As you know, Xmarks has shut down. But don’t worry, we compiled a list of the 15 best alternatives to Xmarks that you can use to replace your favorite bookmark sync tool.
First selection of Xmarks alternatives
To help you decide, we wrote reviews on the six best Xmarks replacements. We listed all of them, linking to their in-depth reviews.
Our favorite bookmarking tool is start.me. It is a more powerful bookmark manager than the rest of the pack, as you can show your links as lists, icons, or even in a cloud view. They offer many advanced widgets, unlimited pages and great sharing options. The free version is great, but with a PRO subscription, you can become even more productive. Read our extended review to learn why we’re so supportive of start.me.
Raindrop is a bookmarking service for all platforms and browsers. With it, you can save your bookmarks into folders (aka Groups). As a result, you can access your information from any location.
Atavi is a free bookmark manager. It allows you to bookmark the websites you need, group them the way you want and synchronize the bookmarks with any device: PC, laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc.
Pinboard is a social bookmarking website developed and run by Maciej Cegłowski. It is a fast, no-nonsense bookmarking site for people who value privacy and speed.
- Bookmark Ninja
Bookmark Ninja is a clean, powerful bookmark manager. Bookmarks are stored on a visual dashboard and can be organized by Tabs and Categories.
Toby is the new kid on the block. It’s a browser extension that helps you organize your tabs on every new page. Toby is available on Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.
And 9 more Xmarks replacements for you to try
There are various less wonderful alternatives for Xmarks around. We have looked at many of them. After that, we’ve decided several were worth mentioning, even though they weren’t as good as the 6 I listed above. At some point, we will provide in-depth reviews. For now, just short mentions.
Sync your bookmarks across all platforms
Password manager with integrated bookmark manager support
A dashboard for your links
A versatile and powerful bookmark manager app.
Another web-based bookmark manager
Save interesting pages so you can read them later
Collect anything from the Internet and easily rediscover it later
Organize, curate and share bookmarks
In short, it’s clear that syncing bookmarks for free between Chrome and Firefox is dead in the water. Once upon a time, Xmarks got downloaded no less than 150.000 times a week! But nobody wanted to pay a dime to keep them afloat. It’s a shame, really.
Still, if there’s anything we hope to accomplish here, it’s to prove to you, that are a lot of options out there. Many of them free, or free to try. Some of them wonderful and useful for everyday use. For example, start.me or Raindrop.io.
Why don’t you try your luck? And please let us know what you think: if there’s anything we really like, it’s a discussion about things that matter in life. Even if it’s just a small thing, like a bookmark manager or bookmark sync service.
