    Hi,

    I use Chrome on my Mac (and has 99% of my bookmarks), but use Safari on my iPhone and iPad, I was wondering if there is a way I can sync bookmarks between the two?

    Bookmark something on Safari on iOS -> Mirrored in Chrome on macOS.

    Any apps / extensions I can download and install to make this happen?

    Thanks

    Xmarks works most of the time, though it often throws error messages about sync conflicts so I've more or less given up on it at this point. YMMV.

    Be sure to switch off all other bookmark syncing if you use xmarks. I ended up with quite a mess of duplicates, luckily xmarks does have a backup/restore service.

    I just wish there was history sync, as I actually use that quite a lot on Chrome. It's just that my Macbook Air can't really handle Chrome these days.

    I just got Xmarks set up on Safari and Chrome on my Mac. Does Xmarks work in Ubuntu Touch? Or is there a way to make Google sync the bookmarks I’ve just added from Safari?
