Bookmarking a website with Google Chrome appears to be identical to bookmarking a site with Firefox 3. Just click the star next the Web address and bingo it's saved. The real test will be how Google Chrome allows you to manage bookmarks.
Bookmarks along with other Chrome browser settings can be saved and retrieved in the Google cloud. This allows for anytime and anywhere access to your personal settings be it privacy, bookmarks, and history.
Google will incorporate an auto-complete function when typing in URLs directly into the browser. No word on whether this auto-completion feature will be related to "suggestion" feature added to Google search or something more similar to Firefox 3's Awesome Bar.
