By far the easiest way to do this is to use Firefox as your web browser everywhere, and then use Firefox's built in sync functionality.

Start by installing Firefox for ...

Direct editing of PDF content is something hard to achieve. As far as I know, the only solution for this is Qoppa PDF Notes.

As noted here, the bookmark sync used in Chrome is separate from Google Bookmarks. The app that Ivo Flipse suggests works only for google bookmarks. There is an app (which I haven't tried) that seems to allow access to Chrome bookmarks called ChromeMarks, but it isn't free. The way that I access my bookmarks is through google docs: go to docs.google.com, ...

There are apps that can backup your bookmarks, e.g. GMarks or TitaniumBackup (needs root). You could also sync the P500 bookmarks with Google (by default on) and also set up sync for a regular desktop chrome browser (very prominently accessible in the settings). You should be able to export your bookmarks then.

You'll have to copy and paste. I don't know why the long click doesn't work, but I assume because the url doesn't start with "http". I've found the easiest way to create bookmarklets is to do it on the PC and then import the bookmarks, or by copying the text of the js url to a text file, emailing or dropboxing it to my phone and then copying & ...

I don't see a FireFox extension that bring bookmarks to your phone permanently. There are a few suggestions in this question but they are designed more for sending links on a one-time basis.

Another way to more literally do what you're asking is to get a browser that supports tabs (for example, Google Chrome for Android, Dolphin Browser, or even the built in one) and open a new tab for each interesting link.

It looks like Google is afraid of being sued by Apple for using "square icon with rounded corners". There is an issu on http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=125076.

The icon that is displayed on the action bar is called a favicon. It's a low resolution (usually 16x16) icon made to be displayed next to the name in a bookmark bar.

This one was meant to be ...

If you use Firefox, you might want to take a look at Firefox 4 and Firefox 4 Mobile.
