I use Flock for all my feeds but am disappointed that I could not get my favorite extension CoLT. Tonight I had done a search on the Flock Extensions site and this what was displayed:

Please try another or just upload a Firefox extension to convert it so that it will work with Flock.

When you click the above link you will be taken to an upload utility where you can either upload the Firefox Extension XPI file or the URL for the XPI file you want to convert to Flock. The site does have this warning in very large text: This is under heavy development right now and may not work!

I am happy to report I was successfully able to get CoLT to convert over to Flock which will make copy and pasting complete (text & URL) links in either HTML or BBCode format so much easier. On the Flock Extensions Page, this is being promoted as a future feature:

Very soon you will be able to add your favorite extensions and we’ll convert them on the fly for you. Extensions written for other platforms can still be used in the Flock browser, but there is no guarantee that they will work correctly.
