Google Chrome Finally Gets Bookmark Synchronization

I was playing around with Google Chrome 4 (the dev channel release) to see if anything had changed since I last tried it. A quick peek at their release blog revealed a post on Aug 17 that bookmark synchronization is now a feature! This is one of the reasons I haven’t been able to switch to Chrome from Firefox, so I was pretty excited to see it.

To use it, just follow the instructions on the Chromium blog post. Basically, you just need to be using version 4 (dev channel) of Chrome and launch it with the command-line option “–enable-sync”. Then, the option will appear in the wrench menu. Selecting it pops up a login window where you supply a Google account. The bookmarks will then be synchronized into that account’s special Google Docs section for Chrome bookmarks.
