unveiled by Jono from Mozilla Labs, the latest version of Mozilla Labs' Weave can
sync open tabs between Firefox on the desktop and Firefox's mobile browser
Weave is a Mozilla Labs experiment to explore opportunities for the Web browser
to broker richer experiences while increasing user control over their data and
personal information. The initial focus is on enabling Weave Sync to encrypt and
securely synchronize the Firefox experience across multiple browsers. As a
matter of fact it means that every Firefox/Mozilla browser has the ability to
access the tabs that are open on other synced browsers and to locally open
copies of those tabs.
On the left sidebar of Fennec, where your tabs appear, is a new Weave button.
Clicking the button slides the screen further to the left for a full-screen view
of tabs from other computers. If you have more than two browsers being synced,
each remote browser will have its own column here. Each column is identified
with the client name.
A click on one of the remote tabs opens a local copy of it, which adds it to
the tab bar, as you can see here.
Please keep in mind that both - Fennec and Mozilla Labs' Wave - are currently
under development and nothing is final yet. Nevertheless, Wave for Fennec is an
interesting showcase what a Mozilla suite of web browsers could provide for
