On my iMac and MacBook Air, I alternate between the Chrome and Firefox browsers. When on my iPad or iPhone, I use the default Safari browser. You might assume keeping bookmarks in sync across all these browsers and devices is a nightmare. It isn’t, and that's because of Xmarks. All my bookmarks are stored automatically on Xmarks’ servers and synced across the browsers on my Macs. The Xmarks app gives me access to all my bookmarks when I’m using my iPad or iPhone, too.
