Google Browser Sync for Bookmarks, History, Cookies, Passwords

Google Browser Sync is a firefox extension released by Google that synchronizes your bookmarks, history, saved passwords, and persistent cookies across all the computers where you install it. It also remembers which tabs and windows you had open when you last closed any of your browsers and gives you a chance to reopen them.

Google Browser Sync updates your browser settings whenever you start Firefox and it will increase the start-up time of Firefox. So that is something you need to look out for…

Remember you’ll need a Google Account to complete the setup process. Choose which browser components you’d like to keep synchronized with your other computers (the standard install includes all possible components), and choose a PIN to protect your sensitive information.

Google Browser Sync will automatically synchronize across each of the computers on which you install Browser Sync and you won’t even need to log in every time you start the browser.

Now that is very helpful since I can keep my firefox synchronized with my bookmarks, history, saved passwords, and cookies across my home computer, office mac and my laptop! Thanks Google…
