We all have a browser of choice, whether we choose to stick with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Opera. Whatever the choice, we prefer to use the same browser at work, at home and on our laptop. We like familiarity and we prefer to include the same bookmarks across our computers.
However, short of exporting your bookmarks, regularly, and emailing them to yourself (or storing them on your own server), how do you get your bookmarks from one computer to another?
For Firefox users, Google have created their own Firefox Bookmark Sync tool which works very well. Wherever you’re using Firefox, you can automatically login to your account (which occurs as soon as you start Firefox) and your bookmarks are synchronised. If you added a bookmark using Firefox at work, the same bookmark will now be available on your home computer.
There’s now a similar tool for Opera users. oSync is a tool that will enable you to synchronise your bookmarks across every copy of Opera, whatever computer you are using. However, it’s not quite a ingenious or fluid as the Google solution for Firefox and requires the use of an FTP server to store your private bookmarks.
