Flock 0.9.0.1 for Windows

Flock 0.9.0.1 for Windows
  • Expert Rating

    4.25 / 5

Pros

  • Integrates easily with leading Web 2.0 services, blog photos and video clips with one click

Cons

  • Packed interface needs a lot of screen real estate, supported services are not user-configurable

Bottom Line

This one-stop Web browser offers easy blogging and integration with Web services, but not all of its features are configurable.

Would you buy this?

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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
