Firefox only (Windows/Mac/Linux): Mozilla's in-house syncing extension, called Mozilla Weave, updated today with a new, polished UI for setting up and configuring your sync preferences, "major performance improvements", better error handling, and support for syncing Personas, Firefox's on-the-fly theming add-on.

Mozilla's bookmark- and password-syncing Firefox extension Weave updates to version 0.5 with performance improvements and some nice feature tweaks. Among them: Weave now waits to sync until you're not active in the browser, supports changing passwords and passphrases, and adds support for Fennec on Windows Mobile. If you're a Weave user, head on over to Mozilla Labs to grab the update.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
We've shown you how Mozilla Weave syncs your browsing experience—including bookmarks and passwords—in the past, but the folks at Mozilla are hoping to improve this experience with integration for automatic web site logins.
Mozilla Labs highlights a very cool feature coming to Fennec, the mobile version of Firefox: Fennec now syncs browser tabs with previously mentioned Weave, so you can easily access any of the pages you were browsing on your desktop installation of Firefox from your mobile browser. Handy!
The newest version of Mozilla's experimental browser-syncing tool, Weave, just hit the net, and it's seen a few marked improvements since it was first available. Going beyond bookmarks, Weave can match up your Firefox 3 settings, cookies, browsing history, and even tabs between browsers, with experimental support for passwords and form data—in other words, just about everything except extensions, themes, and plug-ins. There's a lot more to come, and it's still a pretty rough around the edges—this is, after all, just version 0.2—but follow along after the jump to see some of what Weave can do, or at least one day will do, to keep your Firefox browsing consistent and convenient.
