Xmarks Blog » End of the Road for Xmarks


This sucks. I’ve been a huge fan of Xmarks (and Foxmarks, as they used to be called) since they came out. I’m using them currently to sync bookmarks between Firefox and Chrome, and now I’ll be stuck with the built-in sync. =P

As I write this, it’s a typical Sunday here at Xmarks. The synchronization service continues operating quietly, the servers chugging along syncing browser data for our 2 million users across their 5 million desktops. The day isn’t over yet, but we’re on track to add just under 3000 new accounts today.

Tomorrow, however, will hardly be anything but typical, for tomorrow one of our engineers will start a script that will email each of our users to notify them that we’ll be ceasing operations in around 90 days.
