work, which is the only reason why I’m willing to give it a test drive.

Is anyone else using it or giving it a go?

Yeah, I've been playing with it. It's actually not bad. The interface is pretty standard Mozilla underpinnings, which means it's a tick less stable on my Mac than I'd like. It can get cluttered…but for the most part, it's capacity to present RSS and social network data is great. It works well. 'Course, it doesn't interface with MySpace, but I despise MySpace, so that works out just fine.

Talk to me, Goose.
