New Fire Fox Extension from Google

After visiting google labs to check out the newest things from them, I noticed a new extension for Fire Fox. It's called Google Browser Sync. A description on the site says:

"Google Browser Sync for Firefox is an extension that continuously synchronizes your browser settings ‚– including bookmarks, history, persistent cookies, and saved passwords – across your computers. It also allows you to restore open tabs and windows across different machines and browser sessions."

I read this and thought to myself, this will be good and bad.

The good:
I can see this being very use full for people who use different computers. As I do.

The Bad:
I ask myself, do I really want to have google remember all that information.
I could see this being a kind of a privacy issue here. I guess it is probably no worse than using them for your email.

Upshot:
I could really see this to be very useful but potential privacy concern will make me think twice before installing this.
