Editors' Review

+

If you use more than one computer or more than one browser, you have probably experienced the frustration of not having access to a particular bookmark that you need. Fortunately, bookmarks are something that you can easily sync across machines or browsers thanks to Xmarks for Internet Explorer. This simple extension keeps your bookmarks consistent across locations, ensuring that you always have access to the sites you need.

Xmarks for Internet Explorer installs easily and then guides you through a setup wizard to create an Xmarks account if you don't already have one. Xmarks then backs up your bookmarks to the cloud, where they'll wait safely until you need them. To access them elsewhere, simply install the Xmarks add-on on another machine or browser, and sign in, and your bookmarks will be synced automatically. Because Xmarks works with Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, it's easy to standardize your bookmarks across browsers. If you don't necessarily want all of your bookmarks synced you can create profiles that contain specific bookmarks and exclude others. You can even view open tabs remotely, a very cool feature if you left an important page open but can't remember the URL. Overall, we were quite impressed with the range of features that Xmarks offers, and we think it's a fantastic choice for anyone who uses more than one computer or just needs to sync bookmarks between different browsers.

Xmarks for Internet Explorer installs and uninstalls without issues.

"Absolutely Horrible Program!!"

December 05, 2014  |  By ddd831

 |  Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.3.5

Pros

This program has no pros. It will create chaos out of your IE bookmarks.

Cons

Rearranges your IE bookmarks and folders into an utter mess!

Summary

Avoid using this program at all costs!! I made the mistake of downloading and installing this program on my desktop and laptop both running IE in Windows 8. It immediately took bookmarks and folders out of folders they were in and rearranged them randomly creating an utter mess that is going to take hours to fix. How can a company put garbage like this out there? Did they not test it at all? Apparently the CNET staff who reviewed this POS did not test it either. How could they have if it does this to your bookmarks? A virus could not have done more damage to my bookmarks than this awful program did. I'd give it minus 5 stars if I could!

"Eventually stared getting duplicates"

November 25, 2013  |  By Holmes1245

 |  Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.3.5

Pros

The Good: You are able to sync your bookmarks across Firefox, Chrome and IE.

Cons

The bad: You will start losing bookmarks or getting duplicates. My problem is that I could not easily sync bookmarks across all three browsers. When I started using Chrome and synced bookmarks to my Google account through Chrome, all my bookmarks were duplicated. I later found out there was a discrepancy between Chrome and Xmarks. However, I blame LastPass (the company behind Xmarks) because I was using their Chrome app which should have seen this coming. Hence, my bookmarks were all duplicated - a total mess. A app that specializes in syncing bookmarks should not have allowed this to happen. I organized my favorites and just recently installed Xmarks for IE only to have Xmarks assume that I wanted my old favorites in IE joined with my favorites on the Xmarks server.My IE favorites were messed up so I uninstalled Xmarks on Firefox and Chrome before it could do any more damage.

Summary

I really do think I'm better off sticking to Chrome. I'm going back to Chrome exclusively due to this mess. You can say it's the user's fault but syncing bookmarks needs to be easier than what Xmarks makes it in the first place since many people out there can't afford to lose their favorites. Go ahead and use. Good luck on being able to sync perfectly each and every time.

"Lost most favorite"

September 10, 2013  |  By Michael903

 |  Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.3.5

Pros

Ease of install

Cons

Installed on Chrome, IE and Firefox. I was expecting to sync up all my favorites. As time went by, over a week, I began to lose all my favorites across all the browsers.

Summary

Make sure you back up all your favorites to a file before attempting to use this program

"Deleted contents of my sub-folders"

October 16, 2011  |  By eheinzle

 |  Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.3.3

Pros

Mobile access to bookmarks

Cons

Deleted some of my important bookmarks

Summary

Since Skydrive no longer supported favorites editing anymore, I needed to find a mobile bookmark service so I could have my favorites no matter what computer I was on. The review for XMarks were good, so I downloaded it. Came to discover that when I would click on a favorites sub-folder that it would have NO CONTENT. It erased much needed favorites that I use on a regular basis. Now I've been having to go back to what was left on my Skydrive and manually enter all the favorites I lost. I would NOT recommend this product.

"Wish it integrated better."

August 29, 2011  |  By WillDraven

 |  Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.3.3

Pros

Syncs your bookmarks.

Cons

Icon resides in system tray instead of in the browser.

Summary

Would be great if the icon you use to interact with it was in the browser instead of the system tray as with other browsers.

"PERFECT! Exactly what I needed!"

April 03, 2011  |  By Tracie365

 |  Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.3.2

Pros

Can now access my (literally) thousands of favorites from any browser on any computer, or on any phone. And they're always up-to-the-minute current. PLUS! It keeps them in the order I store them in!! It doesn't rearrange to strictly alphabetical!

Cons

Sounds silly, but I wish the icons for the different sites saved would show, like in IE or FF. Those icons help me more quickly discern what I'm looking for.

Summary

I found an additional trick to make my life easier! Here's how it works: I installed an add-on in FireFox called "Plain Old Favorites" that keeps IE favorites immediately and continuously sync'd with the newly installed FF Favorites (not bookmarks) and vice versa, once installed. This being installed on FF, in addition to setting up Xmarks in IE, keeps all favorites up-to-the-minute updated and accessible from anywhere, any browser, and any phone.

This set up finally allowed me to stop using IE as my default browser, and go with the much nicer FF browser as my default.

Throw in installing the FF Smart Bookmarks Bar and FF Sync to sync all my FF browsers on all of my computers, laptops and phone, and I am an extremely happy camper with continuity everywhere I go! I know it sounds a little anal, but some of us LOVE logical, continuous, SELF-MAINTAINING organization.

Xmarks has also made my husband extremely happy because now he can get to all his links on his home desktop, either from his laptop or phone, when he's on the road.

"Imported faves from Firefox, but swapped some favicons"

February 12, 2011  |  By EMcCutchan

 |  Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.3.2

Pros

Worked well at importing my bookmarks from Firefox to Explorer favorites.

Cons

All favorite links worked, but most of the favicons in my Favorites Toolbar got shifted over by a couple of links.

Summary

Get it if you want to synch & swap your bookmarks/favorites between browsers, but watch out for shifting favicons.
