It's the syncing
Authored by: friedmaj on Feb 09, '06 09:31:49AM

I'm sure Firefox is excellent, but it would have to be MUCH better than Safari for me to give up the automatic bookmark syncing I get via .Mac. I routinely use 4-5 different Macs, so that's a big plus.

That is one reason I'm with Firefox. I can sync my bookmarks between my Windows machines and my macs with an extension called "Bookmarks Synchronizer."

I was so excited when I saw your mention of "Bookmarks Synchronizer", and then so bummed out when I learned it can't be had for my version of FireFox. Bummer.

What version are you using it on? I have the latest version and it works great.

It's the syncing - BookIt
Authored by: mbaudis on Feb 09, '06 03:51:00PM

BookIt. Shareware, but syncs between all browsers and .Mac

Especially helpful, since I switch every quarter to a new browser... Though for a while now, Firefox (with GrApple theme, Adblock, Informenter) has been the 98% browser - with rare stupid sites making me use Safari sometimes.

Keychain would be nice, though ...

It's the syncing - BookIt

Based on your post I downloaded and paid for Bookit. Unfortunately, I can't get Dot Mac syncing to work with it. I wrote the author and here's his reply:

"I'll certainly look into this and I'll be sure to get this working correctly in the next version of Bookit."

Are you really able sync non-Safari browsers via Dot Mac using Bookit?
