Mozilla Collections

Mozilla has recently announced Mozilla Collections extension. I have been waiting for some thing like this for quite some time. I work with multiple computers: Work Desktop, Work Laptop, Personal Laptop, Mac Mini HTPC. I have Firefox installed on all of those. But they always have a different set of extensions installed. I have tried BELOW, waited for Weave to add the functionality…

Mozilla Collections seems to be the answer. Collections has two parts first the extension that can be installed form here. Then you have to sign up for a mozilla account and go to Collections page. Here you can subscribe to Collections created by others or create your own. A Collection is just a group of extensions.

Now you sign in with the mozilla account in Firefox (Tools>Add ons>Subscriptions). Here you can view all your scubscriptions and add extension to Firefox from it. You can even create and manage your Collection here.

You are notified of any new additions to your subscriptions too. Pretty cool. Check out my collection here.
