Flock On Ubuntu Reviewed

Filed under
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.

    It offers a convenient, KF5 and Qt5-based GUI coupled with a QML image view to browse, view, and download images hosted in two of the most famous Danbooru boards (konachan.com and yande.re).
  • A KMail Breakthrough.
    This tells the story of how I finally managed a successful transfer of email data from KMail version 1.13.6 to version 4.11.5. It is a non-technical essay exploring the obstacles I encountered, my options, and the methods I used to achieve my aim. It was written partly to give the information, but also with the hope that readers will both enjoy and be amused by the story of the "battle of KMail" that was ultimately won against "incredible odds". Links to the earlier articles discussing problems with KMail 4x are given at the end.
  • [GSoC] Kdev-Embedded, Debugging and programming embedded systems
    The actual embedded system word depends on closed-source IDEs and libraries, with high monetary value and deprecated functionalities. Programmers that would like to use ARM based boards without paying for an IDE will have problems setting up such development ambient and synchronized toolkits. The main idea of this project is to provide a plugin integrated with KDevelop to help the debugging and programming process of embedded systems like AVR, ARM and x86 based boards.
