Flock continues to impress

with 2 comments

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.

  2. Hello Will,

    Thanks so much for the comment. Good to know that you guys are planning to move on to FF2.0. Let us just hope that going forward, the gap between FF N.0 and Flock X.0 (based on FF N.0) will diminish. Thanks for all your hard work on Flock. My wife just loves it, and it is her primary browser @ home.

    Regards,
    Proto
