I was interested because I have spent considerable time trying to learn the art of including photos on blogs.
Adding photos can be daunting. There's the sizing issue and the copy wrapping issue that sometimes can take longer to resolve than the post itself.
She recommended --sharing that she did work for Flock-- that they should start using Flock as their browser. Given that I am not a techie and that I just converted to FireFox from IE in 2006, I had never heard about Flock. And, if you are, like I was, of the mindset that a browser, is a browser , is a browser...then I encourage you to take a look at flock.

The Internet is supposed to be interactive, right? It's not just about being a passive watcher of Web sites, but about sharing your input, as well. The Flock browser is an attempt to bring some of the Web 2.0-style concepts right to the application that gives you a view of the interweb. Built on top of FireFox, Flock incorporates "mashups"—the hip buzzword for web service integration—with social bookmarks (with del.icio.us and Shadows), photo sharing (with Flickr and Photobucket), and blogging—with tools built into the browser for posting to your blog. In fact, it's this integration on which Flock's creators intend to build their business model, cutting deals with other web services.
Based on Firefox it does have some dandy features like allowing you to drag and drop photos from your desktop to their photobucket uploader and then a strip of your photos (that black band at the top of the screen shot) is displayed in the browser so you can just drop and drag the photos from your photbucket onto your post. Very Cool. It magically does all the html coding thing for you. I'm sure it does a ton more that's all I've tried so far.
Setup is easy and Flock will take all of the settings from Firefox, including page history and cookies. This makes the transition the most painless of all browser upgrades, although this will not help those moving from Internet Explorer or Opera. The interface is similar to most browsers, although the most recent browsing history is revealed by right-clicking on the Back button rather than there being a discrete menu. It does feel a little hidden, but is convenient once discovered. On a more favourable note, it is possible to add icons for the blogging, photo and news tools. A search box in the toolbar is nothing new, but the extra twist from Flock is that it searches dynamically as text is entered. The results vary depending on the words but it is a much faster way of searching. Flock is an ideal tool for anyone who wants to record their web experiences on a blog. Simply select an area of text or even an image, and then select the Blog This option. An editor appears with both a Wysiwyg editor and a source editor. It is compatible with Blogger, Typepad and other popular blogging tools. You can see some demo posts at http://ano pensource.wordpress.com.
