Extension Syncing #4094
Currently Brave does not sync extensions through the sync chain. It does not sync the extension settings (proxyOmega and other chrome extensions sync settings through the google sync)
Steps to Reproduce
No extensions sync nor extension data.
Extensions and extension data syncs.
Reproduces how often:
Brave version (brave://version info)
Reproducible on current release:
I know there are those who wish for this to happen. There is a post on the brave forums requesting this as well: https://community.brave.com/t/sync-extensions-across-devices/41222/8.
This would be a great feature, and the ability for it to be a selection (similar to how bookmarks are done) would be great, too!
Will syncing using our own personal servers be included, so people can choose not to expose their IP addresses to anyone but themselves? Maybe including advanced option for syncing via WebDav? Would be very nice.
Also, extension support for mobile is possible. Check out Kiwi Browser for Android. Copy/Paste?
I would love to see this to be a Desktop feature. It would make sense not to do it for mobile, since chrome doesn't do it either.
Firefox does have the feature for mobile, however this has caused many problems for extension developers, and uses a completely different extension implementation.
I wonder if we can use Firefox's sync system as a blueprint/inspiration for the Desktop sync system though. Since it works great and is open source see: https://github.com/mozilla-services/syncserver
