Thought I’d give Flock a shot after a friend recommended trying it out for doing Flickr photo uploads. First of all, its an interesting little browser. I haven’t used it a ton yet – this is my second task at hand – creating a new blog post. The Flickr upload was, I have to say, pretty outstanding. All the Flickr uploaders I have used (bear in mind I refuse to use iPhoto) have all had some stupid flaw — the one I hate the most being either the inability or the utter confusion of figuring out how to upload a batch of photos such that the ordering from oldest to newest shows up correctly once uploaded. Kudos to Flock for getting that spot on. Not only that, but if you drop a batch of photos in the uploader, and then drop a separate batch in, it drops the last batch in so that it uploads to show up as the latest in your Flickr stream. Finally, someone got this right; I was on the verge of learning Objective-C or looking into the ability to produce an Apollo app myself for doing this correctly.

The picture that you are looking of Kurillin looking like a crazed grey lion was uploaded in Flock, and showed up in the Flock flickr bar. I then opened the blog editor, rolled over the photo, and dragged the photo small version icon to the blog post and there ya go, flickr photo for free. Of course, I then had to click the source button in the blog editor and tweak the photo to left align, but hey, I’m not complaining. I am a little displeased that I can’t put a “more” article break right here though…

All in all it seems like a pretty nice little “social” browser so far — perfect for the tired geek who gets home and just wants to upload some photos and blog a bit. Oh, and I believe it supports Firefox extensions. I’m also hoping that it doesn’t spin itself into a memory glutted frenzy and crash (ahem Firefox).
