RE: Your Reliable Bookmarks & Passwords Organizer
Dear Avid Bookmarkers,
Xmarks Bookmark and Password Sync Review
Though Xmarks doesn’t shine as much as the feature- and platform-rich BookmarkSync; there’re plenty of functionalities in Xmarks that makes itself an awesome cross-platform syncing solution.
Seamless Bookmark Access
Imagine the pages that you frenziedly bookmarked on different browsers – Firefox3+, IE7+, Safari 4+ and Chrome can all be accessed from one single location. You simply signup for Xmark account and install the application on every machines with bookmarks you intend to sync except that it’s a plug-in within Firefox.
Within your my.xmarks.com account, create as many profiles and discreetly group relevant folders/links from the master bookmarks list respectively. Just like playlists, assigning desired profile to a machine will reflect your chosen preset bookmarks. Even in computers without Xmarks installed, you can still access the bookmarks from my.xmarks.com. Besides allowing backup/restore of bookmarks 3 months back, anytime you decide to share specific profile, Xmarks will generate RSS feed and Webpage URLs for easy distribution.
One Password, Multiple Access
While previously this feature parks within Xmarks, it’s finally break free from platform limitation and emerged with IE6+, Firefox2+, Chrome18+, Safari5+ and Opera11+ support under lastpass.com. Whereas existing Xmarks user can simply do a 2-minute database migration, you can create new account here with email address and master password and install the app on each machine.
Upon logging in, each site that you accessed with username and password will be encrypted and memorized when you choose to save the site and further assigned different identities akin to profiles in Xmarks. The next time you login to saved sites from anywhere, simply activate LastPass with master password beforehand to bypass manual login which prevent phishing and key logger attempts.
Even when accessing from public computers, LastPass protects you by granting activation with onetime password which you can pre-generate within your account. Smart and neat, don’t you think?
