Bookmark sync is one of the best features of the Android stock browser (and Chrome for ICS devices), but there's one major flaw with it: what if you don't use the stock browser (or you don't have ICW)? Well, if Dolphin's your default browser, we have good news - there's now an extension in the Chrome Web Store that allows Dolphin to sync all of your desktop bookmarks to your mobile, and vice-versa.

Setup seems pretty straightforward, but you need to have Dolphin Connect set up beforehand. After that, just download and install the Dolphin Bookmarks extension from the Web Store, click the Dolphin icon next to the Omnibox, and login to start syncing.

The nice thing here is that this is a two-way sync. Add a bookmark on your mobile and it will sync to your desktop browser; similarly, add a bookmark on your desktop browser and it will sync back to your phone.

So, if you're ready for all of your bookmarks to be accessible when you need them, hit the link below to get started.

    can't get it to sync my desktop chrome bookmarks to dolphin. I'd say it's either very tricky to operate or doesn't work.

    I got it to sync my bookmarks, but not all of them showed up. Then it started duplicating my folders. Stay away.

    Well that's disappointing, I've been waiting for either ics or something like this... Oh well :-\

    Spent a lot of time on this, and have concluded that it only syncs your DOLPHIN BOOKMARKS (NOT CHROME) to your Chrome browser, not the other way around. ie., on Chrome, you'll be able to access your bookmarks that were on your dolphin browser, which is worth zero to me. Sigh, back to Chromemarks.

    I used to like dolphin, but with the security issues from a while back, the really (REALLY) buggy extensions, and the highly unreliable and flaky syncing...I just don't care to use them anymore. It even feels slower and more bloated than competitors now. It stays installed so I can let "guest" users at it for their browsing, but I've been happily staying with Firefox/Chrome/Opera (not in this order).

    The sync is bunk. Does not work at all... you CAN sync Dolphin bookmarks, but the Chrome sync does nothing. Most likely trying other Browsers now... as I need my home/office Chrome bookmarks to sync.

    Looks like this was withdrawn as it was unreliable (as reported by earlier posts here). Looks like they are working on fixing the issues so keep an eye open for the re release.

    ive just spent the last 6 hrs trying to sync bookmarks on my android phone. Every plugin/app failed to import them properly. duplicated empty folders, or just empty ones, or so badly scrambled you can't find the bookmark needed. Galaxy SII running ICS 4.0.3.

    If you ask me, that app name and icon are asking for trouble...
