Mozilla Weave – Download, Register Account and Sync Firefox Profile across computers

It’s almost been an year, I have mentioned about Mozilla Weave, the alternative toMozilla Weave 0.3 Google Browser Sync for firefox. There hasn’t been significant activity after that. Mozilla Labs released the Weave 0.3 version which is more stable and does the job of encrypting and securely synchronizing History, Tabs, Bookmarks, Passwords across multiple browsers, so that your desktop, laptop, and even mobile phone can all work together.

Weave doesn’t sync all of your browser add-ons. But that is planned for a future release. The server errors are very much reduced in this new version which were widely known issues from forums. This version also let you setup your own WebDav server for syncing.

How to get started with Weave.

  • Step 1. Make sure you are running the latest Firefox beta
  • Step 2. Download and install the Weave client.
  • Step 3. Open the Weave menu in the Tools menu or the bottom-right of the status-bar and select ‘Register’ or ‘Sign in’  to start using Weave!

I’ve have been using Foxmarks (now called Xmarks) which synchronizes bookmarks and passwords and works with Firefox 2, 3. It doesn’t sync tabs or histories.

  1. I never tried this.. I always prefer foxymarks and later xmarks for synchronizing my bookmarks and passwords

  2. @Harsh – Weave is like Google Sync which was available for FF2, does a complete sync.
