What's the newest/bestest way to sync browser data across browsers & PCs

What is the best (non-keyboard based) way to evolve my amalgamation of browser installs, saved passwords, bookmarks, and maybe settings/extensions into a cohesive, probably exclusively Chrome-based, install?

So right now I'm at the end of the Firefox phase of my life and I'm also nearly ready to configure the browser install on my new HTPC build as well as reinstall a few other OS's around the house.
The bad part is that means I'm going to need to A) clean, B) cull dead links, C) organize, D) plan the future of, and E) transfer the things I mentioned above. I understand that A, C, and D are likely manual tasks by definition. But the culling and transferring is something I'd rather automate if possible.
I've recently gained a bit of a better understanding of the Chrome side of things (sync) and know that I can disable it and or remove certain machines from being synced... That's helpful but planning out how to best get the things that should be transferred (not forgetting the Firefox side of things) and then setting the isolation as needed (like my office/work computer not needing to have my home bookmarks for example) still needs some work.
What tools/resources/hints/tips do you have that might be useful?
