Flock’s sake

If you were watching Newsnight this evening, you’ll have seen a classic bit of technojournalist gush over a ‘revolutionary’ new browser called Flock, that’s going to sweep away MSIE and is created by these extraordinary people called geeks who eat pizza and … oh, forget it.

Anyway, the free ad worked to the extent that I’m now sitting here using a beta of Flock and … er … it’s just another browser. Specifically just another browser based on Mozilla, like Firefox and Camino.

Except this one allows you to:

  1. post to your blog from the browser.
  2. share your bookmarks on del.icio.us.
  3. and…
  4. er…
  5. that’s it.

Comrades! On to the Winter Palace! Forward with the Revolution!
