Google Browser Sync

Oh, those Google guys!

Google Browser Sync (Firefox extension)

This Firefox extension will sync your Firefox bookmarks, settings, saved passwords, persistent cookies, etc. onto Google (similar to existing GDrive-type applications) thus causing those bookmarks, settings, etc. show up automagically on every Firefox you use.

For example, you add a bookmark at home. It gets pushed onto Google's server. Later, at the office, you open Firefox... and the bookmark shows up there too!

There are definitely privacy issues (remember: saved passwords can also be sync'd; though you can configure what you want sync'd)... but this may be very convenient for some people who find themselves bouncing from computer to computer to computer.
