A build will be released in a week or so enabling sync.
More sync-related announces on the way?

I think we'll see the various bits of ChromeOS emerge in the wild bit by bit between now and the preview release of the OS.

That's a good thing, considering the time it takes to access a single Google bookmark.

I use the Gmarks extension for Firefox. If that didn't exist I probably wouldn't use Google Bookmarks at all.

Actually why don't they just add support for Google Bookmarks to Chrome? (IE and Firefox can get them through Google Toolbar) Would have saved them a lot of effort.

My guess is that, since Chrome is based in Chromium, they're avoiding linking it strongly with Google services and providing a opensource alternative that can be used with any other "port" of Chromium.
