I am forced to use Opera instead of Safari on windows, and would like to sync my bookmarks with MobileMe. Is this at all possible?

The real question is why aren't you using opera on the mac. Opera is way more powerful than safari. – Fake Name Jan 17 '11 at 10:20

Not with MobileMe's built in sync function, it only works with Safari.

You could use Opera's Link, which might work ok for what you're after -

Can I use other browsers to access my bookmarks?

Yes, you can log into a web-based user interface using Opera browsers, including Opera for Mac/PC, Opera Mobile or Opera Mini. You can also access your bookmarks using other Web browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari. (Opera faq)

Like dropbox, you could simlink the Opera bookmark file into your iDisk. Something like ln -s /Users/.../bookmark.dat /Volumes/iDisk/bookmark.dat

If you want cross-browser bookmark sync - wait for xmarks or similar to come to both of those browsers, so far ti's probably only firefox and chrome.

xMarks works fine with Safari, if you don't mind system preference plugins. – glenstorey May 29 '11 at 3:52
