Google Loses Some Ground

I’ve “changed my mind”:http://open-dialogue.com/blog/2007/01/09/google-and-apple-to-take-over-the-world/ – I don’t like Google Browser Sync after all. I’ve been using it for several days now, except that ‘using’ is a bit of an overstatement. It’s more like it’s using me, and laughing about it. The add-on for Firefox worked the very first time, when I installed it, and it hasn’t worked since. I’ve messed with it quite a bit, trying to figure out if I did something wrong in the setup or configuration; I even double-checked my PIN to make sure I’d entered it correctly (I had). No dice.

So, I’m not really sure what happened, why it won’t work. The odd thing is, occasionally, when I go to leave a comment on a Blogger site, one of the ones that is configured to pop-up a new window for comments, _then_ it’ll ask if I want to restore the session from my other computer – and that’s exactly the sort of window I _don’t_ want to restore the session into. Why it won’t ask me when I initially re-open my main browsing window I don’t know.

So, Google Browser Sync has gone bye-bye. If they build a new upgrade with some bug fixes, I’d be willing to give it another shot – but not until then.
