    I noticed it was checked off on my settings so I re-checked it and now it's been spinning and taking 50% of my resources.

    I just installed Chrome to replace Firefox which has been acting like a 90 year old man.

    Chrome is so much better I'm amazed.

    But when I check sync it just spins and spins...

    Any suggestions?

    Mine worked also. If you use the 2 step authentication that may give some issues. I have that enabled in Gmail/Google that but as long as each PC is authenticated it seems to be OK.

    Can you explain that? I have no idea how to enable it in Google. And what's two step authentication?

    I don't recall ever syncing mine, but since the day I got my Nexus my bookmarks from chrome have been tied to the app browser through my gmail account

    I just went into google and it says I have 12,933 bookmarks which is about 12,900 too many.

    That may be the issue.
