    Somewhere on my GS2 there is a setting which permits Google to store websites visited / bookmarks and passwords etc.

    I presume this is via a sync'ing method?
    Is this safe to use as I do online banking and share dealing etc using my phone and I don't want my log in details sitting on a Google server somewhere?

    I assume it's safe. You have the option of delete all saved data, in any form from the phone whenever you like. Same as in chrome. It's google and therefore, if they did store our details, someone would have exposed them by now - or criminals would have already stolen these details. Way to test is save a password and username. Make sure it automatically puts it in for you and works. Then cut connectivity and delete the saved data from the settings on the browser. If they're stored locally, they'll be deleted - which I believe they are.
