    • I'm testing Xmarks for 5 five weeks to sync a good 7K bookmarks (tags etc). Pros: + compatible with much more browsers and versions than Sync + Less lag as it does not sync permanently + More choices, eg replace server' or browser's bookmarks + Shows when it needs to sync + Backup every hour (and allows to get a look on the data you may restore) Cons - Bookmarks not encrypted localy - CLUF gives Lastpass full right to use all our data - Do fucks up when thousands of bookmarks and lots of folders
    • Xmarks by Lastpass.com allows for a wider browsers' compatibilty, more customization and monitoring than Mozilla's Sync (which is not difficult !). It has his own weaknesses, like issues when over 5K bookmarks and privacy related TOS.

Firefox Sync Comments

fortunate: local crypt before upload

about Firefox Sync and TrueCrypt Aug 2014

Fortunately content is encrypted on your device prior to uploading. This is better than the contrary and better than "services" which create the key for "your convenience"

If the data can be retrieved under subpoena it is NOT SECURE.

about Firefox Sync Jun 2011

Very good comparison (1) of cross-browser-bookmark-synchronization-services :
It seems, that Xmarks (2) has no real competitor concerning the cross-browser-bookmark-synchronization-abilities.
No other bookmark-sync-service than Xmarks is able to sync Bookmarks (and passwords) across IE, FF, Chrome, Mac OS X10, iPhone and iPad.
Additionally you quickly can share a Xmarks-folder (with subfolders) with your personal internet-bookmarks online as webpage and you can vote and see the average voting of other Xmarks-users for the quality of sites.
Further as an alternative to the Xmarks server you can use your own server for your bookmarks, and you also can sync the passwords across all your used browsers and computers, if you want.
Bookmark.com (3) has no Chrome-support and a bad reputation on (4), whereas the reputation of Xmarks is excellent on (5) nearly equal to the excellent reputation of AlternativeTo.net, see (6).

about Firefox Sync Jun 2011

Tried both Weave as XMarks, and Mozilla won me with their easy, clean and simple setup. Pro for XMarks is that it works throughout multiple browsers where Weave is Mozilla browsers only. Since I work Firefox-only the easy and full featured sync of Weave beats XMarks hands down for me nonetheless.
