Google releases Google Browser Sync

There's a post on the Google Blog about a new Firefox extension (googleblog.blogspot.com/2006/0 ...)

From the post: "What could be worse than forgetting to bookmark the obscure page you found that maps out the perfect walking tour of Venice? Having bookmarked it on the computer sitting on your desk back at home, 6000 miles away, instead of on the laptop you brought along.

These sorts of frustrations inspired us to build a Firefox extension that keeps your browser settings for all your computers in sync. Google Browser Sync unifies 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. We think you'll enjoy how it handles sync conflicts and "just works," enabling you to bring your browser with you everywhere."

Of course, this depends on you using Firefox everywhere (and being able to install the plugin), but cool nonetheless!

It would be even better if you could sync your extensions also ...

It would also be better if it worked across browsers too.
