Just started looking at this here, too.
Immediate problem I've found is that it stores a lot of config settings in the local user profile, not the roaming one. Can that be changed? Alternatively, will that stop being a problem once I start using the ADMX files? At present, it is just a local install (from MSI) on my own computer...
Sup, what is the difference from adm to admx type of Chrome policy templates ?
ADM = Windows Server 2003
ADMX = Windows Server 2008 / 2008 R2 / 2012
Our Head of ICT just told me they need Google Chrome for next year, so this thread will be very useful! Thanks to all those who have helped so far!
I've pretty much got this working the way I want to with just a few snags that I'd like to iron out:
1. Can I disable Extensions altogether? I've not been able to see a way of disabling this at all and under my test student account, it pretty much lets me install anything.
2. A lot of the advanced settings are still unlocked. E.g:
Manage Search Engines
Privacy (Content Settings)
Web Content (Font Size etc)
Does anyone know how to lock down these settings?
3. If I wanted to deploy my own choice extensions (for argument sake, lets say, Stylish, or Angry Birds etc) how can this be done and how can I download the extension files to deploy out to the PCs?

Thanks, that worked perfectly. Now, does anyone know how to download the .crx files for any extensions that the ICT dept. may want downloaded? And also point 2, blocking most of the advanced settings.
Any update for the bookmarks? Need to get this working
What's the bookmark issue?
Strongly considering a move to Chrome here, since a) it is faster, and b) we use Google Apps which increasingly often seems to be a little temperamental in IE.
Basically Chrome doesn't allow the use of Roaming Profile data for things like Bookmarks they want you to use the Sync system. So everyone has to log into a google account to make it work, which is crap for a none personal computer situation.
Someone already posted about this last year and as of today it's still the same, so I don't think it's something google are going to "fix"
Google Chrome Bookmarks
It's a shame because I was already to deploy it, had all my permissions set and everything but I could never fix the bookmark problem so I looked it up and this is what I found. Disappointed to say the least.
Couldn't you write a logoff script that copies the bookmarks from the local user profile to a location on the network then copies them back at next logon? OK it's not an ideal solution but it would work and allows you to get rid of IE as the default browser
