Flock

source:rakaz
There is a new browser in town. Imagine that somebody took the source code of our beloved Firefox and building a new browser around it. ...

Flock is a social browser that integrates with some well known webservices such as del.icio.us for bookmarks and tagging and Flickr for photo sharing. Additionally it lets you edit your weblog right from the browser.

Yes, remember I installed it, was unimpressed. Needed some sort of API to auto blog to FastBlogIt. It also stores your history even if you don't want it. All it did was aggregate blogs, tags and a few other things.

As you see I tried it last year. It worked for specific blog types but not ours. I made a Google type blog & it kinda worked. I'm sure it has evolved. I haven't tried it since. I don't think it will be around very long - M$ is incorporating all this stuff into their next browser.

Yep, you get are a good list of potential api when you start blogging with it.  I noticed that there is an atom api there ... that seems like the most obvious choice for us.

Won't be able to run the IE7 stuff till the next version of the os, apparently XP is insufficient.
