Xmarks is going away

Previously, I wrote about a service called Xmarks that I use to synchronize my bookmarks across browsers and computers.  It has come to my attention that Xmarks is shutting down effective January 10, 2011.  You can read more about it here.

If you are using Xmarks, like me, you'll want to switch to an alternative before the shutdown date.  My primary browser now is Chrome, which has a built-in bookmark sync tied to your Google account.  I'll be transitioning from Xmarks to Chrome Sync in the next few months.  I haven't yet decided whether I will sync my Firefox and Internet Explorer bookmarks, as I don't use those browsers as much.

It's too bad that Xmarks wasn't able to turn a profit and has to close their doors, but life goes on.
