Foxmarks is a handy little add-on for your Firefox browser that allows you to seamlessly sync your bookmarked web pages and passwords across multiple browsers. As of this month Foxmarks is a thing of the past as the company has rebranded the software as Xmarks. On top of that, the new Xmarks Firefox add-on has been fitted with a bunch of new features, in case you did not find it useful enough.

CEO with Xmarks Inc, James Joaquin comments: “I have some exciting news to share with you. Today we’re launching our new name and service: Xmarks. Our new Xmarks add-on is Firefox only. Internet Explorer and Safari versions are coming soon. We’d love to hear what you think of our new Xmarks site and add-on, please drop us a line.”


Xmarks Inc has provided a handful of details on the new add-on and promises to come with additional details in the near future. Here is what an existing Foxmarks user should be made aware of:
- If you get Xmarks, this will not disable Foxmarks. Xmarks is designed to work on top of the already in place Firefox add-on. Besides the ability to sync Foxmarks accounts, you will also benefit from Xmarks’ new features: Smarter Search and Site info.
- Smarter Search means that the top 3 sites to pop up in a Google search will be highlighted according to the number of Xmarks users to have bookmarked those sites. You will get more details if you hove your mouse over the Info icon.
- Site Info means that if you click the Info icon you will have access to additional details on the site you are currently visiting. You will also get a list of suggestions, other sites similar to that one.

“Foxmarks.com and our existing Foxmarks add-ons won’t change overnight. We expect to have upgrades to all three Foxmarks versions [Firefox, IE, Safari]] available by the end of March. We’re still hard at work finding better, faster ways to sync more things in your browser,” explains James Joaquin.

If you would like to get Xmarks, a download location is available here.
