Foxmarks is becoming Xmarks

I have some exciting news to share with you. Today, March 2nd 2009, we’re launching our new name and service: Xmarks. I’m actually at the DEMO conference in Palm Springs writing this post.

If you’re an existing Foxmarks user, you probably have a few questions about this launch and name change. Here are the rough highlights; we’ll be communicating with you in the coming weeks in much more detail about our plans to make this a seamless transition for all our Foxmarks members.

Our new Xmarks add-on is Firefox only. Internet Explorer and Safari versions are coming soon.

  • Xmarks is a superset of Foxmarks – it adds web discovery features to our world-class bookmark sync. Learn more here.

  • If you choose to upgrade to Xmarks, it will work seamlessly with your existing Foxmarks account and will sync with your other computers running Foxmarks. Install Xmarks here.

  • and our existing Foxmarks add-ons won’t change overnight. We expect to have upgrades to all three Foxmarks versions available by the end of March and we’ll provide you with more detailed info once we return from the DEMO conference.

  • We’re still hard at work finding better, faster ways to sync more things in your browser.

We’d love to hear what you think of our new Xmarks site and add-on, please drop us a line.
