Yes, but starting with Android 4.4, they've removed it...i don't know the reason, maybe they wanted us to use Chrome.

Maybe. But mobile Chrome sucks big time. The Browser is way better.

Hi georgeiulian89. Thanks for this.


If you have a TI backup from CM10 you can restore the app from there instead. Look for the app "Google Bookmarks Sync" (com.google.android.syncadapters.bookmarks) and restore. I've checked mine and the amount of permissions it has is crazy.

Chrome for mobile needs some serious work. Whenever I have it installed, it screws up my phone's ability to save my choice for default app. Everytime I open a link, youtube video, etc., it asks me what to use, 'Internet' 'Chrome' or 'Youtube' yes I cleared cache and data for all 3 apps. It's either a TouchWiz glitch or a chrome glitch, either way stock browser + this apk = awesome. No clue why 'Internet' sync is missing in KitKat, very odd.

This apk worked perfectly for me on Verizon Note 2, i605 running KitKat 4.4.2. Thanks OP
