So far I manage to synchronize my Firefox bookmarks using Foxmarks (I used Google Browser Sync before, but a) it’s deprecated and b) it messed up the order of my bookmarks).

I would like to be able to synchronize a wider range of metadata, with the ultimate goal of having an identical browsing experience on any machine. This includes:

  2. saved passwords
  3. search engines
  4. addons
  5. settings & layout

Mozilla Weave will include No1 and No2 (plus history, cookies, saved form data, open tabs), while Foxmarks beta will now includes No2 in addition to No1.

That’s still far from including all 5 of them. To tell you the truth, I have more hope of achieving this through a generic browser + a Web2.0 interface (see iGoogle)…
