Hi! I use Firefox as my primary browser on my Android phone and my Mac laptop.
Switching to Orion on Mac is difficult, because I wouldn't have my history synced with my Android phone.
Would it be possible to sync my bookmarks/history between the two different browsers (Firefox on Android and Onion on Mac)?
Firefox calls this feature Firefox Sync.
I know "Firefox Integration" sounds like a strange feature request, but look at it this way:
- Firefox has a huge userbase, most of which is on Android/Windows.
- If Orion could sync its history with Firefox, then it would provide incentive to switch on Mac (while keeping Firefox on Windows/Android).
Using two different browsers is difficult. That's why right now I use Firefox as my main browser on Mac.
Right now syncing history/bookmarks is the biggest thing preventing me from switching to Onion. I plan on continuing to use Firefox on Android, and it's very difficult switching back and forth between Firefox and Onion.
Making an extension API could also possibly help with this and allow someone to implement it as a web extension.
Note that Firefox's code for syncing bookmarks & history is open source and well documented, so it shouldn't be too hard to implement: https://github.com/mozilla/gecko-dev/blob/71515d047cbdd02687a1b9b7265f2ffb51300bf1/services/sync/docs/engines.rst
