My little scripts for syncing Google Chrome search engines preferences are now available on GitHub, where it’s simpler for anyone to grab them and modify them.
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”.
Update: since Lifehacker featured this post on their home page, I released some simpler updated version of the scripts here. The wonderful thing about open-source software is that whenever something’s missing, anybody can go ahead and fix it… that is, unless nobody cares enough about it. And that’s precisely what’s happening with the “search engines sync” feature in Google Chrome, which has been in Chromium’s bug database for more than a year and a half.
