Google upgraded the beta version of its Chrome browser yesterday, adding integrated bookmark synchronization and boasting of a 30% speed improvement over the current production edition.

Chrome 4.0.223.16, which runs only on Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7, includes the ability to sync bookmarked sites across multiple computers, said Idan Avraham and Anton Muhin, a pair of Google software engineers who announced the beta on a company blog late on Monday.

Bookmark sync requires that all the machines being kept in step run the Chrome beta, and that the user has a Google account, such as a Gmail username and password.  The browser syncs bookmarks using Google Docs, the company's Web-based application suite.

There's no way to set the interval between synchronizations, but Avraham and Muhin said that "any changes you make to your bookmarks will appear on all synced computers in just a few seconds."  Google is using the same servers based on XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol) that power its Google Talk instant messaging service for Chrome's sync.

Most other browsers can sync bookmarks only with special add-ons, such as the free Xmarks, which is compatible with Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE), Mozilla's Firefox, Apple's Safari, and Chrome.
