    Mozilla, developer of the popular Firefox web browser, have launched a new related service, Weave. Currently available only as a test version associated with the latest Firefox 3 beta, it should allow users to carry history and bookmarks from one computer to another, as well as share the information with select friends and family; users need only to create a Weave account and download the add-on. To prevent the natural threat of privacy invasion, Weave accounts are password-protected, and encrypted. Weave will run on Windows and Linux systems as well as Macs.

    That's the feature my friend missed for a long time. He uses Avant browser at the moment and wants try Fx once it has that feature.
    Good work~

    Personally, I wouldn't use it I guess. Don't want my bookmarks/history stored online ;)

    I use Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer to sync my bookmarks between all my pc's

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2410

    Works in the background and keeps all my bookmarks up to date on each pc.Just stores bookmarks and no history.

    Quite a useful add on,I would be lost with out it.
