Firefox 3 Beta 1 and Flock

The path to a new browser:

  1. Installed Firefox 3
  2. Found most plugins I needed didn’t work (yes its in beta I should be patient)
  3. Read a post about memory issues in Firefox generally (which I felt constantly) and how Flock was not (no longer?) just an “addon” to Firefox but a complete replacement. Supposedly it integrated new social platforms (Facebook, Flickr, delicious, twitter) and solved the memory issues with Firefox. The latter especially was a sweeping statement but he went on to say that he was wrong about Flock.
  4. So seeing as I had the same opinion of Flock when I tried it at launch I figured maybe I should give it a try
  5. Downloaded.
  6. Installed.
  7. Love it – didn’t need several plugins and I only had to add IETab, mouse gestures and FireFTP. I await to see the memory improvements but I love the media streams.
