Official Google Blog: Get in sync

Official Google Blog: Get in sync

If you are using multiple computers, operating systems and live within a browser this really can make your life easy. This extension has made me to transit to Linux very easy.

Google Browser Sync provides more than just a simple method of syncing bookmarks. It syncs all your Firefox data -- bookmarks, cookies, passwords, history, tabs, and windows. So, not only are your bookmarks kept in sync, but you can even close a Firefox session with tabs and windows open, and reopen the same session on another PC.

Syncing occurs automatically, and data is stored on Google's servers, which makes it available even when individual clients are switched off. To use Google Browser Sync, you must have a Google account. If you already use Gmail, Google Talk, or any other Google service, you already have one. If not, it is a simple matter to create one at the Google Account page.

Because it's a Firefox extension, Google Browser Sync runs inside the Firefox code, and is totally operating-system-independent. Wherever Firefox runs, so does the extension.

Installing a Firefox extension is simple; easy-to-follow instructions are provided on the extension's Web page
