Bookmarks Sync Feature In Chrome on Its Way

by Chrome Blog on August 4, 2009

According to a post on the Chrome Developer’s Group, by Tim Steele (google software engineer), Google Chrome will soon let the users synchronize their bookmarks accross multiple computers. This new feature would be tested on the developer’s build of Chrome and then released in the next few days.

As per Tim’s post, this bookmarks synchronize feature will be using regular Google User Accounts to store & synchronize browser-based data.

We have built a library that implements the client side of our sync protocol as well as the Google server-side infrastructure to serve Google Chrome users and synchronize data to their Google account – Tim Steele

The new Google Chrome Bookmarks Sync, as it looks would impart some of the features of Mozilla Weave – an under development service that synchronizes the bookmarks, history, stored passwords etc accross multiple Firefox installations.

The Chrome Bookmarks Sync feature is like to clash head on with Xmarks – a 3rd party service that synchronises different kinds of user informations within major browsers such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc. Xmarks is set to be released for Google Chrome sometime latter this summer, and according to the official statement by its CEO James Joaquin, Xmarks will offer more than the inbuilt Chrome Sync feature and would also enable Chrome users to sync their data with other browsers as well.

Chrome Bookmark’s Sync : Looking Ahead

With the debut of  Google Chrome OS in coming months, one could believe that this new Bookmarks Sync feature will take a very prominent role accross the operating system. The chrome sync developer document states that the bookmarks sync feature would be available to users through a web interface attached with Google Docs and would also use a client-server messaging service similar to that of Gtalk.

From what you said at the end of this post, does this imply that the bookmark feature will not draw from (or contribute to) user’s existing Google Bookmarks account? I would love to have this be all working together.

Google Docs? I agree with Michael that syncing to Google Bookmarks would be great! Something similar to Firefox’ GMarks extension.

Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Admiring the persistence you put into your site and in depth information you offer. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material. Excellent read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

You might have even looked at the postings in the personals section. Also children that love video games do this for the same reason. And distortions in the template are
