Just got an update in my RSS feeds about a pledge for Xmarks to stay alive. I previously wrote about Xmarks dying due to finances among other things. The creators are willing to give it a second chance if the pledge succeeds. The idea of the pledge is to have a “Xmarks Premium” service where the user would pay a fee to use the service. Using the money gathered from the service, Xmarks would be able to continue to live. The details of the pledge are shown below:
“I will commit to $10 - $20 per year for Xmarks Sync but only if 100,000 other people will do the same.”— Xmarks Founders, Mitch, Todd, Dave, Penny, and James
