Google Chrome now available for iOS.

Just activate (bookmarks) synchronisation on your PC and iPad. Go to New Tab > Favorites > Computer Favorites.

From the App Store description:

  • Sign in to Chrome to sync your open tabs, bookmarks, passwords, and omnibox data from your computer to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Pick up right where you left off.
  • Send pages from Chrome on your computer to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with one click and read them on the go, even if you’re offline.

If you want them synced (but not built-in Mobile Safari), you may use XMarks.

Assuming you want to stick with Safari on the iPad, you'll need to sync via iTunes.

Take your Chrome bookmarks and save them to an HTML bookmark file. Then import these into Safari (on a Mac) or Internet Explorer (on Windows). Then, in your iTunes sync options, under the Info "tab", choose to sync your bookmarks.

What I personally do, though, is to use Pinboard to store all of my bookmarks online. I can access it from any device with no syncing required.

Also assuming you want to stick to Safari on the iPad, and that you have should be able to right click on a URL in Chrome and click "Add to Reading List". There is probably a way to do this with automator/Apple script for your already stored bookmarks, if you save them to an external file. – cm2 Nov 10 '11 at 23:50

Use the Apollo browser for iPad.

Maybe someone might be interested. I found a simple solution for accessing Chrome bookmarks online. It only requires Dropbox account (or any similar service with a public folder).

You can find details on the Chrome Bookmarks Online github page.

Doesn't this require some additional software? – patrix Dec 27 '13 at 10:34
