Anyone tried this yet? Google’s come out with a sync for Firefox settings, including bookmarks, history, persistent cookies, and saved passwords. It claims to slow the start time of Firefox – and of course Google gets to know more about me because you have to have a google account to play. Everytime the user opens firefox it updates the settings you choose. What do you think?
I’m looking for a solution for accessing my bookmarks on my desktop, laptop and on the computers at school. I was thinking about becoming dependent on one of the web-based bookmark sites like delicious but I don’t feel like I should have to have an external account somewhere to keep track of my own data. I like delicious for the social bookmarking ability but for all of my bookmarks? Even if they were private? Seems…extreme. I’d like something I could save to my flash drive and carry with me that would have all my profile information, that I could pop in and then take home with me when I was done. It would save all my updates and put an end to the “which computer was I on when I was working on that?” hassle.
What do you use to make your bookmarks portable?
