Using it is very simple. Go to Xmarks' website and download the appropriate add-on for your browser here: http://download.xmarks.com/download/all . Next, create an Xmarks account and sync your bookmarks to the Xmarks cloud.
Once you have your bookmarks synced to the Xmarks cloud, all you have to do is install the Xmarks add-on to each browser and/or computer you use and sync that specific install with your Xmarks account. Whenever you add a new bookmark to any of your browsers, the change will sync to the cloud and then update when you open the other browsers on the same computer or different computer.
I've found Xmarks to be most helpful when using a work computer and home computer. If I'm using my work computer and find something that I want to bookmark, I just bookmark it the conventional way (protip: CTRL+D on PC and CMD+D on Mac are the default shortcuts for bookmarking in browsers), and when I open the browser on my home computer, it will sync with Xmarks and show my new bookmark.
|Syncing is very easy with Xmarks.|
Xmarks also gives you the option of syncing your passwords. In regards to storing passwords, Xmarks says: "Password Sycnhronization encrypts your passwords using a secret PIN of your choosing before they ever leave your computer. This ensures that nobody but you, not even Xmarks, can gain access to your passwords." (On a side note, I store my forum passwords in Xmarks but not others since I like to think storing them in my head is most trustworthy.)
