I found a new browser for people who like to interact socially on the Internet. It uses Firefox as its base, but it adds features like tagging, posting pictures to Flickr, and posting blog entries that make them first-class activities in the browser, itself. So far I'm enjoying the experience.
I'm still trying to figure out how to integrate it into my old ways. The "shelf" is a cool idea, but I'm not sure how to put it to good use. The Blog Post window is really nice. I'm typing this in Flock's Blog Post window, and it's the only thing I've found that supports HTML paragraphs properly.
The only annoyance is that I couldn't get my favorite Firefox extension to work. It's called Tab Mix Plus (TMP). I didn't realize how great it is until I couldn't use it anymore. I hope the author can make it work soon. Someone has an online install-file converter that makes Firefox extensions compatible with Flock. Most of the converted extensions work, but the one I care about doesn't.
I take that back. The other annoyance is that posting the actual blog entry is failing. It was working a couple of days ago, so hopefully it's my blog provider.
