Poor man’s search engines sync for Google Chrome (version 2)

After receiving some feedback, I’ve updated my scripts for syncing the search engine settings in Google Chrome. You can grab the new ZIP file here.

Here are the changes:

  • I’ve written some native CMD.EXE scripts for Windows, which are easier to run than the Powershell ones for non dev people (or devs that never used Powershell).
  • The scripts have been renamed to “export” and “import” since most people don’t get the “push” and “pull”.
  • The “import” script creates a backup of the settings files (a file called “Web Data.backup” in the same directory) so you can revert to the previous version if something goes wrong.
