Mozilla Weave Being Rebranded as Firefox Sync

Weave — Mozilla Labs’ sync add-on for Firefox — is being rebranded as Firefox Sync, according to the release notes on the latest beta of Weave 1.3. In addition to the rebranding, Firefox Sync 1.3b5 incorporates quite a few improvements, including:

  • A facelift for the client UI
  • Improved response time with sync
  • Bookmark backup before initial sync
  • New production server clusters built to handle larger loads
  • Support on Fennec devices

Developer Tony Chung says that Mozilla Labs is hoping to release the final version of Firefox Sync 1.3 this month.
