Mozilla Labs has another beauty in the works. It is a service that will allow your Firefox browser through an add-on to sync with other Firefox browsers across desktops and mobile phones.
Basically you can now access your Firefox browser’s history, bookmarks, tabs, forms, preferences and passwords from anywhere.
How does Weave work?
- What Weave does is stores information from your Firefox browser to a cloud or a server and it can be downloaded or be in sync with your Firefox browser on another computer or mobile phone.
- Bookmarks saved at a computer at home can be accessed from the computer at work by syncing the browsers with the Weave server.
- Continuation of work on a browser will be much easier. You have a tab open at one computer then it will be open on the other location because the Weave server keeps them both synchronized.
- A cool part of this is add-on is that it allows you to save passwords and then sync it with your mobile phone’s browser. That is very handy as sometimes it is difficult for mobile users to enter complex passwords. 🙂
Firefox’s Weave is available on Firefox 3.5 and upwards. It is still a beta project and being developed further with an eye to being a stable feature for Firefox 4 which will be released next year.
