Today's Nifty Software: FEBE

FEBE is the Firefox Extension Backup Extension, a "does what it says on the tin" Firefox extension backup and synchronisation tool - as an extension (of course). Oh, the recursiveness...

Now almost all of my browsers can behave the same way...

Windows only

Oooh, that's handy.

I'll have a closer look at home - but does it back things up to an FTP site, or just to a file on your hard drive?

Local hard drive.

Now, if we could get these guys and the Foxmarks guys to talk to each other...

Aaah - I was using a different bookmarks synchroniser (which also worked with FTP) about 6 months ago, but stopped because it was a bit of a pain and sometimes got slightly confused.

I might try again.

Being able to have exactly the same user experience wherever you are would be handy.

Hmmmm. What would be useful would be a "preferences" blob, which contained settings, bookmarks, extensions, etc. that can be backed up/restored between machines. You'd probably need to have Settings.OSSpecific and Settings.Generic to deal with extensions that didn't run under all Operating Systems. And the fun to be had when restoring stuff you'd backed up under one version of FireFox into a later (or earlier) version.

Sounds like a 'hard' problem. Possibly we're better off with several different extensions, each doing their own thing best...

Banana. Plus pudding left over form the previous evening. Apple crumble's best of the lot. Apple pie's fine. Fruit salad OK. Always, however, one banana--and green tea.

I suspect that's one for yonmei, not me.

You are talking about breakfast?

Oops! Indeed, breakfat. Time, methinks to clean the monitor or my specs. Or both.
