iOS 7 is already available to download. If you haven't upgraded yet, then you might want to read our sister site's post about the coolest features of iOS 7. But unknown to most of us, the update also added some nifty features to Apple's iCloud Control Panel for Windows.
If you happen to mix Windows and iOS devices, then you can probably relate to the hassle of having to manually import/ export your browser bookmarks. This, of course, is not a problem when you're using Internet Explorer as a primary browser, as the iCloud Control Panel already supports bookmark syncing.
But it looks like Chrome and Firefox users can finally sync their bookmarks to iOS devices as well. As first noted by Apple Insider, version 3.0 now allows bookmark syncing to Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
In order for this to work, you'll need to download the respective browser extensions on Chrome and Firefox which can be downloaded here(Chrome) and here (Firefox). The next step now is to bring this feature to the Mac.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
