Anyone knows a program/extension that make the Chrome backup?
Like MozBackup does for Firefox.

just found that, but the scope seems much wider than just Chrome:

@nmb sorry I didn't realised Chrome had v10.0 I've never heard of FavBackup before.


Sorry all version is way out of date for Chrome Browser.

Why can't you just use the chrome sync function to "backup" your settings?  It's been working fine, even cross-platform for me.

Even brings my apps, themes, and preferences over to any machine that I set up to work with it.  I've noticed that others have said it's buggy before, but the only thing that I've seen is that my themes get a little screwy after a while.  I just download them again and everything's fine.

sync feature can't be considered as a backup option, because if shit happens, shit just syncs  ;D

agree that WOT is a piece of junk, absolutely useless.
Okay look... WOT is user-based, yes. Guess what. Such systems work rather well... look, doesn't Avast itself have user-based virus submission? Sure, scammers may submit their virus as false-positive or a regular program as a virus - not like that happens often, right!? Right. Konversation terminated.

Personal opinions have absolutely nothing to do with Safety.
This again point out the flaw that's prevalent through out the WOT ratings. When you allow personal opinion to sway the facts,
then we are talking about popularity not Safety.
Its a popularity fan club populated by users that have no clue about Safety on the Internet. ::)
