Flock,基于firefox的新一代浏览器

除了基于ie的浏览器之外现在还有很多基于firefox的浏览器,比如我以前多次提过songbird,今天在网上看到这篇浏览器评测的文章,发现其中介绍的Flock我还没有用过,就马上去下载了。

这里是浏览器评测中对于Flock的评价。

Flock is the newest and perhaps the most exciting browser on the market today. This Firefox-based browser has taken the concept of browsing to the next level by radically integrating support for web services. For example, stock browser feature bookmarks have been replaced in Flock by integration with del.icio.us. Flock also features support for online photo sharing sites like Flickr and Photobucket.

Flock comes with a built-in Blog editor, which supports many blogging services including WordPress, Blogger and MovableType. There is also a built-in RSS reader, which is one of the best RSS readers on the market in our opinion. The innovation goes beyond the service integration, since Flock also includes interesting new UI elements like TopBar - which is an improved search box and scratch area for storing web snippets.

Pros: del.icio.us and Flickr integrations, built in blog editor, RSS reader, cool UI
Cons: Cloned Firefox code base, making it more work to make compatible add-ons.
Faceoff bottom line: Great productivity browser for web 2.0

根据我的使用感觉就是,Flock的功能的确很强大,集成了相册,书签,Feed浏览,Blogging等各种功能(again……not support blogger beta= =),能够导入flickrdel.icio.us,界面也很清爽漂亮,同时继承了firefox的很多优秀功能,但是(总是有个但是的不是么)虽然他也能安装插件,但并不兼容很多firefox的插件,同时自己提供的插件数量也很少。所以对于一些用firefox用的很熟练的人来说未必有什么吸引力,相比较其实是媒体播放器的songbird来说又欠缺专一——当然对于浏览器新手来说,它已经集成了强大的功能了,如果感兴趣可以安装一个看看。
