Google Browser Sync

I have no idea what this has to do with web search, but Google has released a browser sync plugin for Firefox. It allows you to store all your browser settings, history, passwords, etc. on Google's servers and then have it automatically sync to other computers that you've installed the plugin on.

At the moment I mainly use my Windows desktop system at home, and my work desktop at work (and my work laptop when working from home). I wouldn't install something like this on a work system due to security issues. So I probably don't have much use for this plugin at the moment.

But when I ressurect my dead iBook (or more likely purchase a MacBook one of these days), I know this will be a must-have plugin for me. Although I have moved in large part to online bookmarking services, such as furl, I still see a huge value in having my various browsers in sync.
