Flock Rocks!

So I've been trying to get back into the swing of blogging this week but it has been a miserable attempt on my part I must admit!

I've been doing a lot of research for Web 2.0 and I have come to a revelation about the entire movement: I knew nothing at the start of this whole endeavor!

Considering that Web 2.0 is basically a movement from hardware/software based applications to completely online services and applications, I was completely in the dark. I just knew that I liked where the movement was going and the services that were being offered.

I utilize many of them now and it is becoming almost a hassle to remember passwords and update everything at once so I've been trying to find a tool that will combine all of my accounts into one easy to use, FREE, application and I've found it!

Flock is a Firefox- based web browser that allows me to login to all of my account ranging from Blogger, Flickr, Wordpress, del.ic.ious, YouTube and more and keeps me logged in. It has a great upload feature for pictures on Photobucket or Flickr, a built in blog editor for whatever/all account(s) you use and the feed reader is just awesome! Click and drag and the feed is in your reader!

I must say that I absolutely love this browser/cache of awesomeness tool that is Flock. The only downside is a lack of Add-ons in the Firefox respect. Keep in mind that the add-ons that I use are completely encompassed within Flock!

Please give this one a try and let me know your thoughts!

Personally, I think it's awesome!

I'm a huge Flock fan.

So far, I've gotten most of the Firefox extensions I use added to Flock (just by installing the Firefox versions like normal). There are a few I use a lot that currently arent' compatible. Hopefully that will be fixed soon.
