Feature Request: Profiles #26

Hi,
I know that this is a bigger thing ...
xMarks had this feature and I would like to request it for xBrowserSync, too.

It would be great to have profiles. Each bookmark (or folder) can be assigned to a profile. By default it is automatically assigned to the default profile. Let's assume that we further have a profile called "work" and one "home". When configuring the app or extension it should be possible to choose the desired profile - and only those bookmarks would be synced.
This would allow to have all bookmarks at one place but only synchronise (and display) the ones that you really need on a specific device.
I have bookmarks that I use only at work, others only at home and some at home and at work.
Also a profile for a mobile device would be helpful.

I hope my explanation is clear enough ...

Best regards, Tom

Hi @Metal-Frog, interesting suggestion. Just to be clear, are you saying only bookmarks in the selected profile would be created in the local browser but you would still see bookmarks from all profiles within the xBrowserSync app /extension?

Hi,
when you've selected the profile "home" you see only those from that profile. None from the others.
If you add a new bookmark it is visible in all profiles. If you would like to change this you have to call the GUI to edit the profiles.
The following two pictures may help for better understanding:

Right I see, thanks for the clarification. I think this would make a good feature for v2 once all the core syncing functionality has been implemented and major browsers supported.

Hi,
I would definitively love to have this in xbrowsersync !
Moving for the -now dead- xmarks, profiles is the only feature I really miss.
But obviously it makes sense to finish major browsers support first :-)

No need to provide support for all major browsers. Firefox and Brave would be enough :D

Wrong thread?

Not at all. I would like profiles too (for selected syncing). The aforementioned comment was a joke (not entirely actually, but never mind)...

+1 on this feature. Currently using "syncmarcx" until profiles are implemented. There are lots of bookmark sync options, but the profile setting is what made xmarks unique and useful.
Looking forward to seeing it here!
