Firefox Beta 4 sync'ing between devices

As I wrote earlier Sending links from computer to android device using Chrome to Phone is a great feature for staying productive on the go. Mozilla Labs is beta testing there Firefox 4 beta web browser and I must say it is running smooth so far.  You can download directly with this link Firefox 4 beta.  What impressed me immediately was the high score of 97 out of 100 on the acid3 test.  The past builds I was lucky to break 93.  Here is proof of the score:

Once you have Firefox 4 installed head over to Firefox Sync.  It is a free browser add-on that lets you stay in sync with your Firefox. Access your history, passwords, bookmarks and even open tabs across all your devices.  Firefox Sync 1.4.4 Add-on download it free.  Then go into the options and click on the sync tab and sign-up.  Remember the information you entered it will be needed in your Android phone like the  Motorola DROID X.

Now go and download the Fennec Firefox mobile browser install it and launch it.  Take time to look around and get to know the browser and stop by and read about some of the features click here. Hit the menu key to see what it does slide your finger right and left to see the sub menus.  Then slide your finger right to left and bring up the options button scroll down and fill-in your sync account information.  This will trigger and automatic sync to your phone.  When ready to see what tabs you have open on your desktop slide your finger left to right and click the monitor button at the bottom (see image below).

Word of caution Fennec Firefox mobile is in alpha testing and will probably contain a few bugs.  This just means you may experience some force closures.  Just keep an eye on this blog and we will keep you updated when new releases come out.

These are great times to have an Android device.  The development of apps and devices are great fun.  If I could I would probably own a new device every 6 months.
