By accepting this invitation you'll get:

* A free download of the Picasa software for uploading your photos to the web in one or two clicks.
* Your own shareable Picasa Web Albums homepage showing all your public albums.
* Enough free storage to post and share approximately 1000 photos (an option for upgrading to more space is also available).
* Big, high-resolution pictures that set a new standard for online viewing. You can even download a friend's photos off the web to print at home using Picasa.
* Fun easy-to-use online tools, like captions, comments, rotate, zoom, and full-screen slideshows.

Google Launched Picasa Web Albums

Wednesday, June 14th, 2006

Be first to sign up for Picasa Web Albums by Google.

Just pick a bunch of your photos from Picasa and upload them into a web album in a couple of clicks. Once they’re online, it’s super-easy to share them – click the “Share” button from anywhere on the site or, just email friends the URL for your public gallery.

If you have never heard of Picasa, here's what Google said about it:

... it’s Google’s free desktop photo management software. Picasa is a quick download that makes it easy for people to organize and edit their pictures using something that’s simple and clutter-free. It’s all about the photos.

You might want to take a look at the sample album before you sign up.

Note that this is also a limited test, so you will have to wait for Google's reply after you submitted your email to them. I suppose this is Google's solution to prevent server load problems faced by other previous projects such as Google Analytics.

Remember to send me your Picasa Web Albums link after you signed up!

Google Browser Sync

This is the one extension that makes you feel like you are using the same browser in different PCs. If you are looking for other option, you will have to get a portable Firefox.

Google Browser Sync for Firefox is an extension that continuously synchronizes your browser settings – including bookmarks, history, persistent cookies, and saved passwords – across your computers. It also allows you to restore open tabs and windows across different machines and browser sessions.
