Flock Browser - The Social Web Browser

Flock Browser - The Social Web Browser

Flock is my latest tool for enhancing my experience on the web. I spend hours and hours on the Internet everyday and this is a great way tool for managing the different social sites that I find myself using.

The browser is based on the Mozilla Firefox code and is similar in the most important ways (e.g. installing extensions, keyboard shortcuts, general settings), but it is better. I find myself wanting to do more with Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter. Of course, it doesn't integrate with LinkedIn, because from what I can tell, no one does. This may end up making LinkedIn irrelevant (not because of Flock, but because it doesn't integrate with other social sites - a post for another day).

Flock has all of the tools needed for an Internet life today; there is a blogging interface, drag and drop image uploading of photos, and sharing of media by dragging to contacts in the sidebar.

The below video is a test for uploading media from Flock to the blog post (all I did was drag the video into the window and it was automatically embedded).
