FireFox weave released, syncs your browser sessions between your desktop and smartphone


Weave Sync 0.4 has just been released  by Mozilla labs and now supports the new Fennec Alpha 2 for Windows Mobile.  Weave Sync lets you take your Firefox experience with you to all your Firefox browsers.  It currently supports continuous synchronization of your bookmarks, browsing history, saved passwords and tabs. For example:

  • Get the same results on the Smart Location Bar on each of your Firefox browsers, so you can get to your favourite sites with just a few keystrokes
  • Continue what you were doing: have the ability to open any tab you have open on any of your Firefox browsers
  • Keep the same list of bookmarks on all of your Firefox browsers
  • Easily sign in to all your favourite sites using your saved passwords (this is especially handy on mobile phones, where it’s hard to type in complex passwords)
  • Do it all securely: Weave Sync encrypts user data before uploading it to Mozilla’s servers, so that only you can access your data

Weave 0.4 brings:

  • Preference syncing (including Personas)
  • Identity support (automatic login, including use of OpenID logins)
  • Better support for addons using Weave
  • Support for Fennec 1.0 beta 2.
  • Significant improvements in performance during startup and opening new windows.

Weave 0.4 can for Firefox 3.5 (the only supported desktop version) can be downloaded from here.
