    Can anyone here tell me where are the bookmarks from "Google Chrome" stored on the pc. Similar to IE storing bookmarks in my user folders.

    I know that we can export bookmarks as html from chrome, but I want to know if they are stored physically on the system or not?

    Reason - If i forget to export them as html and my system crashes, then can i restore them from PC backup??

    have you noticed how hard they are trying to push ppl to sign into google chrome ( using your google account) and give them explicit peek into your browser data? :p

    Oh yes, It is difficult to maintain privacy. I try to logout of mails or have a dummy account for signin.

    If you are using Google Bookmark Sync then it can access your bookmarks not otherwise I suppose.
