Flock again

I have tried Flock since their version 0.4.xx click this you'll know.

The latest version is 0.9 grab a download here.    I have just tested this again for 2 days.    Surprisingly  Flock does better than Firefox in terms of memory leak.    Normally I test the browser with Netvibes and meebo running for few hours and watch the grow of memory usage.     Flock uses around 120Mb with 4/5 tabs whereas Firefox or Safari 3 beta could be using near 200Mb.

The bit that I still don't like is the blog editor which doesn't support categories.    The insertion of tags isn't fit for UTW plugin as well.    I hope in due course it'll work with WP2.3 built-in tagging feature.

  1. Glad to hear that you're enjoying Flock 0.9! We've certainly come a long way since 0.4. :)

    Regarding categories: Flock should be grabbing your categories. Shoot some details about the bug to my address below and I will try to get it sorted out.

    Regarding UTW: since this is something installed in the webware version of your wordpress. It's probably not built into the API so we cannot detect it. It's possible that the UTW folks could build this in.

    Flock on,
