Windows Live Favorites – Your Centralized, Synchronized favorites database.
I have two desktops at work and a laptop. Add another desktop at home. I am having a real hard time to move my favorites around four different computers. Sometimes, I mail the URLs to myself and try to open it later. Bookmarking is supposed to make life easier, but with more and more people working on multiple computers every day – keeping track of Favorites is a real pain. (With blogs however, there are web based RSS Readers to make things easy)
I was looking for a way to synchronize my bookmarks around all my computers. I can use web-based bookmarking apps like the one from Google. But again, this is not easy to access as you have to open Google website to access them – compared to Browser Favorites which is just a click away.
Enter – Windows Live Favorites – things are much easier for me now.
Live toolbar will automatically synchronize your browser Favorites with the Live Favorites and the other way round. So each time you start a Browser window – Live toolbar will make sure your IE Favorites are in ‘sync’ with the centralized Live Favorites.
No matter which PC you are on; you can use your Browser favorites which is already synchronized across all the machines via the Live Favorites database.
This certainly saves a lot of time for me and ensures I don’t spend time searching for the same content again using a search engine.
