Browser bookmark sync
There's no way to synchronize bookmarks and there's no developer APIs to enable this. iTunes allows for local bookmark sync with IE or Safari with the iPhone/iPad or you can sync with a cloud service.
I do use both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, and both are tied with my Microsoft account. I'm surprised to see the synchronisation does not synchronize internet explorer favorites between Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Please include this in a further version. The synchronisation should include :
- update favorites on Windows Phone 8 to reflect what is been created on the desktop, including the folders (and those should be added in Metro UI for Windows 8 as well)
- update favorites on Windows 8 should allow to reflect the favorites added in Windows Phone 8 on the go.
Alternatively, favorite folder would be on the skydrive and accessible similarly to the document folder when connected to a PC on USB, or included in the skydrive folders.
Ability to sync bookmarks from IE 10 to live.com then be able to pull those down to your WP7 phone and vice versa.
Be nice to have favorites backed up so if you get a new device they automatically sync back like contacts.

Please for the love of god sync the bookmarks between all devices with the same Microsoft account signed in...

Yes complete favourite sync between PC, phone, Surface and Xbox. Otherwise not much of an ecosystem.

Just to be clear about what I feel is missing: Since moving my W8 Favorites folder to SkyDrive I am able to see my W8 Favorites on my WP8 using the WP8 SkyDrive app. But when I select a favorite in SkyDrive on WP8 it displays the URL rather than invoking the browser as I expect/want. J

Sync Favorites and Browsing History. Should be seamless transition between PC and Windows Phone.

I agree and would be perfect if you'll can find your favorites also online, in outlook.com or skydrive for example (or new service)
yes yes yes
I went from blackberries in house to WP8 because I upgrade all our home computers to windows 8 and I thought this eco system existed with the phones the same as we have between computers at home. disappointing!

Gotta be careful here, I don't want all my favourites from my desktop syncing to my phone. How about the option to select what favourites to sync?
YES! What "ecosystem" if favorites don't sync? That's crazy!

I need to sync internet favourites (e.g. to SkyDrive) so i do not have to create them from scratch every time i change phone/phone breaks.

the problem with chrync is that it doesn't sync any encrypted data...
Many people can't sync chrome between computers if everything is not encrypted

Since users can use Windows Live Mesh to sync IE Favorites between PCs, adding Windows Phone to the list of devices looks completely feasible.
This is an excellent suggestion and I would love to see it implemented in the next major update.
Chrync syncs your Chrome bookmarks, recently viewed web pages, etc. down to Windows Phone by talking the Chrome sync protocol natively.
Even opera supports this even on the last build for wm
yup, this was the only reason to opera on desktop. because you also could use the favorites on the wm6.1
ie 9 on desktop computers can sync favorites, so why not the ie9 on mobile?
coming from the iphone. one of the best features was the cloud sync of bookmarks with phone and PC.
