trying out the flock browser

i’ve kept an eye on the FLOCK internet browser for a while now- here’s what wikipedia says about it:

Flock is a web browser heavily based upon Mozilla Firefox. Flock’s creators call it a “social browser”, due to its ability to interact with popular social networkingweb services. Such web services include Flickr, Facebook, YouTube, Del.icio.us, Technorati, and various popular blogging and news aggregation services.

i’ve tried it now and then and seen a few people i know swear by it {like james}. i haven’t had any good experiences with it previously, and i’m not a firefox fanboy. {in fact i just realized that i haven’t used firefox in the 3 months since i got the new iMac…. but does camino count?} i’ve been really happy with apple’s Safari on my new iMac, except for the recent RSS bugginess in Safari, it’s been really fast and snappy.
But i’m gonna try this new Flock browser for a while – in fact i’m blogging from the flock blog post feature now… if anyone has some amazing Flock tips, drop me a line… i’ll keep ya posted.

{note –  i lasted a week and then ditched it}

radiohead “in rainbows” this is awesome. i’m not a big dorky fan of radiohead, i do have all their albums and really dig a lot of their songs, but the awesome part is the fact that you can set your own price for the download of the album. really.that is awesome.inspiring.seriously inspiring.

snap preview running

Snap Preview!

i noticed the tastey little browser technology called “snap preview” first over at techcrunch- and it was pretty colours and shiney lights.
so of course i’ve added it to this blog!

so now if you hover any link on my blog a little speech bubble style doo-dad should just pop up and show you what’s there!

i like it.
so neerrrr.
