LogMeIn to shut down Xmarks on May 1, 2018
« on: March 31, 2018, 10:45 PM »
Sorry to hear this. I don't really trust the Firefox builtin sync, from the documentation it seems to be 2-way but that is not my recollection when I tried it. I have been using xmarks since app103 recommended it. IIRC it was after delicio.us went away.

We reviewed the service back in 2009 for the first time and the rocky pass in the years that followed. The creators wanted to shut down the service back in 2010 but LastPass, makers of the password manager, stepped in and acquired Xmarks in the same year.

Didn't think to post this as a separate topic- but posted an update in the ymarks thread which was recommended in that ghacks article.  Apparently tuxman had already received a twitter support request!

Nice! I totally missed that when I read the NANY 2018 roundup (and that is before I knew xmarks was going away). I'll check it out. :Thmbsup:
