I was reading a thread on another forum, where someone was asking about an Ad Blocker, for iPhone.

Then it got me thinking. I only ever use Google Chrome. And, that's because I have plenty of Bookmarks saved, and synched to multiple computers/devices.

Anyway, all that to ask, which browser do you use on iOS, and why?

To confirm, if I install the Chrome plugin, my Chrome favourites WILL sync with Safari on my iPhone/iPad?

A moment ago, I installed said plugin, on my Windows machine. Thus far, I do NOT see my favourites in Safari or my iPhone/iPad. I will check it again in a few hours. Maybe it needs time to sync...

Yes, there is a plug-in for Chrome for desktop. I think the system offered it to me when I installed iTunes and iCloud for Windows...

In addition to the Chrome extension, you need to install iCloud for Windows installed.

Sorry, I should have mentioned. I installed this, too. And, in the settings, I have "Bookmarks with Chrome" selected...

[doublepost=1560044859][/doublepost]As a test, I create a favourite in Safari, on my iPhone. However, I am yet to see it in Chrome, from Windows...

Hmm, not sure. It has been a while since I have used this. I can’t remember if it takes a while to sync or not. Hopefully someone else can chime in and give you better help.

Rather weird, I still do not have all my Chrome favourites in Safari.
And, I have the Windows iCloud app running.

Well, no one can say I didn't try :(

Well, I've just checked. My favorites are synced. However, I do not know how long it takes for that...
