Some time ago, we wrote about the site that was supposed to crash Internet Explorer but as it turns out, it was cheating and crashed pretty much every browser once you change browser identification.

With the recent announcement of Firefox OS for the handheld devices, Mozilla has made a minor splash in the tech community, mostly because of the superior alternatives that are already available (Android 4.1) and with more to come later this year: iOS 6 and Windows Phone 8 as well as BlackBerry OS 10.

Now here is something for the Google Chrome users. While we wait for the official application by the search giant itself, Atadore Sarl has created Chrync.
What is Chrync? It’s a simple app, which allows you to synch encrypted browser bookmarks, recently visited pages, passwords and even the open tabs from Chrome to your Windows Phone.
On a downside, it does cost $0.99 but comes with a free trial and thankfully, uses the same (and secure) sync mechanism that is also utilized by the Google Chrome itself.
Yes, we will finally post this.
