Google Browser Sync is probably one of the most useful extensions made available for FireFox. Myself, as many of my colleagues and friends utilize this extension. Here is the explanation regarding Google Browser Sync taken off of Google's page:
"Google Browser Sync for Firefox is an extension that continuously synchronizes your browser settings: including bookmarks, history, persistent cookies, and saved passwords, across your computers. It also allows you to restore open tabs and windows across different machines and browser sessions."
Recently, the Mozilla team has released beta revisions of FireFox 3. In addition, Ubuntu(the most popular linux desktop OS), released version 8.04 which installs FireFox 3 by default. The newer versions of FireFox 3 do not support Google Browser Sync. This leaves many people stranded and torn between using an old version of FireFox, or going without the features that they have come synonymous with the use of FireFox(with Google Browser Sync).
Many people have already started to voice their opinion on this. To find the thread, please search google for: please update google browser sync
