Mozilla Weave is an add-on for Mozilla products that can sync data between multiple installations. Weave can for instance be used by Firefox users to synchronize bookmarks, passwords, filled forms, preferences or the web browsing history between multiple computer systems running the web browser with the Weave add-on installed.
The basic Weave client uses Mozilla web servers to store the encrypted information so that all Weave installations can access the data regardless of the states of the other computer systems running Weave.
Weave users need to create an account – or more than one – that needs to be used on all computer systems to authorize the computer system so that the data can be transferred.
The data that gets synchronized this way can be selected in the the options which can be interesting for users who might prefer not to sync the open tabs or the browsing history.
A Weave server was released as well which can be used by companies to implement Weave on their servers so that no third party servers like the Mozilla Weave servers are used for data storage and transfers.
Mobile users can look forward to Weave 1.0 being released tomorrow for Maemo with the likelihood that support for other devices is expanded in the near future once the Firefox mobile developers start supporting those devices in upcoming releases.
Weave can be downloaded from the Mozilla website. The add-on is compatible with all Firefox 3.5 to 3.7x versions.
