"The project is an effort to enable users to synchronize and save data on Mozilla infrastructure. Mozilla introduced Weave in late 2007 and has had three big releases -- versions 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3.

"Downloads and usage of the client software, which is available as a browser add-on called Weave Sync, remain relatively modest. Dan Mills, Mozilla Weave lead told InternetNews.com that Weave has had over 30,000 downloads, and around 6,000 to 7,000 daily users.

"Still, ambitions remain high. Weave represents a new model for Mozilla, where users rely on Mozilla for more than just a browser interface, but for data as well. In some ways, the effort can be seen as competitive with social bookmarking sites like Delicious, though the overall goal for Weave is intended to be broader than just bookmarks."
