Firefox Sync plugin



Google has released a new plugin for firefox that synchronizes various settings from one pc to another making use of a google account. Essentially, it saves certain preferences from your browser to your Google account, then when the browser is launched again it retrieves any changes from the Google Account. This sounds like a great solution for people trying to keep bookmarks synced across multiple pcs. I wonder if it could track what extensions are installed and make sure you have the same set of extensions on all pcs?


Of course, there are questions about it…. will Google target ads towards my bookmarks? etc…. but I can guarantee that I’m going to try the extension out anyway.

Also, it appears that the Google toolbar for Firefox is no longer a beta product…

I think the extension framework is really the main reason that firefox is THE browser to beat in the next few years.

There’s more coverage of the plugin here and the official download page here from Google. I’ve installed on one browser now and am interested to test. It sounds as though it can synchronize the session as well (what tabs are open) which might make it VERY useful for me.
