Sync your browser!

Yesterday I installed the rather fantastic Google Browser Sync. A solution to a problem I had been trying to deal with unsuccessfully for quite some time now: keeping personal bookmarks, passwords and browser sessions and windows synced over a number of computers.

So I’ve been using it for a day now and my conclusion thus far is: it just works. Really.

During a typical working day I have about 10 to 15 browser tabs open on my desktop at any given time. Google Browser Sync allows me to save the state of my browser & all of the tabs remotely, so when I fire up my browser on my laptop, it automatically retrieves the last saved state & can continue to work where I left off.

Brilliant.

The same goes for logins & passwords, and ?? also important ?? my browser history.

One drawback of course is the fact that all of this information is stored on a server, encrypted of course, but nevertheless…

On the other hand, I do believe that security at Google is and will be much better than anything I can ever achieve on my personal computers.

Install it & let me know what you think.

One thought on “Sync your browser!”

  1. Great tool! If it works…

    I get an error at the moment:

    Error ’51 Request timeout’ occurred while syncing, please try again later.
