    initial v1  
    33  As of October 2015, StatCounter estimates that Google Chrome has a 56% worldwide usage share of web browsers as a desktop browser. It is also the most popular browser for smartphones, and combined across all platforms at about 45%.

    5 You'll be hard-pressed finding users **not** using the built-in synchronization. Everyone I know that uses Chrome does so (knowingly or unknowingly). It is also not very uncommon for people to have a desktop, laptop and mobile device (though mobile is a different story). For myself, I use 2 desktops (work, personal), 3(!) laptops (windows, 2x OSX) on a ''very'' regular basis. And it's becoming very cumbersome to keep all these "in-sync" regarding white-listed domains and custom filters. 
     5You'll be hard-pressed finding users **not** using the built-in synchronization so I strongly disagree with the "''can still be considered a corner case''" remark.

    77Also I would like to request that, **unless** there's a **very** good reason **not** to do so, use the synchronization mechanism Chrome provides instead of building/implementing your own. If not for the NIH syndrome (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Not_invented_here) then for the fact that it would require another login or at the very least another "3rd party cloud storage" next to the existing one which would raise (unessesary!) suspicion at the very least.
