Google released Browser Sync, which lets you sync your Firefox bookmarks and other information between computers. Perfect if you dual-boot XP and OS X. Yay!

okay so in osx you have your firefox browser with all of your bookmarks....you also like to boot up in occasion in winxp on your mac and you also use firefox. now lets say that you are in winxp and you find a new site you think is super cool. so you bookmark it.

now next time you boot up in os x and you open firefox it will automatically update your firfox browser with that bookmark that you bookmarked while using xp. make sense??

sounds like a nifty feature

I use .Mac to sync bookmarks or I use the online bookmarks at .Mac if I'm on a Widows machine

It's funny really, I was having a fit I couldn't run Warcraft 3 TFT (not universal yet) on my Mini Mactel, installed bootcamp ran it flawlessly on WinXP.. now I haven't started WinXP again...

.mac is a waste of money to me, I dont see the point in it for me personally as i have webspace somewhere for storage and its private, i have a 3gb email account which is spam free and i keep all is accessable from my memory stick as i have portable apps on it
