Flock: A New Firefox-based Browser

October 23rd, 2005 by Jerome Dahdah

Check out Flock, a new browser based on Firefox. This one should be especially interesting for bloggers.

Here are some of its new features (taken from Bart Decrem‘s Slashdot post):

  1. replaces old-school bookmarks with one-click social bookmarking to Del.icio.us
  2. tagging is there if you want to do two-click bookmarking and tag
  3. a new bookmarks manager with an integrated rss reader
  4. built in search engine that indexes every page you visit and has a Spotlight-style as-you-type UI
  5. keeps a list of the sites you visit most frequently
  6. multiple bookmarks toolbar (one for work, one for play etc.)
  7. finds feeds, lets you view them
  8. caches the feeds so you can read them on the train
  9. aggregated RSS view for all of your bookmarks folders
  10. integrated blog editor (support wordpress, movable type, blogger)
  11. one click ‘blog this’ feature (it does the blockquotes, citations and all that stuff for you)
  12. Flickr integration (drag and drop pix into blogs)
  13. shelf: a web scrapbook that helps you organize stuff you want to blog

Sounds good, and it looks sexy!
