Syncing Chrome Bookmarks with iCloud/iOS. Without using XMarks.
details
I've always used Safari for looks and because it syncs bookmarks with my iOS devices. But I can't argue that Chrome is more stable, if not a bit faster. Of course, the way to sync Chrome bookmarks with iOS is the classic XMarks workaround, but it's inelegant, and XMarks (oddly enough) eats up memory on my older MacBook.
