i wonder if chromium with a sync config directory is a viable option over firefox with ffsync

I do that with all my programs between my desktop and my two laptops, I basically rsync the entire ~ (except ~/.cache bc it's kinda useless anyway) and everything works great


you could also setup a NFS server accessible only from a vpn set up as a local net (for security reasons) and put some of your home config dirs in it via symlinks ^^

@Elisa having setup NFS at work for my students, I wouldn't recommend. NFS doesn't like it when a programme tries to open/stat a lot of files in short and random bursts. Sometimes even hangs waiting for the client to retry after a timeout.

I really prefer having a local copy, in the same way you do with rsync, except i use syncthing. I find it reliable as a "setup and forget" kinda tool.
