I have noticed that Mozilla Weave Sync extension got a new name a couple of days ago. Today I received some good news in the Mozilla blog feed: it will become a feature of Firefox in an upcoming major release.


We are excited to announce that the “Weave Sync” project from Mozilla Labs has officially graduated and is now being incorporated into the Firefox roadmap. “Weave Sync” is now named “Firefox Sync” and the service will become a feature of Firefox in an upcoming major release. Until then you can download Firefox Sync as an add-on.

I'm going to test it right now.

So it syncs your bookmarks, tabs, etc.? Sounds handy.

The UbuntuOne is supposed to backup the bookmarks, maybe they should tie in with this for seamless sync? I know the limitation of UbuntuOne is that it is currently only for Ubuntu systems.

Bookmarks, passwords, preferences, history and tabs.

Say goodbye to Xmarks, unless you want to sync with chrome too.
