Xmarks - The Browser Plugin Everyone should have

If you are like myself, you use a computer at work, home, and you might even have a laptop for your mobile computing needs. We all like to stay organized in some fashion, and having bookmarks all over the place is just crazy in this day and age.

I found my solution to this day old problem of wanting to have my bookmarks all in one place a few years ago. I stumbled across Xmarks a small browser add on that allowed you to synchronize your bookmarks from one computer to another with out any user intervention. It just did it, and it worked great.  At that time it was only available for the firefox browser.

Now xmarks is available for all major browsers IE, Fire Fox,Chrome, Safari) and operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux). So there is no real excuse for you to not have this wonderful addon.

Even if you don't have a 2nd computer that you want to sync your bookmarks to, this is still a must have addon. You can use it to backup your bookmarks, or login to your account via the web to access your bookmarks from anywhere on the web.

xmarks has been recently rolled into the lastpass company and they are now offering a premium service to include mobile devices. But the free version still works for me. I just want all my bookmarks to be accessible when I need them.
