I downloaded Flock, the “Social Browser”, last night and have been playing with it a bit to see how it works. In terms of being a “social” browser, it definitely is that, with the blogging, photo uploading, RSS feeds and other social network plug-ins incorporated directly in to the browser.
On the other hand, I haven’t really found anything that I don’t already have, either through a Firefox extension, or with Windows Live Writer. I’m not going to use it as my main browser, it’s not as good as Firefox for that.
It might make for a decent second browser option though. One that has the handful of social networking sites I keep track of as the home tabs, that I can pop open when I want to take a quick look at those sites, and leave open to keep an eye on things like Twitter, while still doing the main browsing in Firefox without worrying about those sites interfering with that.
Of course, when I’m doing that, it really does help to have dual monitors. 🙂
