Flock’s automatic Flickr detector.

Filed under: Browsers, Flock, Open Source, Photos, Web Apps — Hogg @ 7:05 pm

I’ve been using Flock as my primary browser my primary browser in Windows since the recent beta came out. (Be sure you update to version 0.7.1, by the way.)

I discovered a very cool feature today. When Flock sees that there is a photo hosted on Flickr, it pops up a little icon. Clicking on the icon brings up that users photo stream in the topbar. Although I am not a Flickr user I think this is an amazing feature. It would be nice though to see some other services supported, like BubbleShare. But we can’t have everything.

Update: it seems like this feature doesn’t work on the Linux version. In fact, it seems like a lot of the features on the Windows version don’t work in Linux (bookmark manager, blogging, toolbar, etc.). I wish they wouldn’t say that version 0.7.1 is available for Linux when it’s really version 0.4.8 or whatever.
