The next generation blogging-enabled browser: Flock

If you’ve been following this blog regularly, you’d know I’m a keen Mozilla FireFox user, judging by the posts in the category: Browsers.

And my copy of FireFox has probably seen it’s fair share of abuse.

  • With about 10 plugins and 400 bookmarks, it’s now chugging along.
  • Downloads take about 10 seconds to initiate.
  • WordPress (especially PHP processing) is a little buggy. I’ve lost a number of good posts already…

So you might say things are a little….slow?

slow

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not soley dependent on Firefox.

By necessity, I use 3 browsers:

  • Internet Explorer: because about 50% of blog visitors use that browser (and it displays differently from FireFox at times)
  • FireFox: what I really like are the extensions available, especially this SEO plugin I recently installed.
  • And now Flock!

How’s Flock (currently still in beta) different?

It’s intended to be a blogging-friendly Mozilla-based browser.

Here’s some info from Flock.com:

Flock

It’s a fast browser and I’ve used it for filing my blog posts a number of times.

It also supports extensions and are compatible with some FireFox ones.

According to the extensions page, it states:
Very soon you will be able to add your favorite extensions and we’ll convert them on the fly for you. Extensions written for other platforms can still be used in the Flock browser, but there is no guarantee that they will work correctly.

Here’re some of the more interesting extensions I’ve found:

Adds a menu and a toolbar with various web developer tools.

Enables Flock, Firefox, Mozilla Suite, Netscape and Thunderbird to handle single and massive (“all” and “selection”) downloads using the most popular external download managers for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and FreeBSD (dozens currently supported, see Extension’s Home Page for details). FlashGot offers also a Build Gallery functionality which helps to synthetize full media galleries in one page, from serial contents originally scattered on several pages, for easy and fast “download all”.

Performancing for Flock is a full featured blog editor that sits right within Flock. Features include:

  • Works with all major blog software
  • Easy WYSIWYG Editing
  • Trackback, Technorati and Del.icio.us support Once installed, just hit F8 or click the little pencil icon at the bottom right of your browser window to bring up the blog editor and easily post to your WordPress, MovableType or Blogger blogs.

I know a number of bloggers who use performancing, though because of the nature of my tag plugins using the native WP editor works better for me.

Makes every word on the web interactive for References, Search, Blog, Tag, Translate, Map look-up, Shopping, Email & more all in a single click.

The Technorati topbar lets you to search Technorati for conversations about blogs or the links you find in them. Technorati is a search engine that keeps track of what is going on in the blogosphere — the world of weblogs. See the Flock wiki for more information

As you’re revving up your browser to go into overdrive, do install a sensible number of plugins (5-10 would be ideal. Having 100 installed might cripple it!)

You can get Flock from the Flock download page. A new beta 0.7.6 has just been released (which prompted this post!)
Anyone else using Flock? How’ve you found it?
