Flock Browser.

I have been playing around with Flock and it is looks like it will be a really good browser. It is still in the development stage but you can download it and try it out for yourself. One of the cool things I found is you can save and tag your favorites and they are saved online at http://del.icio.us/ you can access them from anywhere and they are no longer married to your browser on your machine. Also anyone with an account from del.icio.us can view your favorites.

With the intergrated blog editor you can update your blog(does not work with all blogging platmforms) from the browser. Also the blog editor has a Flickr toolbar so you can access your photos on your flickr account right from the blog editor. Below is a screen shot of the blog editor with the Flickr toolbar:

You should check out their list, 13 things you can do with Flock (and how to do them)

here is #11 from their list:

#Blog This!
You can easily blog interesting web content with Flock, in just a few clicks.


1. Highlight a passage on a web page that you would like to blog about.
2. Right-click that selection and choose Blog This.
3. The blog editor opens with that selection already inserted. Not only that, the selection is properly formatted as a Blockquote and appropriate citation is included.

Other ways to Blog This:

1. Open the View menu and choose Topbars and then Blog Topbar.
2. Highlight a text passage and drag it to the box labeled "Drag stuff to blog it!"

Or you can use the Shelf (see The Shelf, below).
