  1. Haha..just as I was showing this to a friend, you go and post about it!

    Haven’t installed it myself though. Not too sure with Google having access to all that private info…

    I’ve installed it, and I’m now using it side by side with SessionSaver, i.e. I’m only using the password and bookmark syncronization. That works pretty well.

    I finally started using Del.icio.us. It took a computer crash for me to start. Maybe I’ll save myself a headache and try this too.

    Actually, for backing up your bookmarks, I’d say del.icio.us is enough.

    To be honest, I don’t see much purpose in using this extension unless you actually work and surf from more than one computer (e.g. in my case, home and work).

    Yea, I have 2 work machines. I had to get another until I could get my 4 year old G4 laptop back up and running. Now my biggest issue is syncronizing the two, so I don’t have to crate stuff back and forth.

    I usually work from home, but I’m on contract on location right now and they want me in the office so they can keep an eye on me. Two computers, two locations.. and this is why all my email accounts now forward to Google. That’s at least one less thing to sync.

    Or if you don’t want your bookmarks unencrypted somewhere (online banking strikes again!).

    Not having tried it, I have to ask: Do your de.li.cio.us always have to be public?

    no you can choose pages to hide by enabling private saving of bookmarks in settings. You then get a do not share check box when you tag a page.
