Personal Browser Usage Update

Ever since I last wrote about Opera and Chrome, some things have changed about my browsing habits. On Windows, I’ve gone from always using Flock to always using Opera. I just found out that Flock finally released version 2.0 because I wanted to check up on my facts before looking like a dork on my …

Flock keeps getting more and more useful!

At this rate, I’ll never be able to kick the Flock habit.  Ever since, as I blogged before, they fixed their problem with stuttering YouTube videos, I’ve been able to use Flock for my main Windows browser day-in and day-out.  Now they’ve added even more features!  First of all, I think it’s neat that they’ve …

A Quickie

Back when I reviewed an earlier version of Flock, one of my complaints was that it was impossible to watch Youtube because the video was always stuttering.  Well, the Flock programmers have fixed that bug and it’s now definitely usable to watch Youtube videos.  I’ll admit that I only watch, perhaps, 1 a month, but …

My History with Browsers Part 2: Opera

My excitement over Flock has faded a bit. It’s a bit bloated. I understand, because of the software involved in Flock’s features, why Flickr is so slow. However, Flickr is one of the sites I visit more often than any other, so I need it to go fast. Right now I have to load up …

My History with Browsers Part 1: A History Lesson of Sorts

At first I used Internet Explorer because we had a free trial of MSN.  Then we switched to MCI, who used Netscape (although you could also use IE) and I mostly used Netscape.  I think this was around Netscape 4 or 5.  I really liked Netscape A LOT and used it almost to the exclusivity …

Social Web Part 2: Mugshot

Mugshot is the website that continues to surprise me the more I use it.  At first it was just a website with an unusual purple theme.  Then it was the very frustrating site with the purple theme.  Now it just may be one of the most interesting and underrated sites of the year. In case …

How Flock has completely changed my browsing habits

Flock has completely changed how I interact with the so-called Social Web.  In my case, that means Facebook and Flickr.  Ever since I first started using Flock and received the help I needed to get the blogging to work, I’ve been using it every day.  In fact, that only thing that has kept me from …

Flock Blogging now works for me!

Many many thanks to Flock engineers Erwan Loisant, Mike Dosik, and Patricia Bacon.  They took time with me over the past few days to get my problem debugged and now categories worked.  Here are the details in case you find yourself in my situation. First of all, once they told me that it worked on …

Further Review of Flock 0.9

So I’m using Flock daily now for my web browsing to see how I like it. Since I don’t usually go to Facebook on my own, it’s nice to see the notifications within Flock. Thus, I’ve been more responsive to my Facebook private messages, a good thing since my second-cousin recently caught up with me …

Flock – A New Type of Browser

I’m writing this from flock, a new web browser which comes with a lot of built-in utitlities for the most popular web technologies including flickr and blogging. I’m writing this post from within flock’s blog utility. I’m not sure yet if this is a worthy feature or just a gimmick. I intend to try flock …
