Alina’s Tech Rec: Firefox Sync (and Google Chrome’s account sing-in feature) – first and foremost, it’s a simple way to bring your desktop bookmarks to your smartphone or tablet (or to a second computer). It can also be a simple way to get your bookmarks back if, say, your computer’s problems pissed you off so much that you did a fresh install of Windows without backing anything up so then your wife had to show you that you can use your smartphone and Sync to get at least your browser back the way it was and that’s only because she sync’ed it for you in the first place. You know, as an example.
With a Special Guest Appearance by Kayleigh’s mom.
