"By Spring 2010, with money running tight and options fading, we started searching for potential buyers of the company."
"With that investment thesis thwarted, there is no way to pay expenses, primarily salary and hosting costs. Without the resources to keep the service going, we must shut it down. Our plan is to keep the service running for another 90+ days, after which the plug will be pulled."
Nooooo, what the fuck?
You can 'sync' your Google Chrome which basically does your bookmarks, preferences, themes, etc.
Any recommended cross browser alternatives spring to mind?
Most browsers lack good delicious integration
yeah - xmarks is/was good 'cause it just uploaded your carefully organised bookmarks as they are in the browser.
delicious tags are great, but it's a different way of thinking/navigating :/
never heard of it
why don't they set up a subscription service?
Xmarks: Alive and Kicking
You’re still alive, she said
Oh, and do I deserve to be
Is that the question
And if so...if so...who answers...who answers...

I’m pleased to announce that we’re in the final stages of completing a sale of Xmarks to a new owner who is 100% committed to keep our great browser sync service running smoothly.
The Xmarks service will evolve to have both a free component and a premium component – we’ll share all the details once the deal is done. For all of you that signed our pledge, or are asking us to reopen the pledge, please hold that thought. When we update the service we’ll have a premium option for you to spend some of your hard earned money on, and we will be very thankful when you do!
I can’t provide more details just yet, but I wanted to publish this update to let you all know that we’re alive and kicking and things are on track for a “new and improved” Xmarks.
