LastPass Acquires Xmarks!




Today we're excited to announce that Xmarks has been acquired by LastPass, makers of a leading cross-platform password manager. It's a great opportunity that ensures the survival of Xmarks as the same service that you know and love.

In the last few years, we've attracted over 4.5 million users syncing more than 1 billion bookmarks across 5 million computers. Most importantly, we've provided a simple solution to help people easily access their bookmarks, wherever and whenever they needed to. We've had thousands of users tell us that Xmarks has become an integral part of their browsing experience. You can rest assured that LastPass will continue to build upon the service in the coming months.

We're also committed to keeping Xmarks free while implementing a viable long-term plan. Xmarks is transitioning to a "freemium" business model, the same model that allowed LastPass to grow into a thriving, profitable business. The browser add-on and the vast majority of what users have enjoyed remains free. Users can then opt to purchase Xmarks Premium for $12 per year, which includes new enhanced features like Android and iPhone mobile phone apps, priority support, and more. The Xmarks and LastPass Premium offerings are also available bundled together at a reduced subscription rate of $20 per year. For those of you who pledged your financial support, you can make good on your pledge today and upgrade.

The restructuring of the Xmarks offerings will accelerate the introduction of new features and service improvements. The two services will continue to require separate downloads and will be administered through two distinct extensions and websites, although there are plans to integrate them in the future.

We believe the acquisition will prove to be a success because of the common mission shared by LastPass and Xmarks. Xmarks complements LastPass' vision of secure, universal access to the information that gives you entry to your digital life. By joining LastPass, Xmarks will also be able to accelerate the introduction of new features and developments. As the ultimate cross-browser, cross-platform team, Xmarks and LastPass will work together to help more people simplify their digital lives and access their data from anywhere, at any time.

We're excited to join forces with LastPass and be a part of a team that will continue to provide the best data-syncing tools out there! We hope you will support both of these great services through your business and your Premium subscription. For more information, please see the FAQs.

The Xmarks & LastPass Teams

  1. This is seriously good news! Like when someone first combined Chocolate & Peanut Butter good news. LastPass is great, but definitely missing what XMarks offers, it's great to know XMarks will integrate with LastPass in the future.

    I tried using Firefox & Google Sync, both were terrible leaving me with 4x copies of all of my bookmarks, and it was a mess! So glad to hear XMarks will live on!

  2. This is awesome news :)

    as a premo lastpass subscriber i'll up it another $8 for the yr.

    suppose i should install xmarks again, didn't reinstall it after format since your "we are stopping" announcement cause it kinda stopped working properly, lost a lot of bookmarks and it sucked, so just went with chrome and google sync and "too bad, so sad"'d the firefox bookmarks

    oh well since you are gonna be around now I'll sort out my bookmarks once and for all, good times :)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Thank for both teams! It's a great decision.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Great news! You just made my day!

    ReplyDelete
  5. oh gosh! this one is indeed very good news for me!
    Me like to use your service very much, -I fell in love with it, seriously- .

    Once you've given me some optional for browser built-in bookmark / password sync, but it turned out not very good, and it was such a disaster. Some of my browser histories & bookmarks got obliterated, glad I make it somehow ... :(

    And for "LastPass" , I haven't tried the service before, perhaps I'll try it soon, since both LastPass & Xmarks are "friends" :D

    Anyway, thanks a bunch for giving me such big help with this tremendously good service of yours ...

    Sincerely, your daily user,
    Biyan

  7. Today the Internet achieved something.

    We took you for granted Xmarks, we used you as much as we wanted. We took, and took and took.

    Today, we give back.
    Maybe humanity does have some hope left.

  8. Xmarks+LastPass sounds great. now if you had a lovechild, would it be called XPass or LastMarks? ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  9. I never thought I will see the day when LastPass and Xmarks joining forces. Good job for the both of you.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think I'm in love!!! Fantastic news!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. This is fabulous. I've used LastPass about as long as Xmarks, and am a premium user there. This makes me very happy.

    (And, yes, I see the hint and realize it's time to pony up to meet my pledge. :-) )

    ReplyDelete
  12. Just purchased the premium service like I pledged...

    Good luck.

    ReplyDelete
  13. OUTSTANDING. BRILLIANT! Being discriminating consumers of good, functional and simple solutions, I'm not surprised to note that many XMarks users are also LastPass users, so this is indeed a match made in heaven and a bit of a dream come true.

    AND as noted above, we are now seeing a new Android app in the Android market, I'm extra thrilled about that and can't wait to try it out.

    Who would have ever thought that such a teaming of forces in the software world would have sparked such joy?

    Congratulations to both companies, and I think we'll all be watching in interest to see what kinds of new things will develop from the combined synergies of two such excellent companies.

    Now, both of you, go forth, prosper, and make a lot of money.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Great stuff!
    I have already subscribed to the Premium service!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. To me, a great b-day gift. Yeeeee!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. $12 dollars well spent. You upheld your end and so did I...now to play around with all those fancy new features :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. This is great news! I thought I have to say goodbye to my smooth, problem-free bookmarks syncing. I actually planned to unsubscribe and uninstall XMarks on December 31 . . . but now, I'm happy that I can keep my XMarks.

    Looking forward to check the premium services . . . GO, XMARKS/LASTPASS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Xmarks+LastPass=Ultimate browser sync combo!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hard to give money when I found new service bookmark.com that is similar service to xmarks.

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is a good news. I'm a long time user of both xmarks and lastpass and loving both! Glad to hear lastpass acquired xmarks instead of some unknown zyx venture/company.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm sold. Believe it or not, this is the final reason for me to buy a password manager as well. I'll be buying and downloading the bundle as soon as I find the link...

    ReplyDelete
  22. the two best together. now they can beat google ;)
    tchuss.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is excellent! I already use both services and was contemplating signing up for the LastPass premium service. The combined option sounds great! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. well, i don't have an android or iphone as of yet, but will have in the spring... but as you said, put up or shutup and $12/yr is half what I said I was willing to pay a couple months ago... Well Done guys Well Done!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yay!! Great news! Love them both.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have been using Xmarks when it was Foxmarks and Lastpass for a few years now. Whenever I had to use them on another computer, like my mom's, I wished they were one product. Wish granted! They are both the perfect systems singly and now perfect as one. Hubby uses roboform and I always show off what he is missing. Congratulations on a perfect union! I can't wait to see what Xmarks can now do for mobile phones.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is great news and a decent price.

    One thing I'd like to see be an option is to be able to change your username, especially if we are subscribers.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's an excellent news!
    The 2 best bookmark and password manager merging together!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I been waiting for this since Lastpass came out

    ReplyDelete
  30. Awesome. Give Cid a raise! Good work from the Head of Sales. Don't judge Sammy.
    Keep up the Great work LASTPASS TEAM!

    ReplyDelete
  31. What about your "Smarter Search" service? That was one of my favorite parts about xmarks (those search tags were remarkably useful in finding relevant search results in categories with an overpopulation of low-quality resources (such as "free web hosts")). And, as you said in the list of alternatives link from your Sep. 27th blog post, there is no known alternative for this particular service.

    ReplyDelete
  32. please support opera!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Glad to hear it! Well done Xmarks ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am glad that Xmarks will live another day, but I am disappointed that Bookmark backup and restore will be gone from the free version, as well as Open Tab syncing.

    Please allow use free users to have this functionality!

    Great job so far Xmarks!

    ReplyDelete
  35. This is great news!!

    Nice to know that the service will continue. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congratz to you guys...!
    lastpass and xmarks are two of my default tools for my syncing need, and now you work together...really great....!

    ReplyDelete
  37. will this mean that I will be receiving an upgrade to my iPad app?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Awesome combination of products! Will definitely purchase the combination package!

    ReplyDelete
  39. That's is the best Christmas gift that I can receive this year :). I`m very close to buy a Galaxy smartphone :D, thx LastPass, thx Xmarks team, and congratulations.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Congrats and thanks. I won't get the combo pack, as the stuff LastPass syncs is all private information and I'd rather have as few copies of that around as possible.

    @William: I wonder how many others will miss Smarter Search. I disabled it, myself...

    @Bob: I think it's entirely reasonable to charge for backup and open tab sync. Most users probably don't even realize Xmarks offers these features; and those that do are certainly heavy users who ought to be paying (if anyone should).

    ReplyDelete
  41. Good one guys. $12 a year is a pretty good price. Very pleased.

    ReplyDelete
  42. God save the Xmarks ;-)
    I will pay my due

    ReplyDelete
  43. Great! Now waiting for Opera extension :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Both apps are great. I m so happy that they are now together,.,,

    ReplyDelete
  45. Talk about a match-up of best-in-breed apps! I don't really need/want any of the features in LastPass Premium, but I may fork over the cash just to reward a good deed!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Please add support for Safari on Windows. I would love to be able to use Safari at work on Windows and sync with my Mac bookmarks at home. I know, I can use Firefox or Chrome, but I like Safari! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Great news that Xmarks will continue, but another vote to retain Backup and Restore feature with the free version please, even with reduced numbers (say last 5 or 10 versions?).

    ReplyDelete
  48. Christmas has come early!

    ReplyDelete
  49. That's fantastic, I LOVE lastpass, can't live without it! This is going to make a great team!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Fantastic! Love that the first thing you did was add an Android client. I need to look into what lastpass adds to the equation to decide what subscription level I want, but will be subscribing today (who am I kidding, I'll probably go for the $20 even if I have no use for lastpass functionality.....)

    ReplyDelete
  51. awesome - pledge made ....

    ReplyDelete
  52. Any idea if existing owners of the Xmarks iphone app will still get service without upgrading?

    ReplyDelete
  53. This is such good news. US$20 per year is a bargain for Xmarks alone IMHO, so the fact I've got it -- yes, I've done as I pledged -- together with LastPass can only be a WIN. Cheers, to the Xmarks and LastPass teams! Here's hoping it's a long and happy marriage!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Great to hear!! I have just honored my pledge...Keep up the great work!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Now i can sleep well.

    ReplyDelete
  56. What a perfect combination of strengths! Two of my favorite Web 2.0 services coming together. And thanks for the Android app, finally! Keep it up guys!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Purchased, as pledged. Now waiting for Apple to do their bit and all will be complete!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Delighted to be able to honor my pledge; just bought Xmarks Premium.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Fantastic news! I already use LastPass and had been mulling over getting a Premium subscription. Will now go and get the bundle.

    ReplyDelete
  60. PERFECT match. I'm glad it worked out, and with such a like-minded group.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Outstanding news! I've honored my pledge by purchasing Xmarks Premium. Can't wait for the iPhone app. :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. GREAT NEWS! Congratulations!!!

    Now the only other news i want the ear from you is that you will support Opera, PLEASE!

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  63. Paid Paid Paid !!!!!!!
    Thanks for Saving Xmarks
    There are not many services I pay for that don't reflect putting food on the table.
    BUT xmarks gets a subscription.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Thanks for saving Xmarks. I just paid for the premium as promised.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Good news!
    I saw the app on android market and WOW- it's today.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Awsome! Now I dont have to worry about where to go to sync my bookmarks.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Just upgraded to the bundle!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Congratulations! This is a great matchup of two great services. And a combo brings the value to a point that makes sense to pay for.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Nice! This blog post made my day! ;-) Just three weeks ago I looked for a backup solution to xmarks that would also store and synchronize my passwords and I decided to go with LastPass. I am really looking forward to the integration of both services!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Great news and I vote for Opera support ASAP - thanks again LastPass!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Just linked my LastPass & Xmarks account and upgraded. Thanks a bunch for rescuing such a worthwhile service.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Great News,
    Have been a LastPass Premium user for awhile now and love their product model. Great News Indeed.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Great news! I can think of no better solution. I am already a LastPass Premium user and I will support Xmarks too. Heck, installing both Lastpass and Xmarks are one of the first tasks I do in every new computer I use.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Great news, the bundle looks like a new solution to my current computer set up. Will give it a try

    ReplyDelete
  75. Superb news - I rate Lastpass extremely highly so this is great news if the partnership continues to offer the service it has in the past.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I knew it. I'm a LastPass premium user. Been using LastPass across my PC and Android device and when the news came regarding Xmarks closure the company that first came to my mind that could "get" Xmarks was LastPass. The makes a lot of sense. Well count me in as one of the Lastpass + Xmarks bundle subscribers.

    ReplyDelete
  77. For those of us who cancelled, any way to release our old usernames so that we can re-sign up? I want to sign up today if this happens.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Awesome! Just paid my premium dues and I'm checking out the android app right now. Glad Xmarks is going to be around for a while longer!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I consider this to be the best of all possible news. Already a LastPass subscriber, I have immediately switched my membership to LastPass Premium+XMarks Premium.

    Thanks a million for this, LastPass.

    ReplyDelete
  80. This is the best news I've heard all day. I was dreading the death of Xmarks and since I've had a paid LastPass account for some time and love it, I can't think of a better outcome. Congrats to Xmarks and LastPass.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Definitely good news!

    ReplyDelete
  82. F***********K YEAH!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Just a quick question: When password sync will be disabled from Xmarks? (and so, can I resync my passwords with lastpass sharing my Xmarks login data?)

    ReplyDelete
  84. Great news, congratulations! I'm one of those who pledged financial support, and as soon as I get an Android phone, I'll be sure to get the premium package. Thanks for making my cross-browser life easier!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Wonderful news!! Made my day!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Can't live without it. Wife finds it awesome

    ReplyDelete
  87. Love your service! Good to know u're still alive and kicking. Looking forward for xmark for iPhone. XD

    ReplyDelete
  88. I pledged. I paid. I'm happy. Thank you Xmarks and LastPass.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Good news and I'm glad to hear it.
    Just yesterday I reinstalled Xmarks because one of my folders went missing.

    Thanks to all involved for making this possible.

    ReplyDelete
  90. So does premium tab syncing mean that it will finally sync tabs in Safari also?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Lastpass + Xmarks + Dropbox FTW!

    kidding.. wow, great to see you hooked up with the other service I consider indispensable.

    Grats and Long Live the LastMarks Dynasty... heh. now need to spend some money to support you. To The PayPal Robin!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I didn't know about Lastpass before this - now you received my subscription money, AND I'm a very happy LastPass user as well :)

    Any plans on removing the password sync in XMarks, which admittedly suddenly seems extremely bare-bones compared to LastPass? :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. I really happy to hear this news!
    I have to tell this to my friends!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I stumbled on this page as I was looking for an alternative to XMarks since I still thought it was going away in January. I breathed a sigh of relief when I read this wonderful news that Last Pass is acquiring XMarks. I already use Last Pass and am confident that XMarks will continue to thrive under this new ownership!! Great news!!

    ReplyDelete
  95. In one word : Yesssssssssss :)

    ReplyDelete
  96. Question: Does this mean that you guys will stop supporting password syncing? It seems kinda redundant now that you've teamed up with LastPass.

    Anyways, I approve strongly of the company that is buying you guys out. Xmarks is an awesome product, and after reading up about LastPass, I think the two companies would work very well together.

    On a random note, this had to be some of the best ways for LastPass to advertise. I hadn't heard about them before, but after reading how they store the passwords, and their basic philosophies, I'm definitely going to start using LastPass.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Great news and I'm back as a customer after two days of firefox sync not working.

    ReplyDelete
  98. This is great news! Lastpass are both exceptional products!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Its a good thing you made it possible to use Google Checkout to buy Premium since not all people throughout the world can use Pay Pal :)

    Now I am off to register a premium account :)

    Oh and yes... Good to have you back ;)

    ReplyDelete
  100. good to hear you found a partner. i am already a lastpass user so I see a interesting team building up.

    I am glad i can rely on xmarks also for the future!

    cheers

    g.

    ReplyDelete
  101. My wife and I both use XMarks and we're excited to learn that it won't be going away in January. Would you consider offering a family pack or a couples pack? 2yearly memberships for $20 instead of 2@ $12 each?

    ReplyDelete
  102. With the new freemium model, I'm sure I'm not the only one wanting to know what exactly is going to happen in regards to Tab Sync. The current xmarks extension still syncs tabs. Is that going to eventually stop for free users or will it only apply to new users?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  103. Yeah... Just sign my Xmarks Premium membership. Hooray!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. 不错不错,现在皆大欢喜了....欢迎欢迎阿

    ReplyDelete
  105. What'ta wonderfoul news ! Last pass & Xmarsk are the best net tools for me ! Great !

    ReplyDelete
  106. great news! Thanks to Lastpass, and you guys are just great!

    ReplyDelete
  107. A good tool, with such a high quality will never die.
    Just... Thanks a lot for this.

    ReplyDelete
  108. With lastpass purchase of xmarks, I indirectly learned that lastpass in another great tool, and works faster than my Norton password safe. This is a powerful combo, lastpass and xmarks

    ReplyDelete
  109. This is good. I just wish I hadn't bothered switching to Mozilla's Sync when I read the announcement that Xmarks was finishing... it's nowhere near as good.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I mean I kind of think you jumped the gun a bit with the announcement. But whatever, I just reinstalled it and all my data is still there, which is pretty awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I am soooo happy I could burst. Now I have to get the premium ASAP. Hoot!!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Glad you guys can keep being the best bookmark manager on the planet.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I'd just like to say:
    THANK YOU!!!
    THANK YOU!!!
    THANK YOU!!!
    and
    BLESS YOU!!!!!!!!!

    I knew deep down that Xmarks was so good that there must be someone out there who would keep it going!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Glad Last Pass has saved this awesome site. I was really concerned on what site I would use to replace this one. Thanks so much for this.

    ReplyDelete
  115. The best Christmas present in the cyber world is LastPass stepping up to continue this awesome site. Thanks for a New Year's gift.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Fantastic. I listened to Steve Gibson's review of LastPass because I hadn't heard of it here:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4-h5gWpvAc
    and this looks like a terrific partnership.

    I found it a little tricky to buy the $20 bundle, but eventually figured it out here:
    https://lastpass.com/features_joinpremiumxmarks.php

    ReplyDelete
  117. No Google sync for me after all. This is fantastic news!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Ah brilliant. I use both XMarks and LastPass already. Great to see them merging.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Fantastic news! I'm indebted to xmarks for making my syncing of pages and pages of Bookmarks across my 7 browsers on 2 OS's. Cheers to LastPass for recognising the quality work from Xmarks to date!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I'm so very pleased that Xmarks has been rescued. It was with much misery that I went back to Google's alternative when I read the news Xmarks was going under, and the experience was just as painful as I remember it.

    Then this news came out, I switched back to Xmarks and happiness was restored. Seriously, it's that good and makes that much of a difference to my multi-computer browsing experience.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I did as promised and ordered the upgrade plus annual renewal.

    I am sooooooo happy this happened !!!

    ReplyDelete
  122. The news that Xmarks will continue its service comes as a great relief. Forgive me for mentioning that Firefox Sync & Google Sync are no match to Xmarks. I feel grateful to all the people who have endeavoured to keep Xmarks alive & kicking.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I hope James is still working three =(

    Anyway, i don't know why so many people hated Discovery features. I actually was looking for it after it's gone under Xmarks 3.9.2 update. And I just rolled back to 3.8.x version to have this feature back.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Could you maybe drop a subtle hint to them to improve their UX? The red has got to go, it's painful to look at. Also, I can't create an account. Their signup form appears in double for me, and then when I try to submit it their "loading" animation (who uses those anymore?) plays forever without creating my account. It makes me feel uneasy about using their service.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Nice to see this. I'm wondering about the strange coincidence of my last successful sync being on the same day as the announcement. My unsuccessful sync is only with Firefox 2.0.0.20. My newer machines, with Firefox 3, work fine. I'm having trouble finding some place on the xmarks.com site to look for how to troubleshoot this. Hmmm...

    ReplyDelete
  126. What will happen to the iPhone app - will it still work without a premium account? Just out of curiosity, I'll make good on my pledge anyway

    ReplyDelete
  127. Congrats guys! Glad to see Xmarks will live on :)

    ReplyDelete
  128. Glad to hear that, I just upgraded for 2 years ;)

    Thanks,

    disi

    ReplyDelete
  129. This is by far the best news! I have been very happily using both Xmarks and LastPass for a long time now, and they are two of the most indispensable utilities that I use all day, every day with personal and work computers along with iPhone and iPad. Without them I would be an un-synchronized mess. Thank you, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Great news. Yes, I pledged to pay for the premium service and I just signed up for it. I actually won't have much use for the premium service but decided to pay for it anyway as a way of saying thanks for this great app and working so hard to keep it alive!

    ReplyDelete
  131. SO you're saying that if I honor my pledge I can keep helping support Xmarks... AND GET LASTPASS as well!!! What an AWESOME outcome!

    ReplyDelete
  132. I’ve made good on my pledge - and you on yours. THX :-)

    ReplyDelete
  133. I've made good on my Promise.. I'd never heard of lastpass until the acquisition but once I saw it I took advantage of the bundle premium price.

    I'm required to use Windows at work but all of my home computers are Linux systems. It is a mix of Debian and Gentoo systems. I was quite worried when I first heard about the possibility of xmarks going away, but I am glad it is here to stay. Where else would I go to have the cross platform capabilities that I've come to depend on with xmarks!

    I was already a user of lastpass (free version) and have made good my pledge to purchase Xmarks plus I bought lastpass as well

    ReplyDelete
  135. I pledged to contribute to Xmarks, and as soon as Christmas is over, I'll be purchasing my premium version of Xmarks!

    ReplyDelete
  136. I sat down at the computer tonight thinking "ok, time finally to figure out what I'm going to do when XMarks goes away." Decided to look at the home page one more time to see if there was a suggested transition process. Was stunned and pleased :) to see XMarks will continue in new partnership w/ LastPass.

    God bless Last Pass.

    I can't afford a subscription now, as I haven't been paid since August, but will at the earliest opportunity.

    I haven't seen the mass e-blast letting people know to continue w/ XMarks. maybe I missed it. I hope not too many people removed XMarks.

    I found out about XMarks through Firefox. Maybe they can do an announcement too.

    Good luck w/ the merger.... may you find the commercial success you deserve by providing this great product... and thanks. --russjohnson

  137. spread the word!
    I was in the process of migrating to Foxsync when I stumbled on this. Really: make some noise.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Great deal! I pledged to pay if there would be a premium version of xmarks an dit it yesterday. Now I use both xmarks and lastpass together. Thanks a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Great! Great! Great! thanks, LastPass.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Just like many other I just made good on my pledge and upgraded to Premium. Can't be happier to see that you are still here and will continue to be here!

  141. It's awesome and glad that Xmarks can be continued, I have been using it since foxmark era, it's the greatest add-on for all time!

    ReplyDelete
  142. I'll even go Premium BUT ONLY with my old username...

    ReplyDelete
  143. Can you folks reinstate our deleted XMarks accounts?

    You even told us to go to Firefox Sync.. now if I return to XMarks, I'd at least like to be able to login using my old username. Even THAT I can't do...

    Help..please?

  146. I had never heard of LastPass until the news from Xmarks. I honored my pledge and took advantage of the combo package and couldn't be happier with how well it works! I hope the merger between the companies is a great success!

    ReplyDelete
  147. That's great! Thanks to LastPass Guys for keeping XMarks alive. Hope it will be a good investment.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Finally, i pledged for the premium account, today i finally got the time to get premium, to support you guys i got the package also and now im a happy premium customer on both services.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Way, cool!!! I've been using LastPass and Xmarks as my syncing solution duo for years. Nice that they are "under the same roof" now!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Brilliant news! I too have been a user of Lastpass & XMarks. I've been undecided about the upgrade to lastpass premium for a while now, but this (along with my pledge) will seal the deal. 2 great new apps for my iphone!

    ReplyDelete
  151. what is the difference between one and the other

    ReplyDelete
  152. Wow, I just stumbled across this news tonight about Xmarks not going bye-bye after all. Hooray!

    And for once in my lifetime, my procrastinating habits paid off! I'd postponed changing over to Firefox Sync, and now I'm SO glad I did. Now, my Xmarks acct. is intact, and alive & well. Whew!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Thank you Xmarks and LastPass! You finally did it, congratulations!
    Xmarks is in my top 3 browser addons and can't live without it, there are no similar products that can compete with its quality and reliability. I am still not decided to go premium since I don't own an Android phone but I am just a tiny step from getting a year subscription.
    Long life to Xmarks!

  154. "4.5 million users syncing .... across 5 million computers"

    Do the math.... most people only have one computer. Do you realize you're more of a backup service than a syncing service? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  155. Well, perhaps it's true that most have only one computer... but, my brother uses it across 2, I use it across 6, as well as multiple browsers on any one machine. It is definitely the syncing feature we're after; I have an encrypted home server if I just want to back up.

    ReplyDelete
  156. upgrade to premium <3

    ReplyDelete
  157. Oh my God! This is so awesome! Thanks, guys!

    ReplyDelete
  158. Keith, well it depends, I love the idea that I can use the same bookmarks across multiple browsers. And use the same bookmarks at home and at work (well that is more than one computer).

    ReplyDelete
  159. I might give LastPass a try. Did not Xmarks support password syncing too? But I have never used it. And I guess Xmarks only sync browser's password, while LastPass allow you to enter custom notes. On my personal system, I use it to put anything, website password + info I have provided (e.g. First Name, Last Name, Email), software registration info, life's account info, lock number (e.g. 12-32-22), etc. So an "account manager" would need to support that, be very flexible and fast to use when I need it.

  160. Just joined to premium account (lastpass + xmarks). Hope to see both plataforms sinergically working.

    Happy 2011 for everybody.

    I don't think I've been this excited about a product in years. As promised, I am happy to say, I will be making my premium purchase tomorrow when I get paid!!

    ReplyDelete
  162. Thank you!!! As soon as I get an Android, I'll be purchasing the premium. I love you Xmarks! Thanks for keeping me organized, I'd be lost without you my love.

    ReplyDelete
  163. It is really a very very good news that Xmarks has been aquired and it is going to continue to give all the essential features provided earlier for free. I was totally shocked to see the email of shutdown of xmarks back in september and sadly looked for alternatives which came in the form of foxsync.

    Now i have started using google chrome but i was missing a bookmark and password sync provided by xmarks.

    But accidentally when i was browsing for a password sync for google chrome i came across xmarks aquisition news, thank goodness. Otherwise i would have missed this great free extension for bookmarks and password for how long god only know.

    I am slightly disappointed at the new team because, I would have really appreciated the news of your acquisition in my email inbox.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Great news! Long live, you guys!

    ReplyDelete
  165. Just received the email, congratulations to everyone at Xmarks. This is a nice X-MAS present.

    ReplyDelete
  166. With the Jan 1 deadline quickly approaching I was dreading the thought of losing the only true cross-platform bookmark sychronization tool on the market. Getting the email about LastPass and them keeping the free version was a nice pre-Christmas stocking stuffer. Thanks to the entire Xmarks team that created and have maintained such an awesome product.

    ReplyDelete
  167. All right...
    Any way, Xmarks survive....
    congratulations

    ReplyDelete
  168. You don't know how happy this made me this morning!! I was starting to sweat to find a new solution. Long live XMarks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  169. I guess I speak for all of your users: !TERRIFIC!, you're saved and can carry on!
    (... none of all of your look-a-likes are a real substitute: we would've been set back)
    Keep on doing the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  170. VERY HAPPY TO HEAR THIS!

    Nice CHRISTmas present!

    CONGRATS!

    ReplyDelete
  171. Guys, this is soooo great! Actually I overjoyed now, because this whole time I thought Xmarks is going to die next month and I were mourning because I couldn't find a really proper substitute for it and I liked using all functions of my Xmarks so much. And today I recieved e-mail with such good news! I don't really need premium account ( no android and my mobile really old and can't access internet :))) but I still bought it because I hoped so much for this miracle to happen and vowed that I would definitely pay for it if Xmarks will be able to survive. So I am happy for you guys - you were able to do it! Just continue to help us using web with comfort and we will love you even more! :)))

  172. A lot of excitement in the tech field of late. Congratulations on the merger.

    Although I was expecting a merger or acquisition, I must admit that I relieved with this good news. I am looking forward for the new set up.

  178. Extremely happy that lastpass has acquired xmarks. Lastpass is an excellent service provider already and xmarks is an excellent product. Thank you for enriching the internet.

  179. What a nice Christmas surprise! Happy holidays everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  180. great christmas present, guys ! happy holidays !

    ReplyDelete
  181. It's exactly who I was hoping would acquire xmarks. I kept thinking that LastPass needs to add bookmarks to their vault. With this acquisition I can see an eventual merger of both systems leading to an unrivaled product.

    ReplyDelete
  182. Congratulation guys. You guys deserve it.

    ReplyDelete
  183. You guys mind sharing how much you sold the site for???

    ReplyDelete
  184. That's good news guys. Congrat.

    ReplyDelete
  185. I wonder if they plan on farming out data like Xmarks did when they took over foxmarks.
    I'd be interested as thats why I removed the addon. Nothing more unnerving than other people seeing what I bookmark.

    ReplyDelete
  186. chinese government have ban Xmark, we can't access Xmark's server, can find a solution to meet our need?

    ReplyDelete
  187. I've just been using Firefox Sync ever since I read Xmarks was going to perish and it works perfectly well. Too bad I use Opera Mobile on my cell phone and had to get Opera on my laptop to sync the bookmarks from Firefox though...

    ReplyDelete
  188. Keepass is free and Google has bookmark management accessible from anywhere with any browser. Why use this?

    ReplyDelete
  189. The merger of two must-have utilities (must-have for frequent travelers like me, who need to sync bookmarks across desktop and laptop computers, and use passwords securely when overseas, and not type them in) is great news.

    If you are looking for another project for travelers, I'd like to suggest a sync program for email. At present, I have to copy over my desktop email client (Thunderbird) to my laptop when I begin a trip, and reverse the process when I return home. It would be very nice to have all my received, sent and filed mail (basically the entire email package) sync'd, similar to xmarks. It should support multiple email addresses, as well.

    Anyhow, keep up the good work.

  190. Scusatemi XMARKS continuera a memorizzare GRATUITAMENTE come oggi,ed importante saperlo non VOGLIO PERDERE le mie PASSWOORD,rispondetemi vi PREGO
