I have looked at syncing extensions in Chrome on the web and get the message that syncing is only necessary when two or more computers are involved.

 

It does not spell it out bluntly.

 

Can one of  our experts simply answer this question ?

 

I  have only one computer and am the only person using it. Do I need to sync anything at all ?

Love the avatar username connection LOL!

I am not expert but this option indeed does not need to be used unless more than one computer or Operating system is being used.  It is simply a way of getting all your information "Synched" to your other computers or Operating systems if you have more than one OS on one computer.

 

Example, I am dual booting Linux with Windows XP.  On linux I am using, for example...Google Chrome.  Now, to get all my settings and favorites over to my Windows XP Google Chrome I need to "Sync" and that is all there is to it.  If you don't understand fire away. 

 

Sometimes a person wants to have their settings different on different OS's so one would not want to "Sync" as I have learned LOL.  see ya
