Browser synchronization (often simply called sync) is a free cloud service provided by a web browser vendor for sharing settings and data across multiple installs. This is typically used to maintain a consistent browser setup on multiple devices. The user must be logged-in to their account to sync a browser.
These are the items synchronized for browsers that provide this service. One notable exception is Chromium builds can no longer use Google Chrome sync.
