iCloud for Windows adds bookmark support for Chrome and Firefox

Alongside the release of iOS 7, Apple has also pushed out an update to its iCloud for Windows control panel. The bump to version 3.0 brings the standard mail, contacts and calendars syncing still, but now adds bookmark sync support for Google Chrome and Firefox browsers.

With the new browser support, Windows users can add bookmarks now on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and have them automatically synchronized to Chrome or Firefox back on their desktop. Support was previously only for Microsoft's Internet Explorer, so fans of either alternative browser will be pleased by this update.

To make use of the feature in either browser, you'll need to download an extension for each of them. All the download links you'll need are below. Tell me; does this improve your iCloud experience on your Windows PC now?
