Major Update to Weave Prototype, 0.2 Development Milestone

Chris Beard

86

Weave is a Mozilla Labs’ project to develop a coherent framework and platform for deeply integrating online services with the browser. Our goals are to enhance the Firefox user experience, increase user control over their personal information, and provide new opportunities for developers to build innovative online experiences.

As a development milestone, 0.2 is a major update to the Weave client and server prototypes that significantly builds upon previous versions.

Major Updates and Features

  • Significant reworking of the installation and setup experience.
  • Support for major browser data types, including bookmarks, browsing history, cookies, saved passwords, saved form data, and tabs.
  • Intelligent scheduler for determining when to synchronize data between browser and server to improve performance.
  • RSA public/private keys and AES encryption of all user data on the client side through NSS, the crypto library used by Firefox.
  • End-to-end encryption, with initial support for secure sharing of data with a 3rd party and with XMPP-based notifications of shares.

Get Weave 0.2

For detailed information on the release, installation instructions, and known issues, please read the Weave 0.2 Release Notes.
Note: Weave 0.2 is not yet fully compatible with all Linux distributions. Please see the release notes for details and workarounds.

Get Involved

We’ll be rolling out prototypes of various components of the framework, gathering feedback, and hosting a series of discussions and sessions on the Mozilla Labs site to plan, design, and further develop Weave.

  • Learn more about Weave.
  • Discuss, debate, and add to the design in the Weave forum.
  • Join us in #labs on irc.mozilla.org.

    BTW: “Server error” message still appears during last account creation step..

    Is anybody solving this?

    If you have NoScript add-on enabled, you have to enable recaptcha.net in order to make CAPTCHA working during Weave account creation.

    It worked nicely for a while but then like quite a few of the comments it slowed down to the point where I have often have to cancel the sync. Somtimes it does complete the sync but when I open my bookmarks I keep getting the marks from weeks ago, so it seems like they are not being updated (well not for me). I check the logs and the error was:

    Exception caught: Component returned failure code: 0x8052000e (NS_ERROR_FILE_IS_LOCKED) [nsINavHistoryService.addVisit]

    Great idea but needs a bit more work.

    After the update I just got about 10 mins ago 0.2.2 it now wont let me sync. I have the same complaint as everyone else, when you close FF the window stays open forever trying to sync. If you really need a solution that works, I would stick with FF2 and GBS. Weave has potential, but not in this Alpha stage.

  44. Jason wrote on ::

    Wonderful addon, much better than GBS, in my opinion. The only flaws that I have right now are that the syncing, after closing firefox, takes way too long – I’ve tried on multiple computers. Also, the automatic sign-in would be best if this were done stealthily. Other than that, it’s all good! A few questions, what type of addons will be available for the weave?? And, lastly, when will the next release take place…humor me and give me a ballpark figure :)

    Thanks CBEARD and the rest of the Mozilla Labs teams!

  45. Craig J wrote on :

    Takes forever to login, although when it finally manages it (and syncs for about 10 minutes) it seems to work OK.

    It definitely needs the dialogue stealthing, though; when I set ‘login automatically’, I want it to do exactly that, not give me several pop-ups every time I open Firefox. (several because the login fails a few times first)

    The syncing dialogue is incredibly annoying as well; when Firefox is closed, I’d appreciate it if you made it close weave as well, and continue syncing next time the browser is opened for an extended period of time.

    The concept is fantastic, I love the idea of it, but it really needs a lot of work and revision before it is likely to be embraced by the masses. I shall look forward to further developments!

    Trying Weave on Firefox 3 Portable (Portableapps.com) and I can’t seem to sync. No messages in the logs, just unable to sync.

    Might also be because I’m running this behind a corporate firewall that has a proxy. All proxies are specified correctly in the main preferences for Firefox, and I can browse the internet as normal.

    I don’t no whether this is a problem because of the ‘portable’ configuration, or because of the proxy. I might try getting Firefox 3 installed so it isn’t portable, but I can’t see this happening.

    Compiling Weave for x86_64 works without any problems whatsoever. Weave is syncing right now (painfully slow – syncing history is probably at fault, there’s just so much data there).

    Compiling Weave on a Gentoo system, on the other hand, is a royal pain. I tried to use the system’s mozilla SDK, but there are two big problems with this:
    1) Weave assumes that NSPR and NSS are part of the SDK. Under Gentoo, they’re not. They’re independent.
    2) Weave assumes the SDK directory is writeable. The system SDK under Gentoo is owned by root and of course not writeable for a normal user.

    And for some reason, the system unit test fails because Utils.prefs is undefined (or perhaps Utils itself). Isn’t Utils part of FUEL? Could be that isn’t in the Gentoo xulrunner SDK either.

    It took 3 tries to setup my new account, and then it failed on one computer at least 10 times before it started working. The reCaptcha seems unnecessary, if someone takes the time to download the addon what’s the chance of spam? Also I -hate- the dialog box when closing Firefox. I’m on a shared computer with multiple Firefox profiles and if I need to get off quickly because someone else has something to do, I usually close my Firefox and they can open theirs and there is no wasted time in between. Now it has a painfully long sync time. Can we get an option for this? I would love to turn off the sync at end and make it in the background somehow like Foxmarks does.

    Speaking of which I’ve had to switch to Foxmarks for now. Bookmarks are the most important thing for me to sync right now, and with the shortcomings on Weave at the moment it’s just not working. I hope to come back to Weave when you’ve worked out the usability issues and have added extension and preference, especially about:config settings?, support. Then it will be everything I want to sync in a package that hopefully works.

    I found that with ABP (Ad-Block Pro) enabled, I get a white box in the CAPTCHA window. Disabling ABP for *.mozilla.com seemed to fix the issue.

    I can’t say I like the dialog when closing firefox. I can’t explicitly tell weave not to sync when closing, and the dialog never seems to go away without me closing it. I haven’t determined if it’s doing anything yet, but the CPU is 0% for that process.

    The initial regiester CAPTCHA does not work for me, probably because I am running Debian Lenny, because it worked fine with wine.
    Do other people have issues with GNU/Linux and weave?

    I’ve the same problem.
    On my first pc (vista) no problem, on the second (xp) pc weave the passphrase is not accepted.

    I’ve already set up my account on my home computer (Windows XP SP2) and am trying to set it up on my work computer (PowerBook OS X 10.4 PPC) but it’s not accepting my pass phrase. I know I’m using the right one, but it’s just not connecting. I’ve tried reinstalling the extension, but it still hasn’t worked.

    log in problem for a couple of days. Today,I update it, still not working. Account creating process is ok. But cannot sign in. I am not sure it is because of my University proxy. But Google Sync was working perfectly under this proxy before.

    these two errors dominate my activity log:

    ERROR Remote command has GUID that already exists locally. Dropping command.

    Exception: Could not acquire lock (lock already held)

    it appears I am unable to completely sync
    any suggestions?

    Tried twice, failed twice at creating an account.

    FAIL

    And the try again thing doesn’t work.

    The old version worked fine.

    It feels like it has a lot of usability issues. The concept is very like google’s discontinued browsersync. So a proven concept.

    Maybe a design question is the weave logo on the statusbar, it really annoyes me. The coloring is displeasing. Nonetheless it is a fine product.

    Keep up the good work.

    The CAPTCHA worked fine during sign up here. I hate that annoying sync dialogue box when you close Firefox though. Apart from that, this version is a great improvement to 0.1.

    The Weave account creation CAPTCHA image doesn’t appear. Without it it’s impossible to make a new user account.
