Bookmarks are always an issue when you have more than one device for web browsing. With Xmarks‘ recent near-miss with death, and the “Sunsetting” of Delicious, the less nerdy among us are starting to realize that not everything is fine and dandy in Bookmarkville.
On one hand, we’re seeing the browser developers working harder on Bookmark sync, but Xmarks is pretty much the only game in town for multi-browser bookmark syncing. As we all know, two-way sync can be a pain in the butt, so we need more competition in the market. If more people are working on figuring out the perfect sync solution, we won’t be SOL if Xmarks implodes again.
There will always be the people who want to rsync to a web server in Sweden through a VPN tunnel. Too bad most human beings have no idea what any of that means. We need a decent selection of options for our bookmarking needs, and we should be willing to support developers who innovate.
So, what do you do for bookmarking? How do you keep everything synced up? Let me know about your thoughts on the subject by leaving a comment below this post.
