"Interesting..."

November 01, 2007  |  By MacSavers

 |  Version: Flock 1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
As a web designer, I always like to see how new browsers will work with my sites. Flock is an interesting browser with a pleasing interface. It's not the speediest browser, but it seems to be trying to attract people from the social networking angle. From that point of view, it's not a bad attempt. The speed will need to be addressed and it seems to have some issues with CSS files as includes from some servers. It seems to handle flash and other media fairly well. Overall, I give it a 3 out of 5.

"Useful as an extra app."

July 16, 2008  |  By sheepguy42

 |  Version: Flock 1.2.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
While I still do most of my general browsing in Safari (clean, fast, simple, elegant) I usually keep Flock open in the background. Why? Becauseâ??as another reviewer already mentionedâ??it is excellent at doing what it's meant to. Its integration with so many social sites (facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Blogger, and more...) is unsurpassed. Itsintegration with Yahoo Mail and Gmail is greatâ??though I prefer to check my Gmail using Apple's Mail. throw in the PicLens extension for mozilla-based browsers (it says for Firefox but works in Flock as well) and you have a social media (read "friends' pics posted online anywhere) powerhouse. I also love the built in blogging toolâ??while I really need to use it more, I love the fact that despite being free it works smoothly and uniformly with no less than 6 of the most popular free blogging sites. Is it perfect? No, but no one browser truly is. I'd like to see better integration with other software, especially iLife apps, iCal, Mail, and Address Book. I don't want to replace these with an all-in-one,I just want to be able to access their data as needed sometimes w/o opening or switching to them. I guess I'd also like the blogging tool to be turned into a full journal, but a) I suspect that I'd be better served with a separate app for that and b) I only really want this from Flock because it's posting mechanism works so well across all those blogging sites. If only one of the free journal apps could do that....

"Flock is a flocking piece of crap. Amazing since is..."

May 04, 2008  |  By blueskymining

 |  Version: Flock 1.1.2

Summary

...nothing more than a port of Firefox!
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
But the dweebs at Flock have managed to completely screw up a Firefox port by loading it with useless pork features and bloatscripts so that it is unreliable and the Sloooooooowest browser (both Mac and PC) around! It's EVEN worse than iCab (iCrap) and Opera. Stay away from this garbage browser, it's too frustrating to use and it just gobbles up but HD space and system resources when running (till it crashes - tested on 10 different Macs with 10.3.x thru 10.5.x)

If you want a very fast browser go Camino, if you want a great browser that you can customize go Firefox .... Safari?, go straight to the garbage can with Flock.

"Blazing fast"

April 08, 2008  |  By BoiseSpin

 |  Version: Flock 1.1.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Wow.
After reading a review in macworld, gave it a spin.
Pages that take a long time in both FF and Safari, took a fraction of the time with Flock.

GREAT job importing everything.

Looks like a new love has been found...

"OMG it STILL SUCKS! Slowest most unstable browser..."

March 08, 2008  |  By blueskymining

 |  Version: Flock 1.1

Summary

...of the last 5 years
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Hey Flock coder dudes, lose all the stupid useless features you seem to think makes this a coool browser and maybe it won't be the worlds slowest and most buggy browser. Launching is pittyful, launching any page is even worse, rending images is unbearable.

 |  Version: Flock 1.0.9

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
slow as molasses in january, as they say...and any Mac browser that doesn't support dragging a URL from the address bar to the Favorites/Bookmarks toolbar is too feature-deficient to be taken seriously.

"IMPORTANT! Don't update until you read this."

February 21, 2008  |  By 50ftQueenie

 |  Version: Flock 1.1 Beta

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is a BETA version of Flock 1.1, and will not use your browser profile from any previous version of Flock. This is a clean install. This means that when you install this build, you will not have your previous Flock favorites, feeds, or personal info. This info is not deleted, it's simply not accessed.

"The Swiss Army Knife for Web Surfing"

December 04, 2007  |  By MrMediocre

 |  Version: Flock 1.0.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is my ideal browser for tooling around and surfing the web. It may not be as quick as Safari, but the integrated features for blogging, using assorted social network sites and the media bar made this my default browser back in the RC stage. In addition, the RSS reader is fantastic, beating out standalone options like Vienna and Safari's integrated reader.

I do hope the speed and stability improve with time, and hope that the browser avoids adding onto and bogging down it's feature set until the current one is perfected. I look forward to it getting there.

Finally, this (1.0.2) update appears to have fixed the 404 issue it was having with versiontracker (I'm using it to type this) and the Facebook double "is" status message.
