Sadly, Xmarks will be shutting down our free browser synchronization service on January 10, 2011. This page contains details on how to transition to recommended alternative services. For more detail on why we're closing our doors, please see our blog post.
What you need to know:
- Browser Sync Alternatives
While you may have to give up cross-browser sync when Xmarks goes away, there are a lot of good browser-specific sync options available:
Xmarks Data Types Supported
Bookmarks, passwords, history, tabs
Windows Live Essentials
You can also create an html backup of your bookmarks at any time by using the Export feature at my.xmarks.com.
- Service End Date and User Support
Xmarks Sync for Firefox, Chrome, IE, Safari, and iPhone will continue to operate until January 10, 2011. Email support is no longer available, but our user support forums on GetSatisfaction will continue to be a place for users to help each other.

- More Sync Options
If you have need of syncing more than just bookmarks between computers, here are two great services we recommend you try out. Both offer a free plan with no payment obligation.
Evernote lets you save entire webpages, including text, links and images. It keeps everything synchronized across your computer, phone and the web. In addition to storing webpages, Evernote also allows you to take notes, store to-dos, snap photos and more.
SugarSync is easy, secure online file sync and backup. Keep your files, photos, and music stored in the cloud so you can access them anytime. Works with PC and Mac plus mobile devices like iPhone, iPad, Android, and more. Try it Free!
