Anyone who uses Xmarks will know it was due to cease operating in Jan. They have just emailed to say they have been bought out.
Am v.pleased about this :-)
Thank you for your continued support of Xmarks through this transitional time. After a near-brush with shutting down, we're now happy to report that Xmarks has been acquired by LastPass, the leading password and data manager.
The acquisition means two things for Xmarks users:
1. Xmarks is NOT shutting down! It will continue to be the same free service that you know and love.
2. Xmarks now offers a Premium service for $12 per year that includes the iPhone and Android apps, advanced features, and priority support.
We hope that as an active Xmarks user, you will consider upgrading to Xmarks Premium to gain access to these features. Your support will not only ensure our long-term viability, but will also help accelerate the introduction of new features and service improvements.
We're excited to continue providing the best data-syncing tools out there!
