Announcing Xmarks for Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks

Today, we’re happy to announce a new version of Xmarks for Safari with support for Mac OS 10.9 “Mavericks”. Since Apple made significant changes to their sync architecture in Safari with their latest release, essentially ending support for the previous functionality we used, we undertook the task of rebuilding Xmarks to support Safari. Despite the challenges, these updates benefit Xmarks users in the long run, now that the product is leaner and faster than ever.

The new version of Xmarks for Safari can be downloaded at https://download.xmarks.com/download/macosx_10_5 and provides support for the newest versions of Mac OS X, but should be compatible with previous Mac versions back to 10.5.

What about syncing Xmarks with iCloud?


We will continue to explore a direct iCloud sync option, so that you could sync Xmarks to iCloud, and let iCloud sync to Safari, iPad, and other Mac and iOS devices. While this feature has many inherent challenges, we’re considering our options and hope to support iCloud sync in the future.

Can I keep running Xmarks 1.4.3?


If the previous version of Xmarks is working for you, you can continue to run it. A direct link to the old download is here: https://static.xmarks.com/clients/safari/xmarks_for_safari_1.4.3.dmg - however, we do not plan to continue to develop this version and it will not work with OS X 10.9.

We continue to work hard to improve the service overall. Over the last year, we’ve been focused on strengthening the underlying sync architecture and scaling the product. Moving forward, we’ll be focused on building new features for both the free and Premium service.


Best,
The LastPass & Xmarks Team

  1. Xmarks still refuses to sync under 10.9, last sync back on November 10th. I was kind of expecting better from this update.

    1. Hi Jimmy - if you're running the latest download, can you grab your error log (https://helpdesk.xmarks.com/troubleshooting/sending-us-your-log-file/) and submit it in a ticket (https://buy.xmarks.com/supportticket.php)? We'd like to take a look.

    3. Resolved: I had to remove the old app from applications manually and then run the installer again. Now again a happy Xmarks user, thanks.

    4. Sirs,
      A few years ago, after starting to use Chrome, I had to remove Xmarks from my computer, as it was continuously messing both my Firefox and Chrome bookmarks.

      Today I saw the last Xmarks release for Windows OS so, remembering its old-times good performance, I tried the add-on for Firefox.

      OMG! After uploading my local valid bookmarks to update my Xmarks site ... I FOUND BOTH THE LOCAL AND THE SERVER BOOKMARKS EMPTY ;(
      (only thanks to FF I was able to restore my previous bookmarks).

      Sorry sirs, I was hoping that - under the LastPass supervision - the Xmarks could perform well again as when it started... Now I tell you that I'll never use your program!

  3. Still no option to use your own server for browsers other than Firefox? I really miss that feature, and desire it even more in light of recent hacks and the PRISM scandal.

  4. My 2¢:

    Can you make some notation on the the download page as to when the posted version was made available? Also, can you include "Now works with OS X 10.9 Mavericks."? Alternatively, list all the compatible versions? I didn't even know xmarks didn't work with Mavericks until I got the announcement that now it does work with Mavericks. Furthermore, the page still says Safari 4, 5. Why not "Safari 4, 5, & 6"

    Keeping your download page updated with complete information would help facilitate communication.

  5. Does this update solve the duplication of bookmarks when using Google's Chrome sync?

    Also, you may want to install an automated spam filter in this blog.

    1. That's not an Xmarks issue; it needs to be changed on the Chrome side. Go into Chrome Settings, Sync, Choose what to Sync & uncheck Bookmarks, then use Xmarks Deduplication tool to clean up. If you're using LastPass or something similar to manage your passwords, you probably want to turn off Chrome Password Sync, too. I don't have any of my browsers saving/syncing PWs...or bookmarks - I have LP & Xmarks handle all that since I'm cross-browser, cross-platform. The first thing I do when I set up any new browser is to turn off in-built PW/bookmark syncing on those & install LP/Xmarks instead.

      +1 on the spam filter, too!

  6. @Amber, it would sure be nice if Xmarks would share a little more info with their users, at least premium, on what you're doing. It's been so long since I've heard anything out of you that it almost seems you're just collecting money & letting Xmarks run on autopilot!

    My $0.02 - I'd steer clear of trying to sync with proprietary syncing services, ala iCloud, because you'll only complicate things, risk duplication complaints & perhaps cause demand for direct synicing to Chrome Sync, Firefox Sync, etc. Those others serve a purpose but don't provide what Xmarks was originally created to resolve - cross-browser, cross-platform syncing. Plus, you'd effectively provide a direct means for users not to need your premium service to sync to mobile!
