This company was founded in 2006 as Foxmarks, offering a popular free bookmark synchronization add-on for the Firefox Web browser.
In February 2009 the company release versions of their bookmark sync product for Internet Explorer and Safari (Mac only).
In March 2009, the company announced their new name Xmarks and their new web discovery service. Xmarks.com shows site information for a broad range of URLs and, for each site, generates a list of topics and similar sites based on millions of users' bookmarks.
The Xmarks brower add-on takes the site info and similar sites on Xmarks.com and displays them directly in the browser bar and on the search results page of Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
