Google Chrome 8 Password Sync

If you visit your sync options, you will now see an option which will allow you to sync your passwords to your Google account. This is definitely something I have been waiting for a long time and will make my life easier when it comes to switching between multiple computers.

Chrome 8.0.552.18 has been updated for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. You can see this feature by visiting Options -> Personal Stuff. If you want to add an extra layer of security to your data, you might want to encrypt it using the "Encryption" tab in the Sync window. This will ensure that your data can only be synced if you enter the encryption key.
