This Looks Like a Trend

Xmarks Bookmark Syncing Service Shutting Down in January 2011, fast on the heels of SiteProbe Goes For-Pay.

IMPORTANT: Xmarks Sync to be Discontinued

Sadly, Xmarks will be shutting down our free browser synchronization service on January 10, 2011. … For more detail on why we're closing our doors, please see our blog post.

I like Xmarks (formerly Foxmarks). Between it and Dropbox moving between my laptop and my desktop, not to mention between home and office, has become a lot easier.

Let it be noted that Xmarks are going out classy: they promise to delete user data, not to try to monetize it, and they have provide browser-specific instructions on how to migrate to alternate syncing tools.

Thank you guys — you were great.
