I want to open the bookmarks I saved in my PC to be seen from my cellphone's browser. So I need them synced. How can I do that, say with Nexus One?

Possible duplicate. I answered with Go Marks for that one. –  gary Oct 23 '10 at 15:42

Fennec (pre-release FireFox mobile) is supposed to have bookmark synch.

I haven't tested it, as the Fennec install keeps failing on my Incredible. :-(

I've tried this and it works, but Fennec was soo slow on my Samsung Vibrant (Galaxy S) that I uninstalled it. –  Will Z Oct 26 '10 at 22:21
    
This is how I do my browser sync. For info Fennec is out of beta now and officially called Firefox 4 which was fully released recently. It is now much slimmer and faster than the early betas were. market.android.com/details?id=org.mozilla.firefox –  GAThrawn Mar 31 '11 at 0:34

You can use an app from Google named Chrome2Phone : http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.google.android.apps.chrometophone.

That's a pretty good one !

Pretty sure this only lets you share one link at a time, rather than do a proper sync? –  GAThrawn Mar 31 '11 at 0:35
    
@GAThrawn yup, that's correct. It also requires you auth your Google account with a server in eastern Europe... a bit on the scary side, IMHO –  MaddHacker Jul 10 '12 at 11:39

Chrome for Android is now out of Beta, and not only does it sync your bookmarks, but also lets you open a browser tab that you have open on another device.

It doesn't quite "sync" the way I'd expect, though: the bookmarks and tabs from your desktop machine are only available to you on the phone if your phone has "sync" turned on. Unlike, say, gmail, which makes your emails available regardless, and only requires "sync" on to catch up. –  offby1 Jul 10 '12 at 0:24

Transmute "will quickly and easily sync the bookmarks from the standard web browser on your Android device with Google Bookmarks." (untested)

The Delicious site has an Android app, so any bookmarks you save there will be available on your phone.

Another option is to use Opera on the PC and phone, Opera Link will then sync your bookmarks.

can you link to any of these? –  Michael Paulukonis Sep 23 '10 at 12:19

I have been using an app/Chrome extension combo called "PhoneMarks". It syncs between the two to a special document in Google docs, making it easy to edit.

Phonemarks looks really nice. However cannot seem to get it to sync on a Honeycomb tablet. Anyone have this working? –  nwaltham Dec 21 '11 at 12:30

Don't forget to mention that the xmarks/lastpass bundle also saves and syncs passwords. –  Flow Aug 29 '11 at 15:48
