Social browsing with Flock

Posted: April 8, 2008 in internet, Technology

If you’re into social networking sites, blogging and sharing stuff you find on the web, you know it can get crazy trying to keep track of it all. Which is why you might want to take a look at a browser you may not have heard of, called Flock. What makes Flock stand out from other browsers is that you can build direct links to things like your Facebook account, MyGoogle, My Yahoo, your blogs, Twitter, Flickr and so on – and makes sharing between them as easy and drag and drop right from a web page. You can also run news feeds and media from YouTube right in the browser as well as keep track of your networked buddies in handy sidebars. Importing bookmarks, cookies and other preferences from other browsers was a snap. If I have one criticism is that there seem to be so many bells and whistles that it can seem a little overwhelming and busy but once you’ve got the hang of it, it might just become your favourite browser. The much improved 1.1 version is out now.
