Xmarks, previously Foxmarks, is a plug-in for Internet Explorer that syncs your bookmarks and other data anywhere you have it installed. It’s perfect for all those of us who work on two or more computers.
You have to be signed in to Xmarks to access your bookmarks, so it is secure. The user account can be easily created in a step-by-step configuration wizard when launching the program for the first time.
Besides bookmarks, Xmarks can also sync open tabs and browser history, and it lets you configure and use different syncing profiles. . Synchronizing takes a couple of seconds, and can be automated at browser shutdown if you wish.
On the downside, Xmarks doesn’t sync passwords anymore, which means you’ll need to use a separate app for that – Xmarks suggests LastPass– and generally speaking, this plug-in has less features than the Firefox version.
Xmarks is a great synchronizing tool with which you can keep your bookmarks, tabs and browser history updated across computers.
