Firefox Sync

When i used Google Chrome for the first time, i spotted a nice feature called Sync which enables us to synchronize our preferences on one computer to be stored at our Google's account and we can transfer it to another computer (for example our laptop or workstation at the office) without having to export anything like in the past. We only need Internet access to Google and open up your Google Chrome and pick Synced option. Logged in to Google's account and your preferences are synced. Piece a cake huh? Rock

I tried to find this feature in Firefox, but i was disappointed when i used a third party extensions (i forgot the name of the extension since it was quite a long time ago), but today, i'm installing Firefox Sync (previously named as Weave) to give it a try again. It's a useful tool which enables us to save our history, passwords, bookmarks and even open tabs across all your devices. What i like about this tool is that it gives us more options about what should we sync. For me, i only need to sync the bookmarks entries so that i will have a same bookmark entries in all of my computers.
