    "PERFECT! Exactly what I needed!"

    April 3, 2011  |   By Tracie365

    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.
