Redirect bug hints at iCloud Bookmarks coming to iCloud.com

updated 03:08 pm EST, Wed January 29, 2014

Web portal could soon become more robust

An unusual URL redirect bug suggests that iCloud.com may soon get access to iCloud Bookmarks. The feature lets people sync Safari bookmarks across platforms, including not just different versions of Safari but also Chrome and Firefox. Currently, people trying to install the Chrome extension from the iCloud Control Panel for Windows will briefly see "iCloud Bookmarks are coming soon. Please check back later" at this URL before being shunted to the Chrome Web Store.

Adding bookmarks to iCloud.com might effectively eliminate the need for the Chrome and Firefox add-ons in some cases, since it would allow bookmark access from any browser that can reach the website. When the Windows bug first appeared is uncertain, but it appears to be recent, since the splash page uses an iOS 7 aesthetic that was only added to iCloud.com a few months ago.
