I admit it, i'm a bit paranoid..

I have come to like firefox sync together with my own sync server. Now for various reasons, I'm tempted to use Chromium (or Iron) instead. Now is there a way to have bookmarks, passwords etc. synchronised without pushing the data to google? WebDAV or something like it would be perfect.

Here's a corresponding chromium bug.

You can set up your own chromium sync server and launch the browser using

--sync-url="<your server here>"

what about chrome, not chromium? –  Alex Jul 13 at 7:26

You can try a DVCS such as git or bzr or mercurial. Everything you want to sync is a text file.

Maybe try Xmarks, which I believe allows you to use your own server if you wanted.

You could use a backup/syncing tool or service such as Dropbox to monitor your Chromium user profile folder on two or more different computers.

For more information about the location of the user profile folders or how to change its location, refer to http://www.chromium.org/user-experience/user-data-directory

Op states how he likes to use own sync server, and you suggested dropbox. I actually laughed. –  Hugo Dec 20 '11 at 21:46
    
Unless the server is a home one, it is never actually yours. And thanks, I take pride in making life funnier for others. –  molgar Dec 21 '11 at 9:20
    
An excelent point. That's why I have a static-IP at home, and a symmetric connection. That's also why my offsite backup-server is lying in a corner at my mom's place. –  Hugo Dec 23 '11 at 1:28
