SearchTabs for Chrome

SearchTabs from Xmarks

Just over a month ago we launched a new Firefox Add-on called SearchTabs. It’s an extension designed for information junkies who want to get the most out of each and every web search, and discover the best sites right on their Google page. We're happy to announce that SearchTabs is now available for Google's Chrome browser as well!

SearchTabs is still a work in progress, but we hope you’ll give it a try and send us your feedback. Visit our download page and install it.

Follow Your Passion, I mean Topic!

New Topic Alerts on
We see around one million new bookmarks added to our system every day. By analyzing that fire hose of data we do a pretty good job of figuring out the hottest new sites across a huge range of topics. With our new Topic Alert emails, you can be the first to know about great sites across your favorite topics.

We've added a link on all topic pages labeled 'Follow This Topic'. Simply click on that link, follow the instructions and you'll start getting email alerts about your topic. Each week we check if there are new and notable sites about that topic; if so we bundle them up in an email and send it straight to you. To view or change your topic alert subscriptions, simply log in at and visit your profile page (by clicking on your user name in the top right).

top_100We may be preaching to the choir on our blog, but we thought you'd like to know that PCWorld chose Xmarks as one of their top 100 best products for 2009.

We ranked #31 overall in the list, and within our software category we made the podium as the #2 best software product for 2009!

Thanks PCWorld, and congrats to our browser buddies Firefox (#42) and Chrome (#58), plus fellow browser add-on LastPass who made the list at #46.
