Brave Sync is really buggy!

My complete bookmark organization was destroyed by Sync. Single bookmarks are named by folder names…

xBrowserSync works reasonably well - used it to sync between Chrome and Brave without issue.

xBrowserSync is also open source - GitHub page. The Brave team might want to considered incorporating that into Brave rather than rolling their own solution - a working sync solution is critical and contributing to a project that’s already working might save a lot of development time / effort.

Not for me. Since the last update of Brave and the change in the bookmark structure xBrowserSync reports me " Unexpected bookmarks structure" and denies the sync.

That’s really too bad. No functioning sync and breaking functionality with existing sync solutions seem like a horrible idea.

Guessing it was this change in v1.2.41 that broke things. Seemed largely cosmetic to me so not sure why the Brave team chose to do it if it would break things.

Made the decision to move back to Chrome yesterday so maybe I was lucky enough to not receive that update before switching back. Will still use Brave on my phone but desktop is back to Chrome until sync is working. Having a functioning sync solution really is table stakes for a browser - hopefully the Brave team gets it working soon.

So, any update on when this will be fixed? I can’t believe such a desired feature has been on the backburner for almost (if not over) a full year!

Brave told me updating wouldn’t work, so I had to reinstall. Once I reinstalled (really I just installed over my existing install), bookmark sync was re-enabled and f’d up all my bookmarks AGAIN. So frustrating.

Any update here? Feature still not working and it’s crucial for a lot of people.
