Google had retired its “Google Browser Sync for Firefox” long back. It was quite expected with the Chrome coming into the playing field. Google has been constantly updating its browser(at least the developer channel) which is gong to be the basis for its future operating system dreams.
The recent dev build (18.104.22.168) released, has bookmark synchronisation which syncs your browsers bookmarks to Google Docs (read Google Drive) and not Google Bookmarks as one would expect.
So do you want to try the new feature ? First join Google Chrome’s dev channel, which includes a buggier, feature loaded and less polished version of Google Chrome.
Start Chrome with the “–enable-sync” flag. You will find a option in the Tools menu called “Sync my bookmarks…”. Login into your Google Account and the process should start immediately.
The synced bookmarks are placed in Google Docs in “My Folders”. This interface could be a precursor to GDrive which could act as online storage device.
