Firefox 3 and Google Browser Sync

Slashdot has picked up on the news that Google isn’t just abandoning Browser Sync, but making it open source. So it may be that some kind soul will bring it along for Firefox 3.

But why wait? In a flurry of activity no doubt generated by the news of the impending Google release, the folks over at Mozilla labs released Weave 0.2. (Its not yet available for PPC Mac, but some folks have been working to compile it on that platform and it may be available soon.)

Weave is very impressive, and promises to eventually sync everything (including your extensions) in future releases.

Google Open Source Blog: Open Sourcing Browser Sync

we’ve released the code in the hopes that those folks who asked for it will use it to develop something cool. For example, it would be great to see the server ported to Google App Engine, or support for Firefox 3 implemented.

You can check out the code using any Subversion client, and we have posted a short tutorial explaining how to build and run it.
