Flock Revisited

Standard

Last October, I blogged about the availability of the first Flock Developer Preview. After several months of silence, the Flock team just unveiled the first Public Beta (0.7) of Flock.

With the new release, Flock’s also inveiled a new site design (Nice work, Mr. Veloso.) What sets Flock apart from other browsers is the inclusion of “social” web services within the browser. The tight integration with del.icio.us and flickr and blogging are pretty sweet.

My initial impression of Flock was that it was a nice browser – and the social aspects of it definitely set it apart from Firefox and Internet Explorer – but I’m not sure how well the general public will take it. I’m not sure how I feel now.

Because it’s been quite some time since I last used Flock, I’ve decided to give Flock another try. We’ll see how it works out…

  1. Just downloaded it to help pass the time of the day. Seems pretty cool. I will have to continue to play with it some, but the integrated Flickr upload and organizer is great in its self. Seeing that it is only Beta, I assume that the sluggishness will go away with time. Thanks for pointing this new browser tech out. Great post!

  3. I’m not I’m ready to replace Firefox with Flock just yet, but it does seem pretty cool. I can definitely see many of these features being incorporated into future browser releases.
