I know Chrome syncs your bookmarks across computers by having you connect a Google account with the browser, but does it save them? If each of my two computers were obliterated by meteors, and I bought a new one and logged in, would I still have all my bookmarks?

I know it sounds like a given assuming they're synced, but I just want to hear it from someone who knows for certain that they can't be lost.

I guess that's a security measure, you have to sign in again to confirm that it's you. (in case you're using the "remember me" feature and someone else has access to your computer) – gronostaj Aug 26 '13 at 7:29
(I made a mistake, was using multiple accounts, wasn't signed in to Gmail under the same account as I was signed in to chrome with.) – Aerovistae Aug 26 '13 at 7:30
