Xmarks Plugin Now Available for Android Dolphin Browser

Xmarks is a cross-platform bookmark synchronization service that lets you make sure you ensure you have the same bookmarks on your home and work PC. It supports Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. The basic service is free, but for $12 per year you can upgrade to a Pro account which also lets you use the company’s mobile apps for iOS and Android. The latest iPhone app basically syncs your bookmarks with a standalone browser which is kind of clunky to use, while the Android app syncs your bookmarks with the Android browser. But the developers have just released a new plugin for the Dolphin HD browser which lets you sync your bookmarks with that app instead.

A few weeks ago password management service LastPass announced it had acquired Xmarks, which makes the release a Dolphin HD plugin kind of a no-brainer. LastPass already offers a password management plugin for the browser.

In order to use the Xmarks plugin, download and install the app from the Android Market and then fire up the Dolphin HD browser on your phone. Read the rest of this entry »

  1. I’m happy to see Xmarks rescued at the zero hour. Although I’ve moved onto Chrome and Google’s sync capabilities these days. Mozilla is working on similar. Of course, those are locked to their respective platforms.

  2. Yeah, the main thing Xmarks has going for it at this point is cross-browser compatibility. So if you’re stuck with Internet Explorer at work and use IE at home, you can still sync your bookmarks (assuming you can install Xmarks).

  3. I believe we can install plugins, but that’s not currently as issue as I run an install-free PortableApps version of Chrome. I’d say I’m 80% Chrome across Windows and OS X these days. Although there was about 2 painful weeks of probs with a busted Flash client on within Chrome’s OS X browser.
