Use Foxmarks to Synch Your Firefox Bookmarks

February 2, 2008 – 7:48 pm by Gabe Anderson | 3 Comments

Do you use Firefox on more than one computer? (You do use Firefox, right?) Maybe you already use a Web-based bookmark organizer like del.icio.us or Ma.gnolia.com — which are nice, but not always as fast as local bookmarks.

Or maybe your bookmarks are trapped on your computer. What will you do if your computer crashes or if you want to access your bookmarks remotely?

Enter Foxmarks. I’ve found Foxmarks to the simplest, most reliable bookmark synchronization tool. Set it up once and forget about it.

Foxmarks

With Foxmarks, you can do all of the following:

  • Set up as many Firefox browsers to synch as you’d like.
  • Tell Foxmarks to automatically keep your bookmarks in synch, so whenever you move between computers, you’ll always have your latest and greatest sites right at your fingertips.
  • Download your bookmarks from the server to a new computer, so you’re immediately ready to rock.
  • Access your bookmarks from anywhere via My Foxmarks.

Foxmarks is a free Firefox extension, so installation and setup is a snap.

  2. Foxmarks now will sync your passwords as well as your bookmarks. Do you know if this is secure?

  3. Good question, Matt. They’re definitely secure during transfer and when stored on the Foxmarks server, so this method is no more or less secure than having your passwords stored in your browser.

    Personally, I store all my passwords in RoboForm and sync my RoboForm profile folder between machines using FolderShare.
