My favorite bookmarking tool to replace Xmarks, is start.me. It’s a powerful and visual bookmark manager that opens on your homepage or on every new tab page. Once you’ve imported your old bookmarks, you’ll always have quick access to your favorite sites. 

Major advantages of start.me

First of all, it works on all browsers and platforms, without the need to sync your bookmarks. You can access all your bookmarks on a web-page (like my.xmarks.com). Pages are private by default, but you can also easily share them with others.

start.me comes with an elegant design which is totally customizable. As a result, you can determine the number of columns you see, the bookmarks widgets you use to organize everything. So, you need more levels? Even in the free version you can add as many pages as you’d like. Set colors, backgrounds, icons, choose a Dark Theme, if you want to. Also, the interface is really easy-to-use.

Moreover, it has offers great support for bookmarks, with features like bookmark search, import/export, Broken Link Checker.

Finally, besides bookmarking, it provides a lot of extras, like support for RSS Feeds, Notes and Images. The embed widget allows you to embed any external webpage into your dashboard.
