While I was in San Francisco last week I (obviously) did all of my computing on my laptop; it really got me thinking about the options that are out there when it comes to sychronizing stuff on different machines.
I found out about Portable Firefox this morning and spent a few minutes downloading and performing the steps required to get it working. Download the software, throw it on your flash drive and you have, as the name implies, a portable version of the browser with all of your bookmarks and extensions! Built on John Haller’s Portable Firefox 1.0.6 (for Windows), the latest version is cross-platform and requires a quick modification before being ready for the Mac. I’m still tinkering with mine, but it seems like a fantastic idea – I always have my flash drive handy and it’s so much easier than booting up both machines, connecting them and manually copying the appropriate files. Cross-platform compatibility makes it a no-brainer. If anyone out there has gotten it working and has any remarks, post ‘em!
