Flock On Ubuntu Reviewed

Software

I have not taken a close look at Flock for some time, mainly because it felt like their focus was too much on picture clipping and the like. But after taking a look at the 0.9.1.3 release, anyone who does blogging or writing for a living is doing themselves a huge disservice by not using this browser - seriously.

Installation and First Impressions. In my case, I was installing the browser on an Ubuntu box, so I was asked to download a compressed folder to extract it. From there, everything I needed was in the master Flock folder, which was awesome. So I created a shortcut onto my desktop and opened the browser for the first time.

As expected, the Firefox importing process started, although I was a bit miffed that it did so without prompting me. No matter, though. From there it brought me to something located at about:myworld called logically enough "My World."

There, I was greeted with fantastic RSS feed management, my existing favorites (yet in an easy to read format) and of course, my favorite media...more on that later.
