Flock

So I'm trying this new browser, called Flock. I tried 1.0 before and wasn't terribly impressed. The 2.0 version seems to have worked out a lot of the kinks. It's a browser that is designed around managing web 2.0 sites. You can keep little sidebars of facebook, myspace, twitter, etc. You can drag photos from a media pane that reads content from your photobucket, picasa, flickr or similar sites.
It manages gmail, yahoo mail and others. Everything is integrated. It looks pretty cool. I'm testing the blog post editor interface. As a test of graphic compatibility, I'm pulling a photo from the media pane. This is a tree that fell across the driveway last night. It was about 80 feet tall and 43 inches around at the base.
