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:

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 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.

LogMeIn to shut down Xmarks on May 1, 2018

Waking up this thread to say -- Long time no see, mouser! I had no idea this app existed, I was just curious if there was any living room talk about intermittent fasting! It turns out I have been intermittent fasting since January 14 and have lost about 22 lbs. (Perhaps I did see it earlier but before I was intermittent fasting so it would not have meant as much to me.) I started off at 16:8 but nowadays I try to have a feasting window of 1 to 4 hours (20:4 to 23:1), and I choose the start and end time daily based on my mood that day. Sometimes I need to edit the Start and Stop time because I change my mind. I have no particular dietary restrictions, although I am free to tweak it if I hit a plateau. In the context of your app, my fasting style does not seem to have a Normal mode, or else Normal and Feast mode are the same thing. I installed your app, but I could not figure out if my fasting style is compatible.  Currently I track my fasts using the Vora app.  I am not following Leangains, I am following the book Delay Don't Deny by Gin Stephens, who leans heavily on on Dr. Jason Fung but without a low-carb emphasis. Most of us don't track calories or macros. She also co-hosts a podcast called the Intermittent Fasting podcast, along with Melanie Avalon, who also does IF but she does paleo as well. At the job I started last year, there are at least 3 of us doing some kind of health or weight related fasting, and we are doing three different flavors of it. I think a 4th is doing some doctor-prescribed fasting to fight inflammation.

In my particular tribe of IFing people, there is a demand for an Android app that allows you to track the feasting window, not just the fasting window (there is an iOS app that does so). Vora is considered the best for Android, but it doesn't have that particular feature.

More people should definitely know about intermittent fasting, it is pretty amazing. I think it is becoming more mainstream, though. I am starting to see more positive articles in mainstream news about it, although everyone seems to have a different version of it.

MBAM seems to detect these "PUPs" before them being installed, and then quarantines them.

You know, I need a good kick to go ahead and get the premium version of MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, and that may be it.

Side note: Is it just me or does the recent MalwareBytes UI makeover make it look like fake anti-malware? It's bad enough that I have to explain to people that it is very legitimate in spite of having the name MalwareBytes! I guess it's fake anti-malware's fault for being so slick-looking.
