Sync your browser settings June 8, 2006 12:29 pm

Do you leap between computers? A bookmark in Firefox one day at work and a bookmark the next day on the wife’s computer? Remember being at a website but don’t know which computer you were using? Google introduces another tool. Google’s Browser Sync ends your frustrations by keeping all browser information between multiple computers the same. It even claims to remember your open tabs!

Google Browser Sync for Firefox is an extension that continuously synchronizes your browser settings – including bookmarks, history, persistent cookies, and saved passwords – across your computers. It also allows you to restore open tabs and windows across different machines and browser sessions.

Give into Google. Resistence is futile!

Personally I have been using del.icio.us for my bookmarking for this reason. Keeps my bookmarks handy regardless of whether at home or work, or which computer I am on… or what browser I am using (The one drawback to the Google version). Yahoo’s MyWeb 2.0 (Beta) which is based on del.icio.us can also do this, but I am not sold on Yahoo! MyWeb 2.0 yet as it is still a bit rough around the edges. True, I can not save cookies, or histories across this way. But I wouldn’t want that “out there” anyway.

I was slow to catch the del.icio.us bandwagon but I’m starting to get it.
