How to synchronize bookmarks across Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox?

As I currently understand Google Chrome puts bookmarks separately from Google Bookmarks, which is accessible in Firefox by using Google Toolbar for Firefox. Right? So how should I synchronize bookmarks across my browsers? I use Google Chrome as my primary browser and it works good and bookmarks are synchronized across number of computers I’m using.

Synchronize bookmarks between Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome and vice versa is very simple easy. We do know that Google have independent Bookmarks. This is different from Google Chrome’s Bookmarks. And we can do synchronization between Google Bookmark (not Google Chrome’s Bookmarks) and Mozilla Firefox Bookmarks through Google Toolbar. Even now Google stop provide Google Toolbar for Mozilla Firefox.

 

For synchronize bookmarks of these browsers, you should give Xmarks extension a try. Not only can you do cross-browser, but you can set up profiles for different computers (Work/Home/Custom) and determine which bookmarks/folders go with each profile. In addition, you can sync Passwords, or Open Tabs on each computer, but only if you want to, of course.

 

To use Xmarks, just go to http://www.xmarks.com/ from Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, click on button INSTALL NOW on their homepage.

Step 11. Do as Step 7, and then click on Synchronize Now.

Then Xmarks will do synchronize bookmarks between Chrome and Firefox, making the two browser’s bookmarks in synchronization.

 

HOWEVER, as a common sense, make sure to turn off bookmarks sync in both Chrome & Firefox on all machines prior to using Xmarks. It is truly a nightmare when all bookmarks sync service are fighting, duplicating exponentially bookmarks across computers.
