Everyone needs a reason. In my case, my geeky nature should have been enough, but to try on the illegitimate love child of Firefox would take more than just curiosity. It would take a lot of reasons. Yesterday, I found those reasons.
Edrei's Reasons For Trying Out Flock:
- It works exactly like Firefox (duh).
- It has a blogging system that works with WordPress and WordPress.com built directly into it which I am now blogging on to prove my point.
- I can get another WordPress.com account for free.
- I found out that I can use all the extensions that I previously used with Firefox on my Flock using this nifty application called Flocker.
- It appears to use up less system resources than Firefox (which could be purely coincidental).
- It looks good.
However that doesn't mean I'm going to jump tracks and switch from Firefox anytime soon because with the good comes the bad…which I also found here.
Edrei's Reasons To Stay With Firefox:
- The release version is called Developer's Preview…so it's extremely buggy.
- Seriously…it's really really buggy.
- I kid you not, it is very very buggy.
- They don't have minimilistic themes.
So the only reason why you would want to try out Flock is because you're a geek who doesn't mind contributing the the development of Flock by reporting the bugs and letting the developer's fix. Other than that, if you're not a geek, there is absolutely no reason why you should try out Flock for now, though there is a pretty good chance you would have a better reason to try it out in the future. So keep a look out for it…because with what it has the potential to be, this love-child is going to seriously rock your world.
