If you install Chrome browser on your phone, and you are signed into your google account, they will be available from within your browser.

If you use Chrome on your PC, you can also install Chrome to Phone app on your phone, and a corresponding extension in your desktop Chrome, then you can instantly send links to your phone from your PC - including Google maps locations.

you can also do the opposite, with Phone to Google Chrome

requires a dropbox account, though, but thats handy too

There's also an app called ChromeMarks which syncs your Chrome bookmarks to your phone..

Yes, I have this but I don't use it anymore now I have Chrome. Good thing about ChromeMarks though is that you can choose which browser to open the bookmark with. Useful if you have several browsers installed.

I'm finding sync needs to be enabled for my Chrome bookmarks to show up, not sure if that's standard.

It's no biggie having to enable sync when using the browser, just seems odd.

What sync does is sycns your bookmarks and open tabs across multiple devices.

I can start reading something at home, get up and leave somewhere and finish reading on my phone when I get there. It's quite amazing.
