weave syncWeave Sync is a prototype Firefox extenstion by Mozilla Labs that encrypts and securely synchronizes the Firefox experience across multiple browsers, so that your desktop, laptop, and mobile phone can all work together.

Weave Sync currently supports continuous synchronization of your bookmarks, browsing history, saved passwords and tabs:

* Get the same results on the Smart Location Bar on each of your Firefox browsers, so you can get to your favorite 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 favorite 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
