Xmarks Sync to be Discontinued

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

I've been using Xmarks Sync (formerly Foxmarks) for several months and I admit that I was disappointed to hear that they will be shutting down their services on Jan 10, 2011.

Fortunately, there are some good alternatives out there:

I think it may be time to switch mainly to Chrome. If you're using an Android smartphone, you can use "Chrome to Phone" to share information between your desktop browser and your mobile browser.
