- Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternenvon jasonbrown1965, vor 5 TagenAs an open source project, wanted to like Floccus so much, but serious issues affect data security and privacy.
Namely, some users express dismay that ambiguous sync setting have seen years of bookmarks disappear.
From a privacy perspective, there is also an issue raised where bookmarks are synced in unencrypted plain text.
The author has explained they are too busy to address issues and as an open source project invited others to not just raise issues but also help fix them.
Fair enough, but for now this addon should not be used by those concerned about unintended data loss or privacy.
Antwort des Entwicklersgeschrieben am vor 5 TagenHello Jason,
Your comment includes some untruths that I'd like to rectify.
I am not "too busy to address issues". I intend too look into all issues, which also what my auto-response says, but may not always do so in a timely manner, because I have a job.
You cite open issues that have been opened several months after the current version of this software has been released. This, to me, suggests that these involve some form user error. This is not why I haven't looked into them, I will, but it should give you pause about suggesting this addon to not be used by those concerned about unintended data loss or privacy.
I wish you all the best. Maybe you will try floccus after all :)

Aber, der Einrichtungsvorgang, und die verschiedenen Fragen nach der Ordnerstruktur, haben sich mir nicht erschlossen, und dass führte letztlich dazu, dass auf meinen beiden Rechnern, deren Browser ich mit meiner Nextcloud-App synchen wollte, ALLE TAPS, JE LESEZEICHEN-ORDER geöffnet worden sind, was meine Maschine fast hätte zusammenbrechen lassen.
Ich habe zuletzt, bei der Einrichtung eine Auswahl getroffen (Reiter synchen), von der ich hoffte, dass keine Lesezeichendatei angelegt werden muss, sondern nur die Reiter abgeglichen werden.
Lange Rede, kurzer Sinn: ich bin normal blöd/ klug und habe es nicht hinbekommen (trotz Versuch die Schritte der Einrichtung auf http://floccus.org/ zu befolgen.
Antwort des Entwicklersgeschrieben am vor 5 TagenHi Ralf,
I'm sorry you couldn't intuit how to set the settings correctly. This may be an issue with the German translation. I will look into this.

And I install floccus to sync my chrome bookmark, but it failed because it cannot scan firefox nightly's bookmark and change it. I wish you test it in firefox nightly, please, I really need it, thanks!! I dont know if firefox nightly supports extentions scan bookmarks now. Its 2023 now!🤣
Antwort des Entwicklersgeschrieben am vor 6 MonatenThank you for your review!
> I dont know if firefox nightly supports extentions scan bookmarks now. Its 2023 now!
It's really frustrating I know, but Firefox for Android does not support extensions that work with bookmarks. Even though it's 2023 :( You can use the floccus android app though if it's any consolation. Cheers!

You can use your own Nextcloud server, or store the bookmarks encrypted on Google Drive or another cloud service. Either way, you know who has access to them, which is a big bonus for privacy.
The desktop browser add-on is mostly set-and-forget and you just use your regular browser bookmarks. For as many browsers as you want. I've been using it to sync between Firefox and Chrome since 2020, and while it had some problems syncing early on, it's been solid for so long I can't even *remember* the last time I encountered a sync error.
The mobile app syncs your bookmarks to itself, since most mobile browsers don't let add-ons access their bookmarks. It took all of 30 seconds to set up the Android version with my Nextcloud, and the initial sync didn't take much longer. The UI is simple, letting you do the basics of adding, removing, editing and moving bookmarks. They open in your default browser, and you can share a link from your browser to Floccus to bookmark it.
