    Is this normal behavior? normally I have sync turned off to prolong battery life but it also removes the capability to see the desktop bookmarks while in Android's Chrome browser. I thought the bookmarks were stored locally and then synced back when sync turned on.

    To see desktop bookmarks I have to flip the sync on do my thing and then flip it back off when I'm done browsing. Not a problem but not expected behavior.

    I would argue that that is the expected behavior. Sync should be on if you want to sync desktop and mobile bookmarks.

    Well the contacts don't disappear if sync is not on, made the assumption that bookmarks would be cached locally too.

    Your observation is correct. Turn off sync and the desktop bookmarks folder disappears.

    Desktop bookmarks are still there for me with sync off.

    Opposite for me. Sync on, no Desktop bookmarks, but when I save a bookmark, it does give me the ability to save to desktop on my device...

    Haven't checked to see if they are syncing to my PC though...

    Click on Advanced Syncing Settings and pick Bookmarks and even Themes and Extensions.
