Keeping things like important files and bookmarks synced between multiple computers took just a little planning. For instance, the ever-wonderful Dropbox keeps all my important – and not so important but still useful – files available anywhere I am while backing it all up to the cloud for me. Saved my ass more than once!
Bookmark sync is another of those areas I absolutely need a synced backup between my various systems, and have been a long time user of Xmarks, even back when it used to be known as Foxmarks. The recent announcement of their upcoming shuttering left me scrambling for a replacement. Everything I’ve tried has left me frustrated at best or pissed off at worst. (Yes, I’m looking at you Firefox Sync –your inability to do much of anything wasted far too much of my time over the couple days I attempted to get it working!)
But news of Xmarks potential resurrection brought a smile to my face today. I’ve pledged my support for them today. If you ever find someone who provides a great service that just flat out works for you, don’t hesitate to pony up a few bucks to support ‘em!
