Xmarks announced that it has been acquired by LastPass and introduced a new premium service that costs $12 per year.
The company isn't going to make it, but the popular browser sync tool is likely to live on.
Universal bookmark sync service Xmarks said it's closing up shop early next year, but there may be hope in the form of a paid service.
The service was popular in a technical niche, but the company couldn't find a way to make money from either the sync service or other possibilities.
The widely used bookmark synchronization plug-in is available in alpha form to those selected to test it. Xmarks hopes to open testing to more people soon.
