Following on from yesterday's announcement
, Netscape users eager to give Flock a try do not have to start with a blank slate. The team at Flock
has created a simple migration path for people who want to use Flock and have access to their profile information, bookmarks, etc, from their old Netscape profiles.
This migration path will be available in the Flock v1.06 release, scheduled for early next week. Here is a look at how the migration works: this first image is a dialog box that a person would see when installing Flock - notice the "Netscape" option here under "Import Settings and Data".
Once the "Netscape" profile, etc, has been imported, the remainder of the Flock install proceeds as usual. If you already have Flock installed, and also want to benefit from this simple migration, you can import Netscape settings (shown here on Mac OS X):
Thanks to the hard work of the Flock team, with these import options the process of moving from Netscape to Flock becomes painless. Keep in mind that this will only work with Netscape Navigator 9 profiles.
