Con Beta interface is confusing for first-timers
The interface is very opinionated (this is a good thing). But it is not obvious how to map user's own GTD variant onto the one the author has in mind. Maybe after it is in production, there will be better on-boarding.
Con No native apps
Con In Beta (development)
Con Does not sync passwords
If youre afraid due to the lack of password syncing with xbrowser, this problem is easily fixable by using myki password manager. It supports all major operating systems with secure features that work alongside xbrowsersync perfectly. myki is available as a chrome extension, and for android, iphone, mac, windows, and more!
Con No iOS support
It doesn't support anymore iOS.
Con Doesn't support new Firefox for Android
Maybe not the developer's fault but since using Firefox as main browser, the cross platform niche can't be satisfied. Will be looking to jump ship once the extension is added to the very limited pool Firefox Android currently has.
