Chrome Bookmark Sync Hits

Good news, Chrome users. The Chromium Blog has just announced the launch of bookmark syncing! This new feature will allow you to keep the same set of bookmarks on all of your computers, even if they aren't in the same building. Bookmark sync stores your bookmarks alongside Google Docs, so you can port them over to any computer you want, wherever you are.

If you want to activate this feature, the only way to do it currently is to launch a dev version of Chrome with “-enable-sync command-line flag”. If you have no idea how on earth to do that, don't worry. TechCrunch expects Bookmark Sync to come to the regular release channel very soon. You'll just have to wait this out a few more days.

Once again, Google gets big kudos for releasing an extremely useful feature for free. Apple's Safari browser has a syncing option, but it requires MobileMe, which actually costs money. As always, the 'free' option is far superior to the one that requires a credit card.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. 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.
