Get Foxmarks Beta for Internet Explorer

The Foxmarks add-on for Internet Explorer is no longer in Alpha. Today, we are delighted to announce the availability of a much improved Beta version of Foxmarks for IE. We promoted this add-on from Alpha to Beta because of the significant improvements in stability and performance in this release.

Thousands of you have been running the Alpha release for the past several months, and we couldn't have gotten this far without your extraordinary help. Thank you. We encourage you to upgrade to the Beta as soon as possible to take advantage of all the improvements from your feedback. Let us know how it goes!

What's new in this latest version:

  • Compatible with IE 8
    We've made sure that Foxmarks for IE works on the latest and greatest IE 8 Beta 2. It also works on IE 6 and 7 so that you have maximum flexibility.

  • Works with Vista UAC
    Foxmarks can now correctly manage the order of your bookmarks even if you have User Account Control (UAC) enabled in Vista.

  • Syncs without having to run IE
    We redesigned Foxmarks to run as an entirely separate application from IE. This is great if you want your favorites synced for a purpose other than accessing them in IE (e.g. load them onto a phone).

  • Displays status in the systray
    We've added an icon to your systray to display sync status and to give you quick access to Foxmarks features. If your systray is already quite full, you can simply turn this feature off.

  • Improved stability and speed
    Thanks to your diligent reporting we've discovered and fixed dozens of bugs and memory leaks. We've also made this version of Foxmarks run significantly faster than the Alpha version.
