Carry your Internet Explorer favorites with you.

Do you have your browser favorites synchronized between your home pc, laptop and office machine. Most probably your answer will be ‘no’. That’s because there is no easy way to keep them synchronized.

It would be fun to have the favorites follow you rather than the other way round.

Recently I came across two tools, which do just that (to some extent). One is A9 from Amazon. And the other is Yahoo toolbar. Both store your favorites in server rather than in client machines. So after you login they are available from any machine. While A9 is 100% web based, Yahoo toolbar needs to be installed on the machine. But it’s easier to access the favorites using yahoo toolbar than using A9.
