Nice design, but it repeatedly corrupts the local bookmarks database. Which either does or does not corrupt the databases on your other computers. Nice intentions, very flawed execution.

Goes from great to unstable Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas
I wish I could find something better. When Xmarks works, it's great: it gives good control over the backup and distribution of your bookmarks.
When it's bad, it corrupts your bookmark database. Then one is forced to overwrite the set in the cloud or overwrite the local version. Either one loses the last n days worth of saved bookmarks.
I ALWAYS do a Firefox local backup of the bookmarks before I invoke Xmarks. ALWAYS. You should too.
The company does offer a variety of Knowledgebase articles on how to fix problems, but the answers are either: destroy your local set or destroy the cloud set. In short, either way you will feel pain.
Quality has gone downhill Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas
I have been using Xmarks way before it became a subscription service, when it was also still the go-to for transferring passwords between my various Firefox installations. That length of time shows how convinced I am of its usefulness. However, in the last 5-6 months Xmarks has repeeated corrupted my bookmarks and/or simply hung up Firefox (whereby a forced kill also tends to corrupt the bookmark store). I have no insider information as to why this is the case, but I am slowly becoming convinced that Xmarks (owned by Lastpass) cannot maintain their software (whereby Lastpass has not failed me yet). I am afraid I need to start looking for another solution.
In the meantime, a warning to all users: make a Firefox manual backup to your local drive EVERY TIME you invoke Xmarks. Or you will be sorry 1 out of 8 times.
pretty good but why weaken it? Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas
I have used Xmarks (Foxmarks) for some 3 (?) years and mostly it has been very reliable. Maybe once it got tangled up, but I used the local Firefox bookmarks backup to restore (as my online Xmarks backup was potentially tainted). However, disabling the password synch feature (and forcing one to LastPass) needlessly weakens the product. For critical passwords I use LastPass (used to use Roboform, but it is way too Windows-centric). But for non-critical forum logins and such, Firefox's password manager is waaay speedier than LastPass. This situation is quite an aggravation, and I hope Xmarks considers reinstating the Password synch functionality.Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (4.0.1).
