Apple makes Chrome, Firefox plug-ins for iCloud on Windows available
Wednesday, September 18, 2013 @ 5:55pm

Amidst the high-profile iOS 7 launch, Apple has also made available a pair of plug-ins for Windows users to enable bookmark syncing. Available today in conjunction with the iCloud Control Panel for Windows 3.0 upgrade are plug-ins for alternative browsers Chrome and Firefox on Windows. Notably, Apple has not added the functionality to Chrome on OS X.



According to Apple, the new version of the control panel and the plug-in suite "keeps your Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Google Chrome bookmarks on Windows in sync with your Safari bookmarks on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac." The new plug-ins are the first effort from Cupertino integrating other browsers into iCloud. No mention of Safari for Windows is made, suggesting that Apple may be planning to withdraw from the Windows browser market. Microsoft Outlook 2007, 2010, or an "up-to-date" browser is required for accessing email, contacts, and calendars on Windows. The control panel for Windows can be downloaded from Apple.com.
