now that’s soemthing new…shud try it out
thanks for the heads up on this one arpit…

I have tried flock each time the roll out a new release somehow I keep going back to FireFox.

Hi, sorry to be rude but I been e-mailing you about how to put a header graphic in your sandpress theme and haven’t gotten a response. Would be great if you can teach me how through my e-mail address from this comment e-mail address or leaving a comment here. Thank you!

Sounds great but there is no “plugins” like for Firefox right ? That is why I use it… All these add-ons…

@2 yeah same with me. I don’t really know why but it’s probably something to do with the fact that I like browsers like Firefox that doesn’t come with a lot of crap that I don’t use. Sure instant upload to photobucket is a nice feature but then there are some that I’ll never use.

@4 It does support extensions aka. “plugins” ;) It’s based on Firefox, remember that.

Reply to Arpit @2 – It is the same with me. I keep going back to Firefox. I think this is because Flock has a little more trickier user interface than Firefox and we are all used to the simple and easy to use interface.

Reply to Fran6 @4 – There are plugins for Flock but no too many. But I’m sure that this will expand in the future.

Reply to David @3 – Have you been emailing me or Arpit? Because I’m Michael, not Arpit.

@David I am sorry I didn’t reply to your mail. I get like 10-15 support questions, since its a free theme I expect people to find the solution themselves. I usually reply back if I think the answer is obvious or simple. When I get time I’ll see if I can reply to you. Meanwhile Could you please try the WordPress.org forum.

Is ok, I kind of figured it out. Thanks for the reply though!

@Arpit:
I found Flock’s link on Punnen’s blog and have been using it side-by-side FF since then. Although I don’t really use any flock specific features, it feels good to run two FFs running side-by-side :)

@Bipin 3~ Upadhyay – Interesting, why is it good to run 2 firefox side by side?

@Michael:
Well, because I am into web security and prefer to separate casual sites from personal sites (to prevent the dangers of XSS, CSRF blah blah).
I hope my answer was satisfactory :)

@ Bipin 3~ Upadhyay – Fair enough
