Is this just on a Windows PC with iCloud Control Panel?   Not seeing any option to sync favorites when accessing iCloud using my MacBook Air.

You have the  iCloud control panel in your Mac also

Between our replies, I RDP'd over to a Windows 8.1 and added the iCloud plugin to Chrome browser.  Applied the sync, went back to iPad and sure enough all the Chrome bookmarks display.   Really slick!!

Now to just take a deep breath and explain these steps to our teachers who want this functionality.
