A few years ago, the FLOCK browser hit the streets. Based on Mozilla Firefox, it offered many unique features that were loved by many until the Flock team, switched to a Chromium base, and ditched many of those features, and finally ditched the whole project.
Now, among those many initial features, one of my favourites was the offered ability to upload images at the click of a button to several image hosting sites. Not only was uploading simple, but you could also crop an image on the fly, before resizing it and uploading it (all done from within a very minimalistic nifty feature of the browser – the cropping would always be done before the resizing, and the resizing before uploading).
My question is, is there any Firefox addon that comes even remotely close to offering this ability?
I know that there are several other ways I can accomplish this, but they all involve either opening the image in an image editor first, or uploading my 6+MB image files to a website offering such function, both solutions are none too elegant for my liking.
Meanwhile FLOCK still works, but based on version 3 of Firefox feels otherwise rather clumsy. I know that they have released the source code for it, and wonder if anyone may be tweaking it right now to republish an updated version of it, or to create a Firefox extension.
Anyone any ideas? I’ll likely keep using Flock for this purpose until a better solution is found, and recommend anyone who isn’t familiar with it to give it a try, but make sure you don’t use any version above 2.6, as later Chrome based versions did not offer this ability.
