I Miss My GBS

So I downloaded and installed Firefox 3. It’s a great product and I want to support the open-source effort. It’s certainly snappier than the previous version — the javascript performance is noticable right away — but there’s one major disappointment: no Google Browser Sync. The company is no longer supporting the product. GBS was, by far, my favorite Firefox add-on. It’s nice that it backed up my bookmarks, passwords, cookies, etc., but the one feature I loved was that it saved open tabs. So whenever I closed Firefox it would save all the tabs I had open. Next time I started the program, it launched the tabs I had open. I always start off with the same four tabs (two email accounts, boxing forums, and Pokemon forums). Having to manually type them in is a real drag and I sorely miss GBS. Hopefully a suitable replacement comes along soon.

This is the first time I’ve ever been pissed at Google.

  1. Err. Problem solved! Between Foxmarks Synchronizer and some preferences tweaks, I can get most of what Google Smart Browsing offered.
