I stumbled across a few sites talking about a new browser "Flock". It's based on Firefox which I prefer over IE but is hyped as a "Social Web Browser". Knowing nothing else I downloaded it to try out (I'm totally a 'give it a go' then read the manual type of learner!).
Once you log into sites like Facebook, Twitter and of course Flickr it shows your friends in a sidebar and then will show their media in a bar across the top of the screen. I've just had a brief playaround but so far it looks great and really works for how I use the internet.
You can also type blog posts direct from the browser and upload to typepad/wordpress/blogger etc. It links to del.icio.us and other 'social network' sites as well.
I'll keep using it I think. Shayne can keep using Firefox and then FLock can be setup just how I like it!
Want to give it a try:
