I’ve just come to discover Flock a new social web browser which is based on the Firefox technology. It allows you to have all those apps you don’t really want to have so easily accesible at hand: Flickr, Facebook, Picassa, RSS feeds, Del.icio.us, Twitter, etc etc etc. The can all be opened within your browser window and, heres the coolest (for me at least) you can post directly to your own blog through the web interface. It has a bunch other cool features that I’m just starting to check out.
This is the Beta release (it’s been very recently launched) but it still handles very well. This will be my first blog post directly through it so I’ll let you know how that worked out.
>> The picture uploading I ended up doing via the WordPress CMS. Flock will upload it (apparently) through whatever other service you have – it was going to upload via Facebook for me – which I don’t really want to do. It would be neato to have an extension that allows you to upload images directly from your computer without going through other services.
The tags are also added through Technorati, which create a whole new format for the tags below the posting. It’s not bad at all, it’s just not how I have it all formatted. In all, I think I’ll use it for direct text only posts. Anything with pictures I’ll keep doing via WordPress. Very cool though.
