how to synchronize two computers' favorites?

i have two laptops, one for home use and the other one is for outside as the second one is lighter.

i add new favorite quite often, so how can i make them synchronize the favorites automatically?

I assume your talking about IE? Google chrome has this feature which you can read about here. It syncs bookmarks across different computers quite nicely. If i have missed your question completely let me know.

Right, you can use Windows Live Mesh 2011 to sync your favorites on IE9.

...as has Maxthon. This feature is great and certainly helps when updating to new versions, or if you loose you loose all data within maxthon. Favorites and browser settings are saved on the server and can easily be recovered when needed.

thanks all, i've installed Live Mesh on both computers and now both of them have identical favorites.

so if i remove one link from favorites from computer A, then computer B will have that link removed automatically right? rather than the removed link automatically add back to computer A since computer B still have it.
