Idea for Brendan's browser
What would happen if localStorage could be synced across all the users' machines? Really interesting stuff, imho. ;-)

I've been emailing with Brendan Eich, developer of JavaScript and founder of Brave Software, makers of the Brave browser. I had an idea for him, but thought it might be of general interest, so I posted it here.

Hey Brendan!

I have an idea for your browser.

Sync localStorage across all the machines I use your browser on.

You'd need the concept of identity, for that I'd strongly recommend just building on Twitter and/or Facebook. I just use Twitter in my systems. Their servers are reliable. And they are not Facebook. :boom:

Then we could talk about an API so other software could access the user's localStorage. Then we'd be getting somewhere interesting, if the installed base of your software took off. Thing is, a feature like this might make it take off.
