Welcome Google Chrome to the Browser World!

Google launched a brand new open source web browser this week! The new Google Chrome browser is blazingly fast and promises a safer and more stable experience online. Our first impression is that Chrome is lite on bookmarking features (there's no UI for organizing your bookmarks), but we're confident that the folks at Google will get around to filling in that blank soon. We tested our online bookmark manager using Chrome and we're pleased to see that it's both compatible and super speedy.

Of particular interest to us: Google Chrome doesn't have a way to sync bookmarks across computers. Since we know a thing or two about this, we're happy to report that we're investigating a Foxmarks add-on for Google Chrome.

But that's not all. Over the past few months, many of you have written in to us asking for Safari support. We're delighted to share that we are exploring how to sync your bookmarks with Safari as well. It's too early to say when Foxmarks for Safari will be available, but we'll be sure to keep you posted as we learn more.

Foxmarks has been syncing Firefox bookmarks across computers for almost two years, and now we're expanding to sync bookmarks across browsers as well. We've just begun supporting Internet Explorer (try out the alpha version) and we hope to add Chrome and Safari to the list.

Yesterday was a big day in the world of browsers; as consumers get more and more choices for how they use the Web, our goal is to make sure you have the freedom to have your data available and in sync on as many different browsers and platforms as possible.
