Xmarks for Chrome!

We've been swamped with requests to create a version of Xmarks for the Google Chrome browser. We're hard at work on that and, thanks to some new APIs from Google, are pleased to report that we have Xmarks synchronization working in the Windows developer channel for Chrome. The Chrome extension platform is still far from complete and our initial alpha release has many rough edges, but for you brave (and very vocal) early adopters, we wanted to get this into your hands sooner rather than later.

We’re happy to invite you to test our early alpha release of Xmarks for Chrome. The extension will synchronize your Chrome bookmarks across computers running Firefox, IE, Safari and/or Chrome. Just like our other versions, Xmarks for Chrome works quietly in the background to keep all your bookmarks the same on all of your browsers.

If you’re interested in participating in the alpha test please sign up.  This is a closed alpha, which means that you won't be able to install the extension immediately. After signing up we'll email you when you've been accepted into the program - we do this for scaling and stability reasons.

Please remember that this is an alpha release only:  it does not include support for your own server, sync profiles, or our discovery features. A full list of recent changes and known issues can be found on the Xmarks for Chrome news page.

After giving it a try, please visit our GetSatisfaction forum for feedback and feature requests. We'd love to know what you think!
