Because of internal sync of Chrome (9.0.597) does not work works for me the bad (part of the bookmarks synced, and some not), the question arose about synchronize the entire profile using Dropbox. And if you Win I found the profile and moved it to the Dropbox folder by putting on him a symlink in Mac OS X 10.6.6 I this profile the day the fire (spotlight) can not find. Cleaned even by hand all the directories where he could be doing.

On the Internet write that profile resides here: ~/Library/Application Support/Chrome/Profiles/xxxxxxxx.default/ however — there is no way at all (Application Support, neither Google nor Mozilla nor Google Chrome).

And now a question to experts: where have encoded your profile Chrome?

UPD. Profile found here

With the help of symlinks got Chrome via dropbox to another profile, bookmarks appeared, what was required, there was Taba, which is also very good (in standard Chrome sync through Google account sync tabs are also not working, I suspect that everything else worked through time or not working at all), but the extension icons disappeared from the panel (like the extensions, although space is allocated for each and when you hover over it is written that the page is not).


The question is how much is it to return (I would even sync did not, since a dozen of them and I their hands to put can)? Ie in fact the question becomes what to exclude from synchronization, so everything worked fine?..

And to search for all directories in the search settings you need to specify the "This Mac" and in the settings for "System Files"* select "are included":
\r
\rimage
\r
* "System Files" choose "Other...":
\r
\rimage

Google Chrome uses the built-in synchronization through googleaccount. In the Settings>Personal stuff. Without Dropbox. So storage space will be saved.

Hmm, don't know how to force dropbox to sync some directories and files (for example do not need to synchronize the cache, and much more to the profile once).
Perhaps because of the extension are generated in the folder type "jbdjgdkojiakdhlhfcaohpfgjgemcegi" they were not synchronized in these folders is empty at the moment, and it should be checked.
