Not browsers in general, my browser.
Let’s see what I’ve got going right now that distinguishes my
browsing experience from yours;
- my bookmarks
- my preferences
- my config params
- Greasemonkey and assorted scripts
- Platypus and assorted “scripts”
- my form textareas
- my plugins
- my currently open windows and tabs
- Web developer and its settings
I’m certainly forgetting others.
It’s a big pain in my arse when I update something on my laptop, and then have to remember to replicate it on my PC at home. Big pain. I think the time is right to stuff a micro Web server into the browser to make all this data available via http URLs, so that I can point another copy of Firefox at it and have my experience cloned. Ok, maybe not the cache or history, but you get the point.
And while we’re at it, maybe we can find some other uses for the embedded server.
