15 Best Free XMarks Alternatives For Bookmarks Synchronization 2020
Xmarks Alternatives 2020

Very sadly XMarks was shut down once LastPass bought it. Talk about creating an Eco-System. It was loved and used by millions of users daily. Now, as it is offline, we have collected the 15 best XMarks alternatives for 2020!

We use this to sync all bookmarks that we have collected over the recent years on windows and Linux. It works in the best possible way. It helps to sync chrome, and Firefox lives.

15 Best XMarks Alternatives 2020 – Take your Browser Bookmarks to another level

Google Bookmarks

This can be used both on Firefox and Google Chrome browsers which makes it:

  • Browser ready.
  • Cross-platform.

For the Firefox there is Gmarks that shall connect with the google servers. You shall get all the desired results but keep in mind that there is no way to create multiple profiles like in Xmarks.

Users can:

  • Create folders.
  • Use labels.
  • Thinks tags.
  • Manage in a better way.
  • Find them all.

The bookmarks are linked with the google account that means if the user is looking for some separate profiles, then they would have to create a different account of google. This is possible, but it won’t be as fast as Xmarks.

Chrome and Firefox

XMarks for Chrome and Firefox

Google Chrome and Firefox, in the early days of new-age browsers when the internet was the default, dominant and the only option were not good at synching and managing the bookmarks. As time has changed now, they can do so. Although both of them are not enabled by cross-platform and do not work within their confines, still they are considered to be a pretty reliable and reasonable option.

The user can choose anyone from them and stick with their choice for the rest of their lives. The best part is that both of them are available from windows and mac to Linux and Android. We prefer chrome but being a tech enthusiast, we like to and sometimes have to use both of them.

Eversync – Sync IE and Edge Bookmarks with ease

EverSync Xmark Alternative

This choice is available for the internet explorer apart from chrome and Firefox and iOS and Android. You won’t see any mention of edge browser anywhere. It comes with the following essential function:

  • Users can add and save bookmarks, and then it can be synced across the devices.

Now during the testing phase, it creates different entries of the same bookmark, which became a nuisance, we had faced the same issue with Xmarks, but this was quite different. It can carry double entry, but in here there were other entries at times 4 to 5. We did a quick research and found out that we were not the only ones facing this issue.

If you are willing to take the free version then it can manage only:

  • 156000 personal.
  • 200 private.
  • 600 archive.

For us, this was enough. You can think of all the archive bookmarks as trash folder that you can tap once you have deleted the bookmark. The user needs to sync manually, which kind of defeats the purpose. If you are thinking of the pro-version, then it would cost you around $4.99 plus comes with an auto-sync.

Diigo – Bookmark Socially

Diggo Chrome Bookmark Extension

As google bookmarks works, it leaves much to be desired. Now this is a bookmarking toolbar but with a difference. It picked uplifts were once the dominant delicious lift it. This allows users to:

  • Bookmark and organize their favourite websites.
  • Annotate and highlight pages using a built-in tool.

This is available for both iOS and Android platforms but also work as separate applications inspite of the toolbar in your google chrome or Firefox browsers. This is where it falls short.

Another honorary mention is suitable, which has seen much decline in its popularity after the phenomena of social media.

Sync2it BookmarkSync – Cross-Platform Support

Sync2it BookmarkSync Extension for Mac and PC

This is a bookmark manager that comes in free. This can be installed on Windows and Mac systems. You need to download and install it, and it shall work out of the system tray. This can:

  • Detect changes in the browser bookmarks and replicate it.

Keep one thing in your mind that the application will only detect IE on Windows and Safari on Mac. This option is not for you if you are Chrome and Firefox user. This is seemed to be a real alternative, but if you are using the browsers mentioned above, then this shall not work for you.

The best part is that with this:

  • It can subscribe to other people’s publicly available bookmarks.

This is a much more relaxed way to discover and explore new websites.

Note: As we were trying to download this, we almost installed search manager thinking it was part of the setup.

Ymarks – Open Source all the way

YMarks Open Source Browser Bookmarks

This one comes in free and is open source. It carries a chrome and IE extension, but the official website does not list a Firefox addon. You can find the addon on Firefox repository.

It carries the ability to host bookmark on a server. Users can add a host locally, but we recommend the former option as it ensures better privacy and security. Users can also run different instances of this if they want to.

Raindrop.io – AIO Choice

Raindrop Browser Bookmark

This one is a freemium bookmark manager that is available for all the platforms, browsers and operating systems. It comes in two flavours.

  • The free version allows users to save and sync bookmarks across devices and operating system.
  • The paid version, which is for $3 per month, allows users to find and delete the duplicate entries, have nested collections, use tags and check for all the broken links.

The best thing about this one is that you can keep all the nested collection intact after you have downgraded from pro to free version. It is also used to:

  • Sync with your Dropbox account to take regular backups. This is a pro feature.

Start.me – DIY Choice

Start.me Browser Bookmarking

This is an all in one service application. This offers users with widgetized start page where they can configure various widgets of news, notes, RSS feeds, links and others which include email, calendar, weather, to-do list and much more.

It carries a friendly user interface. To add a new block or widgets, you need to use a single + button. Users can change drag and drop interface to organize blocks and devices on the homepage.

It also has a drawback; it does not sync with the bookmarks of the browser. The user would need to add them inside the extension of start.me to sync with its account.

RoboForm – Passwords, Wallets and all

Extensions like XMarks that are free

This is advertised as a password manager and digital wallet, but it is used to sync bookmarks as well. This is seemed to be the best combo for any user out there who wants to have passwords all together on each device.

It comes in free if you do not want to sync all of your data across all devices. You can also get the pro version which shall cost you around $19.95 per year. This includes automatic sync along with many other features.

  • Evernote
  • Read It Later
  • TidyFavorites
  • Bookmaker
