Ever since KikuyuMoja reminded me that Flock was out, I’ve been having a lot of fun. In fact, maybe too much fun.
If you didn’t know already, Flock is a new web browser. Some would say that there are too many web browsers out there already. Lord knows many web designers are sick of having to ensure that their pages are optimized for Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari – much less Flock now.
Anyway, what I’ve been enjoying is customizing Flock with the many extensions available. If you’re familiar with Firefox, you’ll recognize the usual suspects: Greasmonkey, Web Developer, GMail Notifier, StumbleUpon, etc… The direct tie in with Del.icio.us is an interesting feature – I’m still trying to come to grips with the fact that my favorites are viewable by everyone.
Flock is in Beta right now, it has some problems – like when you have a number of tabs open (like I normally do) then it gets a little slow. I’m sure that a full release will have most of the bugs worked out though. Since it’s being built on the Mozilla platform, that should make for easier bug fixes. Give it a whirl, see if you like it.
UPDATE: I came across a great review of Flock by another blogger, which is well worth checking out. Visit The Lonely Canadian to read it.
