If you use more than one web browser or computer, you know what a hassle it is to keep your bookmarks up to date. Well, no more hassle for you, my friend. Xmarks is a free add-on for Safari, Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. Once installed and set-up, Xmarks will automatically keep your browsers up to date with each other by syncing to a server. You’ll never have to manually update your bookmarks again.
If you’re an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch user, you can get the same great syncing with the Xmarks iOS App for only $0.99. That’s a great way to support the Xmarks team.
Sadly, there are some downsides. Safari users don’t get all of the benefits of Xmarks. In fact, Safari users on Windows can’t use Xmarks at all. Safari for OS X only supports bookmark syncing; other browsers can sync open tabs, history, and passwords. If you want to voice your dissatisfaction with the Safari version’s limitations, you can contact the Xmarks team here. Hopefully, Safari will soon be at parity with the rest.
So, do you have a better way of syncing your bookmarks? Let me know by leaving a comment on this post. We here at Macgasm depend on your input do decide what to cover. Be heard!
