Google Browser Sync – Take Your Browser Settings Anywhere

7 06 2007

If you work on multiple machines, and are anything like me – you hate re-entering your password for websites that require authorization. I have most of my passwords saved in Firefox on my home laptop, but when I visit those same sites at work I am prompted – which annoys me. Here is where Google Browser Sync comes to the rescue:

“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.”

Now you can synchronize all of your browser settings with Google, and if all of your machines are running this Firefox extension, you can surf hassle free. Even bookmarks are saved, so no need to export from one machine to another. This extension gives you the option for encrypting your data with a personalized PIN; this even encrypts your data from Google. If you trust your data in Google’s hands then give this extension a shot (even if you don’t trust Google, they still know what you are doing – but I’ll save that for another post).
