Xmarks for Chrome

By Xmarks Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff May 5, 2011

It's not uncommon for people to have multiple computers these days: home computer and work computer, or desktop and laptop. Although the ubiquity of computers is convenient, spreading our computer use over several different machines can make it difficult to keep up with our data. Fortunately, bookmarks are something that you can easily sync across machines or browsers thanks to Xmarks for Chrome. This simple extension keeps your bookmarks consistent across locations, ensuring that you always have access to the sites you need to remember.

Like most Chrome extensions, Xmarks installs easily. The extension then guides you through a set-up wizard, where you will 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, sign in, and your bookmarks will be synced automatically. Because Xmarks works with Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer, it's easy to standardize your bookmarks across browsers. Users who don't necessarily want all of their bookmarks synced can create profiles that contain specific bookmarks and exclude others. Xmarks even lets users 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.

Xmarks for Chrome installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this extension to all users.
