    From Computerworld:

    I'm currently testing Mozilla's own Firefox Sync service... It's not as robust as Xmarks, but at first glance it looks like it should meet my needs. Anyone have experience any other bookmark sync services?

    You mean other than Google's Chrome, which places the bookmarks in your Google Docs?

    Unfortunately, after syncing Chrome this way, I am unable to remove them from Google Docs.

    Yeah, I don't really want to entrust Google with any more of my data if I can avoid it. :p

    It looks like there's a couple of other bookmark synchronization add-ons for Firefox, but Firefox Sync works and seems have fairly small foot print so... meh... :confused :lol:

    FYI, Xmarks has been acquired by LastPast and will continue to be offered on a "freemium" basis. Details here:

    FWIW, I've switched back to Xmarks after testing Mozilla's Firefox sync for several weeks... There's no comparison, Firefox sync works, but Xmarks rocks.
