Flock - I don't think so!

I just tried the new Flock browser. Other than some improvements, some cosmetic changes and some extra features it is just FireFox. The extra features the Flock browser has can be easily achieved through extensions for FireFox. If no one decides to write the extensions for it, I am pretty sure that after Flock's debut the FireFox development team will include similar features.

The only feature that I really find worthwhile is the blogging interface. It provides the user with the ability to post and edit any blog through the browser without having to browse to that site and log into a user control panel. The nice thing is that you can use it with almost any blogging software. Something like that is definitely worth including in FireFox.

Scary crash(s).

On my way home today I saw a car crash, which I personally think was horrific. It was on the opposite side, and although I was not able to see it up close, because the median is about 30 or 40 feet wide, with trees and bushes planted all over it, seeing the damage to the car was enough. It was a taxi cab, a Lincoln Crown Victoria. The WHOLE front of it was smashed. I mean that car was one third of what it used to be. I do not know how fast was the driver going or what he hit, but after seeing the results it is scary to think what the out come might have been.
