Xmarks is currently Firefox only, but it syncs perfectly with your existing Foxmarks Web account and the Foxmarks add-ons for Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari.

You’ll also notice that Foxmarks.com is still a separate site. In the coming weeks, Foxmarks website will be fully rebranded and also release an Xmarks upgrade for the Internet Explorer and Safari add-ons.
