This is definitely worth checking out. And instead of going into much detail I’ll just say that I’ve shut down FireFox. I’m not saying I won’t be firing it up again, but it will be awhile. Do you blog? Do you use Flickr? I’m betting you do. And if you do, you need to spend a few minutes with Flock.
Here are some Flock links:

If I am not wrong this “browser” is making the rounds again now that they have a stable code base.
From my initial understanding, it tries to solve some problems which may or may not be a problem for some. Using Del to sink all your bookmarks. I just use the sync bookmark’s ext in firefox. Blogging from a browser. This puzzle’s me because all blogs are online so you have to connect to the web somehow. Seems like you’re replacing one gui for another. As for the Flick connection, I don’t use it because I don’t have a space or bandwidth problem on my own web site. Plus when it comes to pics, I’d hate to loose them all to a site which I technically have no control over. At least if my host’s server goes down or something they will have a backup of my entire site. If Flick goes under tomorrow, I wonder where everyone’s picture will go?
I have downloaded the latest build and will have a look but my initial ‘feelings’ about it will once again fit into my mantra; use what works best for you.
Thanks for the heads up though.
I’m not so sure this would be all that cool to me. What exactly does it do that makes it all that great. All I see are buzzwords. Is there some way it associates my flickr account with my blog and my delicious bookmarks when someone else is browsing through one of the above sites?
I’ll be posting a follow-up to this post later this week, but I’ll give you guys a quick idea what’s gonna be in there.
1. I like how Flock works with MovableType.
2. I like how Flock works with Flickr
3. I like how Flock works with del.icio.us
4. I like how Flock has all this without the need to download and install an extension.
5. To get the above in FireFox I had to download and install extensions.
6. FireFox runs/ran very slow for me. Flock is fast.
