Flock continues to impress
It has been quite a while since I last used Flock, and I had almost forgotten about it inspite of being impressed by it around this time last year. Today, I happened to chance upon Scoble’s latest post and there was a mention about a demo of Flock by one of its co-founders that was recorded by Scoble. I decided to download and put Flock through its paces.
I am happy to report that Flock has made impressive strides from the early days and it really does make the four common tasks (“fads” as per some) of the new age a whizz, viz., social bookmarking, photo sharing, rss feed reading, and of course, blogging, as you can make out from this picture:

Though I am impressed, the very fact that the latest version of Flock is based on Mozilla Firefox 1.x — and not 2.x that is in advanced Beta and that has tonnes of new features which beats every other browser out there — is reason enough for me to continue to stick to Firefox for the time being. For blogging I might use the Flock’s built in editor or continue to use the Performancing extension for Firefox. But I must admit that the Flock’s blog editor (using which I am posting this) is certainly pretty user friendly, though it can do with a few more toolbar buttons to adjust the font, its size, color etc. That is where Performancing scores as of now.
Thanks for reading thus far. Have a great weekend ahead.
