Google reveals plans to sync Chrome to the cloud

 google-syncAlthough the Mountain View firm gave up on the Google Browser Sync, an add-on for Firefox that allowed you to synchronize settings, bookmarks, history, cookies and passwords, Google now plans to reactivate the idea by bringing an integrated feature to Chrome that will store browser data with the user’s Google Account.

The infrastructure for synchronization is still in the early stages of development but is expected to arrive at the Chromium project by the end of this week. The company also revealed that the new functionality will be made available for DEV versions of Chrome later this month.

The synchronization system will have an initial focus on storing favorites in the cloud but Google hopes to expand the project to other data in the future. A web interface similar to Google Docs, protected by Google Account, will provide the possibility to manage and remotely access bookmarks through any browser.
