  • Great tip! I’m switching my “normal” browsing over to chrome so this will be a nice feature.

  • Hi Gabe, Chrome is really a good browser. You will experience the difference, and sync bookmarks feature will definitely help.

    I tried this, yesterday, and today. When I try logging into my google account I get “Invalid username or password”.
    I am entering in the correct username and password. I loogged out of google docs and relogged in using my username and password (exactly the same as the one I am trying with the sync, and it works with google docs).
    I searched on the Chrome blog and help sites, but can’t find anything but how to reset the password.
    Could this be some goofiness from being behind a proxy server at work (even though it works with google docs)?
