    "Makes Internet Explorer almost bearable!!!"

    October 20, 2010  |   By soberlady87

    Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.2

    Pros

    I am a true Foxfire fan and only use Internet Explorer when I have no other choice, but at least with XMarks I still have access to all my bookmarks and that makes Internet Explorer almost bearable.

    Cons

    It is a pain to have to use Internet Explorer sometimes when it is the only program allowed, but at least with XMarks I can still maintain my sanity when I have to use it.

    "A superb program for keeping all of your Favorites!"

    July 9, 2010  |   By otl400

    Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.2

    Pros

    I have never had a problem with this program. It flawlessly keeps my Favorites/Bookmarks online and up to date. It can keep track of your passwords, but I haven't used XMarks for this yet as I have another password keeper.

    Cons

    I haven't found any problems with this.

    Summary

    Easy to use, sinmple interface, no problems, a great app! Restores all of my Favorites/Bookmarks without difficulty after I've done a clean install. Wonderful backup app for your bookmarks.

    "Foxmarks was much better"

    April 29, 2010  |   By sparafucile1998

    Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.2

    Pros

    Xmarks is an excellent product for keeping bookmarks in synchronization between Mozilla Firefox instances on different machines. I have used Xmarks, and earlier Foxmarks, on Windows XP, Windows Seven and Linux (Ubuntu).

    Cons

    Synchronization of bookmarks with Internet Explorer does not work well. Every time I reboot a PC then I am prompted to login to Xmarks again, which seems to me unnecessary and irritating. Synchronization of IE bookmarks often fails.

    Summary

    If I had the choice then I should go back to Foxmarks. The browsers that I mainly use are Firefox and Opera. I have been trying to keep IE bookmarks synchronized with IE but I am constantly disappointed with the poor reliability of this functionality. Sometimes I get duplicate bookmarks in IE which I have to remove by downloading all bookmarks from the server. I should emphasise that the product works really well for Firefox and all of the problems that I have experienced have been with IE. There is password synchronization functionality in Xmarks but I have not tried to use it.

    "an excellent product that becomes more intelligent"

    April 16, 2010  |   By esmera1263

    Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.1.4

    Pros

    painless syncing. Storage of old bookmarks so no real harm can be done.

    Cons

    Sometimes the sync is out of whack and I'm not in the mood to deal with it. One of those computer pains -- But still, all in all, it's a big win, especially with the adored Roboform.

    "Multiple computers - just one roster of favorites"

    April 15, 2010  |   By garympeck

    Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.1.4

    Pros

    Works as advertised! Simplifies favorites over multiple computers.

    Cons

    Make sure you synchronize the "right" way or you may lose some data.

    Summary

    Love it!

    "Great add on for browsers. Synchronizes across browser."

    January 31, 2010  |   By Kasee

    Version: Xmarks for Internet Explorer 1.1.3

    Pros

    Synchronized bookmarks and passwords; Bookmarks synchronization is perfect.

    Cons

    Password synchronization not available for internet explorer.

    Summary

    Synchronized bookmarks and passwords; Bookmarks synchronization is perfect.
    Password Synchronization, though good (for other browsers) - Password automatic fill up in web pages (in other browsers) does not look good compared to lastpass addon.

    Password synchronization not available for internet explorer.

    I use only for book mark synchronization.
