Xmarks Bookmark Sync is Going Bye-Bye

submitted on September 28, 2010 by pablos17 in "Member's Lounge"
I am really sad to see this reliable add-in go to the way side. Sad Just wanted to warn those out there so that bookmarks can be sync'd up elsewhere. See the link at the bottom of the page for Xmark alternatives.

As I write this, it’s a typical Sunday here at Xmarks. The synchronization service continues operating quietly, the servers chugging along syncing browser data for our 2 million users across their 5 million desktops. The day isn’t over yet, but we’re on track to add just under 3000 new accounts today.

Tomorrow, however, will hardly be anything but typical, for tomorrow one of our engineers will start a script that will email each of our users to notify them that we’ll be ceasing operations in around 90 days.

This post attempts to summarize the Xmarks story: how we got to be the most heavily used browser synchronization service in the world and yet still find ourselves pulling the plug.

    I am using Delicious (now part of Yahoo) for my bookmarking needs. There is a Firefox plugin that syncs all the online bookmarks into your browser. Their tagging rocks!
