Mozilla testing simplified system for synchronizing Firefox content
Mozilla has started testing a username and password approach to Firefox Sync. Sync allows users to access browser content across multiple computers and mobile devices, and previously required typing a "pairing code" shown on one browser into another. Mozilla's username-password authentication for syncing is now available in the nightly build of Firefox, and will be included in more stable versions of Firefox soon.
