First Flock

I’ve been having a bit of a play around with Flock, which has improved immensely since I first tried it out late last year. The integration with both Flickr and del.icio.us is excellent, the blogging editor is now very usable, and so on.

The only thing that stops be switching to it is that the Google Notebook extension doesn’t yet work with it – and as I use that every day, it’s a deal-breaker for me. Once it works, I’ll switch full-time.

EDIT: In what’s my first bit of hacking for some time, I managed to get Google Notebook plug in working perfectly. I took the installed extension folder from my Firefox folder (this will be in Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/XXXXX/extensions), and put it into the equivalent one for Flock. I then edited the “install.rdf” file to include the following:

<!– Flock –>

<em:targetApplication>

<Description>

<em:id>{a463f10c-3994-11da-9945-000d60ca027b}</em:id>

<em:minVersion>0.4</em:minVersion>

<em:maxVersion>0.8</em:maxVersion>

</Description>

</em:targetApplication>

Save this, launch Flock, and it works fine – no bugs so far.
