Flockin' all over the world
- 15 Jun 06, 01:40 PM
Some months ago I wrote about, and filmed, the team developing a new web browser called Flock. I have been systematically beaten up by techno-geeks ever since, for being so naive as to report on a "son of Firefox" without reporting Firefox first; or, for buying too much of the hype around Web 2.0. Well today Flock is the number one search item on Technorati: reason being they have just announced the "public beta" release of it...
...I am viewing and writing this blog from Flock, not Internet Explorer. It is a bit difficult to get your head round, as it seems to instinctively take you to all the bits of the web you don't really understand if you are over 30 (Flickr, de.licio.us, RSS etc etc).
Anyway it's out there now. I can't get very excited about it as I am a content person, not a platforms person. I am going to play around with it and report back, if I survive the inevitable tsunami of flame that comes my way every time I mention it.
