Synchrognize settings

Hi everyone,

I find AdBlock very useful but there's somethings that bugs me. Every time I want to install AdBlock on a new computer or browser, everything I had disappeared. The settings and filters are the default ones. I have to copy my filters in a document.
If I use multiple browsers or computers, I have to make the modifications on each of them. It is really annoying.

I saw that AdBlock doesn't have a sync option but I wish it had. If it seem impossible for you to host the synchronization, maybe you could let us connect with Google Drive, Dropbox, Box or any other where AdBlock would read and write a config file.

Thank you :-)

    OK. I've passed this on to our developers and they may look into it!
