We all know and love xmarks for keeping Firefox bookmarks sync'd across computers, but...

Almost everyone at our company has switched to Chrome. Has anyone found any tools to synchronize users' bookmarks in Chrome? What about hacks to the registry and/or user profiles?

Or do we just need to wait for the plug-in model on Chrome 2?

Because Chrome now has bookmark sync, built-in. – Portman Nov 25 '09 at 5:12

Just as side note: I'm using the Delicious service for bookmarking sites. It's browser and machine independant.

From the about page:

Instead of having different bookmarks on every computer, Delicious makes it easy to have a single set of bookmarks kept in sync between all of your computers. Even if you're not on a computer you own, you can still get to your bookmarks on the Delicious website.


I found a guide to using the online Google Bookmarks with Chrome that allow them to be searchable. This should also work across computers if you set it up on both.


You can now use bookmark sync

It is under the the wrench menu and requires Google account as the bookmarks are stored in your Google docs. You can actually see a folder "Google Chrome" and access your bookmarks from Docs.


There is no plug-in for Google Chrome, yet. From the source:

Apparently, a Google developer conference scheduled for May 27th will include a session on developing extensions for Chrome, which leads Google Operating System to conclude that we’ll see the extensions platform go live on or before that date.

That doesn't preclude someone from writing a tool to sync bookmarks, however. – Portman May 4 '09 at 4:29

Is this internally at the company only? If so, the bookmarks should be stored in the user profile (appdata) anyway - so have that redirected to a share for the users, or use roaming profiles?
