Is anyone else finding that Xmarks is NOT working anymore? I have it installed for Firefox and Safari and it goes through the motions of syncing, but never completes the sync. I have uninstalled and re-installed it. Any suggestions?

I have used Lastpass since its infancy and with Xmarks joining, I couldn't resist. So I have had these two combined Softwares and since day one Xmarks has not been anything else than trouble. I have spent countless hours fixing problems according to tech.supports help. Little has it helped and today I have given up using Xmarks on all my Mac devices. The idea is so nice, but implementation stinks. The overwhelming problem is making doublets and mixing the entries so all logic disappears. My personal opinion is that you will love Lastpass but forget Xmarks exists and your life will be much less troubled. Maybe I owe to say that I use Safari, Chrome and Firefox.

Anyone know why syncing Xamrks is SO FAST in Chrome and SO SLOW in Safari and Firefox? Is this just an indication that Chrome is better designed?

Very helpful; free ; been using it for years along with the Firefox Add-on version; works well to sync bookmarks across Firefox and Safari on my Macbook, iPhone and iPad most of the time. Occasionally, the bookmarks get messed up. The great thing about Xmarks is you just go to your online account and RESTORE a fresh copy of your bookmarks. The archive holds copies dating back years. Since Safari has no capability to auto sort bookmarks, I rely on Firefox for managing my master bookmark list (I have about 1000 bookmarks). This way, my bookmarks and folders are always up-to-date and sync'd. I highly recommend it !

I used this for a long time. It was never able to dedupe (remove the duplicates from) my Safari bookmarks. Bought the lastpass bundle. I run the duplicate remover and it removes some duplicates, but if I then sync my bookmarks with Safari and then export my Safari bookmarks and run the output thru sort and uniq, the file shrinks by almost 50%. There are hundreds of duplicates it doesn't remove. But I don't want my bookmarks sorted...

I tried really hard, but Xmarks did a better job of completely screwing up my book marks than any software before or since. Duplicate entries; duplicate folders; empty folders. I tried the most basic "overwrite server; then overwrite local." Totally screwed up. If you want to move bookmarks between browsers, do it the old-fashioned say: export to html and import. (Or see if your destination browser offer a direct import.) Only use this if you enjoy reworking your -entire- bookmark setup every day. Horrible stuff. (but of course, YMMV. Mine never did after several years of trying every few months to see if it improved. It didn't.)

This is such a great asset to my workflow, using Safari and Google Chrome web browsers. I have encountered seamless syncing. It saves me time and energy. Thanks to the devs. If anyone is having problems and you use the same browsers I do, I suggest you go into Chrome's settings and click on Advanced sync settings, and deselect bookmarks, and click ok. Cheers

Not only doesn’t this work, for quite some time, but it will time and time again mess up/destroy your bookmarks. Backup and be ready to restore if you are fooled into thinking this garbage works. You may be in for a nasty surprise ;-(

This version 2.0.10 finally solves the "duplicate bookmarks" problem on Safari. Works fine on my Mac (10.6.8), with Safari, Chrome and Chromium, using the adequate extensions. No more duplicate bookmarks, no more sync errors… It's ok for me !

Version: 2.0.6
Everyone should know that MacUpdate's online Xmarks for Safari v2.0.6 is behind the times. Xmarks has just released v2.0.9 (http://download.xmarks.com/download/all). It has many bug fixes and works great now with my old core duo, 2006 first Intel edition, OS X 10.6.8 iMac as well as my OS X 10.9 MacBook Pro. I had the pleasure this week of testing pre-release versions for them. Check it out.

It LOOKS LIKE this version 2.0.0 is not fully compatible with Snow Leopard (10.6.8). Maybe because of Sync Services compatibility dropped out. Reverted to 1.4.3, which is working as a charm. Therefore, my rating applies only to version 1.4.3. as of now.

Xmarks version 1.4.3 is not compatible with OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Xmarks (at least through 1.4.3) requires SyncServices, which was deprecated with Mac OS 10.7 and removed entirely in 10.9.

Firstly, latest version is 1.4.3. Now I don't want to be overly critical of a great free product that provides much-needed utility (cross-browser syncing of bookmarks, which enables you to swap between browsers without problem), but there is a small issue which has been present for well over a year without being fixed; and the fix is so simple that there is little excuse for it not having been done. There is a reference in one of the plists inside the Xmarks application to a file called foxmarks.icn which should now refer to xmarks.icn. This causes repeated errors which can be seen in the Console. It can be fixed by editing the relevant file in the App bundle, but why has the trivial fix not been implemented by the developers?

I don't undurstand why this has to be an app, why this can't be an extension. While the extension for Chromium works perfect this one is buggy as hell. I get a lot popup windows while doing something else, and I can not close them. I have to kill the app to work further in other app. Basically: for Safari it is not working. :(

The Firefox and Chrome versions work great but the Safari version is too buggy and crashes quite a bit. Why can't this be an official extension instead of a separate app? Still needs work.

I hesitate to sign up for another syncing service. I just don't like all my stuff out there any more than I can help it. I've got DropBox, however I've been so far unsuccessful in configuring things so just bookmarks get synced, no matter how many tutorials I go through and follow. I'm really hoping DropBox will figure out how to support that function, as they have for 1Password for instance. Although it may be 1Password who's changed their application rather than Dropbox, I guess. Otherwise, if this is your first entry into the cloud syncing world, perhaps Xmarks is the way to go.

Unfortunately, this product has some significant bugs. Prior to this version, marks for Safari left me with a boatload of duplicate bookmarks. Its merge process is just not working correctly. This release leaves me with no way to sync, as it returns an error 0. I don't have time for this.

A great idea but all I get recently is error 01 can' complete sync. Worse that that is it is right in your face stopping you from doing other MORE important things. I have done all the deleting of file and even started a new account but it is not what it was. It is now a nuisance. Will have to forget it...

From a company perspective, it's worth every penny! :-) Seriously, it allow all of our browsers to stay synced and if you go on the pro version, then we can even sync our ipads and iphones. So if one sales person find a very important website, they just bookmark it and every sales person now has it. We would like to see it catch duplicates upon bookmarking versus having to perform this task through the website.

Very well made and simple app. I tried QuietRead but found it too was overly complicated for such a simple task. I'm actually glad this is not an extension. Every time Safari updates it breaks extensions. This is far simpler and straightforward. BTW Webkit, which Safari is based on is a known memory hog. Making this an extension is only going to make matters worse and end up like Firefox, which often is unusable due to so many extensions.

tried to use their Forum to troubleshoot a problem with their site. it wouldn't let me use my valid email address. Gmail worked but I tried to change it and it wouldn't take it. Others had similar problems that were unresolved on their forum after 2 years. Support for this product SUCKS. Not something I want to spend time on. At least with URL Manager Pro, Alco came back from the dead to support his product and customers. Guess that's what you get for free. PASS.

I love this program, and it was doing it's job excellently, but I had to uninstall it. According to my console log, there was a huge memory leak. It was just eating up a bunch of RAM, and the only way to stop it was to uninstall it, so I'm sad about it. I could not find a way to contact the company directly (I don't have Premium service) on this problem, so I posted to their forum - but no response as yet.

I've had this for some time, but only recently had a chance to really try it out on a modern system. Synching is incredibly easy, and the icon appears as a simple drop down menu item. Synching bookmarks takes ten seconds. Absolutely free, works in a snap...can't ask for anything better.
