Browser - Phone Bookmark Sync Indecision

Surprisingly, there seems to be no perfect solution for me to synchronise website bookmarks between my web browser (Google Chrome) and my Android phone. Maybe it's too much to ask for something free, secure and effortless.

Many people suggest PhoneMarks, which seems to be nice, but I just don't want to grant my Google Docs access to other companies than, well, Google. People also say that Dolphin Browser supports bookmark sync but it seems to use bookmarks in my Google account as well.

Maybe the problem is I'm so used to Google Chrome. The soon-to-be-released Firefox 4 looks quite nice and has a native bookmark sync feature (to Firefox Mobile). Still, I don't know if it will convince me to leave Google Chrome.

org.eclipse.gef 0.0.0 required for installing Android Development Tools on Eclipse 3.5.1

Today I wanted to try the Android SDK on my Ubuntu Karmic Koala, so I followed the instructions in the following URL.

I thought that an IDE would be useful so I installed Eclipse 3.5.1 and tried to install the Android Development Tools, or ADT. However, an error "org.eclipse.gef 0.0.0 required" (or something like that) appeared.

After googling for a while, I found a URL for the GEF SDK, which is Eclipse's Graphic Editing Framework, as the following URL.

So I added this update into Eclipse by

  1. Go to the menu 'Help',
  2. Choose 'Install New Software',
  3. Place the GEF SDK updates URL into the box after 'Work with:',
  4. Choose the right version of updates in the box below (for me, GEF SDK 3.5.1),
  5. Click 'Next',
  6. After Eclipse calculates all the dependencies, just click 'Finish' and let it install the plugin.

After installing GEF SDK, return to installation of ADT. You should be able to install it now.
