Foxmarks the killer app for Firefox?

I've been using Foxmarks a bookmark synchronizer for FireFox for the last year or so.

Its just this little icon on the corner of Firefox

It is fantastic, it kills by a mile. It so easy its just totally behind the scenes and I can organize my bookmarks using the standard bookmark manager. Check it out if you can. No crappy extra menu like delicious which, when i last used it, had no sub menus and i had to regroup/organize every single one of my existing bookmarks. No way! They lost me.

is my browser of choice because it forces Microsoft to innovate and competition is a good thing. I encourage everyone to download Firefox and use it as their primary browser with Foxmarks as their bookmark synchronization program, if for no other reason than a monopoly on the internet is not a good thing. I don't mind there being big players and small players but without a critical mass people won't write their pages to work with Firefox, so no one will use it, so there will be a real incentive for Microsoft to create proprietary standards. I'm assuming you are the technical elite or why are you reading a blog on software? Go download Firefox, so it keeps its critical mass, which will keep standards Open and maintain internet diversity.

Its Free! 10/10 Foxmarks! Get Firefox.

Another cool feature of Foxmarks is the feature. Very handy if you want to access your stored bookmarks from someone else's PC with messing around with their book marks.
