Why you should use the “Flock” browser

Flock Browser - similar to firefox but So much cooler

I’ve recently started using the Flock Browser because it was recommended to me by one of the many SEO and Web monetization courses I have been doing over the past few months.

For those of you who haven’t heard of Flock, it is a browser that is based of the popular Firefox.

It was specifically created to make it so simple and easy for average users to access their Facebook, YouTube and various other social and web 2.0 services.

After using it for only 20 minutes I was hooked!

Why you should use Flock:

  • You can see all my friend’s facebook updates in a sidebar as they are updated (without being distracted from your work)
  • You can post to your blog directly from the browser without having to visit wordpress or many other Blogging services. (now a definite favourite feature)
  • You can receive your Twitter updates instantly
  • All your firefox extensions work seamlessly with Flock.
  • It’s just great…

I am sure there are many more features that I have probably not even tried, but will probably be lost without them in a few months.

I am at the point now where I have all my social sites open with flock, hidden in the System tray with PowerMenu, and have firefox running all my normal job sites.

Its strange sometimes that you think everything is fine, until you find out there is something much better!

The web without Flock for me is like Gmail without GoogleTalk notifier.
