Yesterday saw the release of Google Browser Sync
, an extension for Firefox from Google that stores your bookmarks, history, cookies, saved passwords, and open tabs and windows online so you can access them from anywhere (or, at least, anywhere you have access to Firefox and Google Browser Sync). This sort of thing has been done before (see Bookmarks Synchronizer
), but I think this is the first extension that stores not only bookmarks but also history, cookies, passwords, etc. Your data will be stored on Google's servers, but it will be encrypted with a key of your choosing before it's sent, which should protect it from evil hackers as well as (in theory) Google itself. Not bad, Google. Of course, Google Browser Sync is free but requires a Google Account.
