Flock – Social Browser
June 19, 2006
Just browsing the web n I found something quite interesting: Flock – The web browser for you and your friends. Open it's feature page and skim it a lil bit, it says Flock can do:
- drag n drop photo publishing
- blogging tool
- become ur own media mogul..
- and so on
ok, not really interested with the third feature, but the first and second makes me want to try it.
I download the installer (Beta1- ver.0.7 , 7.68 MB) here.
Currently only windows version available to download. Windows and Linux version available.
Install it, and instantly i discover this is so Firefox look-a-like. Open the About page and found "Mozilla/5.0" engine running. No wonder.
I successfully setup my blog account (hosted @wordpress.com) and flickr accound – Flock also supports other blogs hosted by typepad, movable type, livejournal, drupal, and blogger. It also support blogs that use moveable type, metaweblog, blogger and Atom APIs.
I started it's blogpost tool, pretty cool, u just write anything, n press publish, and viola..it's all done! The new post is published safe and sound. The same thing for the flickr photo uploader. And u can directly use it's photo widget to put images in the blogpost tool.
Here's some screenshot:

Last word: Flock is identical with Firefox, but for someone who blogs and use flickr alot..it'll surely helps. Flock = Firefox + Blogs API + Flickr API. Try it if you want to.
