Firefox Sync Add-on

Link: Firefox Sync Add-on

Mozilla has come out with Firefox Sync, a browser add-on that allows for syncing an entire Firefox profile (history, bookmarks, passwords, and open tabs) across multiple computers. According to their site this will be a standard feature in Firefox v4, but until Version 4 gets out of Beta this is a great solution.

In the past, I have used Xmarks for the same purpose but wasn’t fully pleased with some of their recent decisions (for example, site rankings and “search enhancing”).  On the positive side, though, I do like that they support cross-browser syncing.

It will be interesting to see how well it is adopted, especially by the more security/privacy paranoid. I think it’s a great addition, though, to an already great browser.
