Best Bookmarks Manager Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
I've used Xmarks for more than 15 years. Xmarks is the best bookmarks manager I have found. I store a lot of bookmarks in folders in Firefox as my primary browser and I want them to show up in Safari when I use it. I also want my bookmarks to show up on my iPhone and iPad.
However, Xmarks can present challenges. First, syncing between Safari and Firefox requires monitoring the two sets of bookmarks and being careful they match up. Often, the "Favorites" in Safari will get out of sync with Firefox and it will take some effort to re-match them.
Second, getting my bookmarks to show up accurately on my iPhone and iPad is problematic. Since the bookmarks on my phone and iPad are driven by what Safari stores in iCloud, it is critical to make sure my Safari Favorites match my Firefox bookmarks. Sometimes, I have to wipe the Favorites saved on my phone and iPad first to get them to update.
Net, it takes some concentrated effort periodically to get my bookmarks to fully and accurately sync between Firefox and Safari AND across my laptop, iPhone and iPad... but it can be done with Xmarks. Without Xmarks, it simply would not happen.

Generally the best Bookmarks Utility Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
I've used this add-on for years. It's truly great. The ability to go back in history and find a missing folder of bookmarks has saved my butt numerous times.
Having interacted quite a bit with the development team (to get help on issues), my sense is that this seemingly simple task is rather complicated. For example, the sister version "Xmarks for Safari" had several persistent flaws that only recently have been resolved. Net, it really does help to stay current with the latest version.
Xmarks is Freezing Firefox Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles
I've been a big fan of Xmarks for a long time. I've relied on it for syncing my bookmarks between 3 browsers. When Firefox 11.0 was released, Xmarks started causing Firefox to freeze EVERY time I did a manual update. I have uninstalled all other extensions to isolate this issue. Each time I re-install Xmarks and attempt to do a manual sync, Firefox freezes part way through the sync process. I cannot use Firefox now when Xmarks is installed.
This needs to be fixed. Submitting this issue on the Get Satisfaction Forum used by Xmarks is totally useless. Hopefully, the developer will read this and respond.
