GoodBye Xmarks (Sad to see you go)

Writing by on Monday, 27 of September , 2010 at 9:57 pm

XMarks announced today on their blog that they will be shutting down. Such a great product and no one’s funding them or buying them out?

XMarks allowed sync-ing Bookmarks, passwords and history across multiple computers and cross browsers. Firefox and Chrome have their own plugins but are not inter-opearble. XMarks was a MUST HAVE plugin and I used it all the time.

It has been one of the top Firefox plugins for such a long time. It’s free – which is why they had such a huge user base, but the business model of ads didn’t work out. All good things come to an end and this one must too!

Wish them the best and I do hope they don’t shut down!

I’m sad to see it go too. I use both Chrome and Firefox on both my desktop and my laptop… I’ll be able to use each of the browser’s synch tools across machines… but not across web clients. :-(
