Foxmarks bookmark sync service becomes Xmarks

Foxmarks was a service that let you sync your Firefox bookmarks across multiple computers. But then last month Foxmarks did something silly: The company added support for Internet Explorer and Safari bookmark synchronization, which made the Foxmarks brand obsolete.

Today, the team has remedied the situation by rebranding itself as Xmarks.

Xmarks is also launching a new web portal which makes use of some of the data the company has been collecting over the last few years. For example, you can type any URL into a search bar at to find information about a web site as well as similar web sites.

There’s also a new “smarter search” feature” that adds information to Google search results. An icon pops up next to results that are heavily bookmarked by other users. And if you scroll your mouse over that icon you can find more information about the site. Or if you’d prefer to just use Xmarks to synchronize your bookmarks, you can turn off the smarter search feature.
