Google Chrome password sync has been a long time coming, first taking shape in May 2010 Chromium builds
. It's popped up before
in official Chrome builds, but never appeared to be functional. Now, however, password sync has come back to the Dev Channel -- and it seems to be working for some. On my own system, Chrome's status indicator spun endlessly and I was never able to authenticate -- forcing me to cancel the process and leave my sync options as they were. Sebastian, however, successfully logged in and activated password sync with no problem.
With password sync so close being finished, maybe Google will start working on letting us sync our custom search engines...
