Addicted to the Brave New Web's feeds, streams, tags, pics and flicks? For a simple, consolidated window to the interactive Web, try the free Flock browser, which comes preconfigured for creating and consuming RSS feeds, shared photos, and other Web 2.0 fare - just enter your existing accounts' user names and passwords.
Flock is based on Firefox, and Firefox users will like the familiarity of Flock's menus, sidebars, and tabbed layout. Once you log in to one of the media sharing accounts and a blogging service, you can create with just one click a blog post that includes photos and videos; or, you can upload batches of pics using an included photo uploader. Flock saves bookmarks locally by default, but lets you use Del.icio.us as well so you can maintain just one set.
Web junkies, however, will quickly note Flock's major drawbacks: its limited choice of supported services and the inability to change the contents of its My World default home page. You could use Firefox add-ons (most of which are compatible with Flock) to access unsupported services, but people who are constantly seeking out the latest and greatest extensions, toolbars, aggregators and portals will probably continue to roll their own interactive Web interfaces.
