Ok I had a pretty serious go at this today, at the cost of my time, trying to make a modern interwebs browser sync some hyperlinks (aka URLs and/or bookmarks).
So i have three devices. I deleted all book marks on laptop and phone and unlinked them from the sync chain. I reorganised the bookmarks in Brave on my desktop to a few main folders, so it would be easy and quick to delete on other devices if my trick didn’t work. I then exported my new cropped down book mark structure to drive so i have it safe. I then deleted all bookmarks on the desktop PC as well. Now I had 3 clean devices, unlinked from each other. I proceeded to import the new 200 or so bookmarks from file into Brave on the desktop and then linked back the phone and laptop via QR code and 24 word key.
Did it work? Nope.
The phone, over 20 mins or so, took about 25% of the bookmarks, disregarding folder structure… i.e. some bookmarks were taken individually, a few folders were complete and some empty. complete hotchpotch. Unusable. Unworkable and completely baffling.
The laptop, wen’t a stretch further. It actually found the original mess of 6 month old, unsynced and messed up bookmark structure… not related at all to the one i just imported to the desktop PC.
I am not a database engineer but I dare to say there that “something ain’t right in Denmark” on this one. I’m going to do the same test on chrome now. My money is on that it will work immediately. If so, im back on chrome until Brave can sort this.
have fun ya’ll
