So it’s official: my bookmark synchronization platform and plugin of choice, Xmarks, will be taken over by password-storing service LastPass. Creepy in theory, but actually fairly secure, LastPass offers a series of browser plugins that allow users to manage passwords for a variety of services and then sync them to other platforms. You know, like Xmarks, only for passwords.
As I already use LastPass, I think this is a good fit.
Xmarks has also rolled out their freemium pricing scheme: $12 USD per year, or $20 when bundled with LastPass Premium. Makes sense to me.
