Editors' Review

+

There's a lot to like in this beta release of Flock 1.0, if you're into social networking. Built on Firefox, it's designed to make interfacing with social networking sites extremely easy.

The browser loads pages well, but the Quick Search dialog box doesn't like it when you switch search engines, it just opens them in a new browser. Most, but not all, regular Firefox extensions work, too.

Flock's social network savvy sidebar is the reason to get this browser. Nine buttons at the top of the collapsible sidebar make accessing any of your social networking or frequently used Web sites easier than Twittering what you had for breakfast. Each button either helps you get your message out faster, like dragging-and-dropping photos into Flickr, or helps you read your friends' messages quicker, like the integrated RSS feed reader.

The People button turns the sidebar into a nifty way to track all your social networking accounts. Your avatar is displayed on the left, while the right contains links for new messages and new comments. The bottom holds the links to upload new media when applicable and a hot link to open or close your media stream.

There are also hot links to most major blogging sites, and if you choose to configure it for your own self-published blog, Flock guides you through the process. Even though it's resource-heavy, Flock is the way to go if Twittering, Facebooking, or YouTubing is how you spend most of your online time.

"10 minutes test"

November 26, 2007  |  By edubrn

 |  Version: Flock 1.0.1

Pros

i like the retro look of it and it seems pretty simple enough for people to navigate their way around. it does feel like it is browsing faster that IE and Modzilla but i'm not sure if it true or just a trick in my mind definitely score good marks in book

Cons

i was expecting little bit of originality but in general this is just Modzilla do-over

"This is Terrible!"

November 26, 2007  |  By schighway101

 |  Version: Flock 1.0.1

Pros

Nothing

Cons

I don't trust it for one thing, and I'm having to un-install it. un-install leaves a lot behind, having to use system restore to finish the job. I would NOT mess with this at all, junk!

"One the rise"

November 21, 2007  |  By NanaBaakan

 |  Version: Flock 1.0.1

Pros

This software is easy to use and seems very compatible with Windows XP. It far out weight Internet Explorer in functionality. Nice feature, transports passwords from firefox browser. My search has slowed down a bit for a new browser. Sorry to say that Firefox was crashing too much for my comfort so I made the switch.

Cons

Not to many add ons or plugins. While it does appear self sufficient, it would be nice to be able to customize it a little bit more. Would like a CSS editor like firebug.
