    1. […] Robin posted a testing script for the latest tinderbox builds of Flock. I haven’t followed it exactly and haven’t noted things that have worked (except for one unexpected and delightful case), which is probably a useful thing to do, but I have identified a number of bugs (one sort of bad, but the rest very minor) and found myself wanting a few little features added. New features are of course not on the map for the release we’re hoping to spin today, and I suspect that most of these bugs won’t get touched yet, but here they go, for our QA folk to review if/as desired.

    3. They need to arrange the Favourites: why do you have to open a new tab in order to see all your bookmarks? also: why favourites? isn’t bookmarks a better word? 🙂

    4. There has been a bit of thought about “bookmarks” vs. “favorites”

      One of the problems about “bookmarks” is that as a word it implies something that is static. Things like rss feeds, and even many web locations are not static things you are not returning to the same place. You are going back to a place that you “like.”

      Why a new tab for managing “favorites” the first answer is that it is less annoying than a new window. Hopefully favorites management is not somehting you have to do a lot of and you primay way of dealing with it is either as small sets of them as a topbar or via search, either from the manager or from the search box in the upper right hand corner.

    5. about the bookmarks, I prefer a dropdown menu than a whole new tab…it’s better 🙂
