    any syncing on any platform requires you to be logged into something. what you're really saying is that you're fine with being logged into your Google account but not your Microsoft account.
    Not quite. I don't have problems logging into an account...Google or Microsoft. But as far as I know, I.cannot log into Windows 7 with my Microsoft account and get my bookmarks. Cannot do it with Vista either. Cannot do it from within Linux, nor from my android devices. However with chrome and my Google account, I can do all of that. That is why I find IE unsuitable personally.

    Of the options given, I have to go with chrome, but there are other options out there... I like the torch browser in particular because of the downloading capabilities.

    Windows 8.1 64bit

    When Windows 8 came out I decided to try and use all Metro now called Modern Apps but found IE10 modern mode to be useless. Bookmark management and organization was very bad and no plugin support - LASTPass. IE11 has now upgraded the Bookmark management and you are now able to organize in folders - still no LASTPass. I definitely like IE11 and when and if they start allowing plugin's or get there password management working as good as LASTPass I will start to use it. I have used Firefox for years and loved it but let's face it they still do not have a working Modern version still in beta coming on to a year after Windows 8 has been out and no plugin support either. So, I have gone to Chrome. Chrome has a Modern version and supports plugins. I know LASTPass has a Windows 8 app but it has it's own built in browser that I do no care to use.

    My Chrome with plugin's to make it what I want.

    I use Opera for my main browser, sometimes IE10/11.

    The new Opera 15/16 (dev 17) seem to be coming along, they are using the Chromium engine now, still catching up with the previous Presto versions features.
