Name of the plugin[edit]

I understand the desire to have a separate article for the company and for the plugin, but do they have different names? While Wikipedia has an article for Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer, I do not see that phrase anywhere on the Foxmarks website. What justification is there for calling it that, especially with capital letters? If there is no formal justification, I say the other article should be merged back into this one. — Epastore (talk) 03:02, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Update Article[edit]

Foxmarks has been formally released. If I wasn't so lazy i would change it myself, but I have a real life today. Just bringing attention to anyone who cares... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Black2sday (talkcontribs) 15:29, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Foxmarks is becoming Xmarks[edit] We need something written on that, a new name redirect etc. Xbrasil (talk) 12:06, 25 March 2009 (UTC) Black2sday (talk) 11:30, 26 March, 2009 (EST)

Xmarks & Performance Issues[edit]

How do we put in the article that Xmarks has major & has always had major performance issues? Or should I say non-performance issues? Mitch Kapor made out by selling a product that was a great idea with horrendous performance. But how do we include that as a significant fundamental issue for this software product?

Xmarks blocked in India[edit]

  • Starting in May 2012, the domain was blocked in India by court order.[1][2]

I was looking for a more recent update on this story. Having read the court order that supposedly led led to this block, it is far from clear (and certainly nothing explicit) that would explain why Xmarks was targeted. There seems to be no recent article on this story, so it is not clear if Xmarks continues to be blocked and (regardless) whether there is any further clarification on why it was blocked in the first place. Since I am not in India, I cannot check if the domain is currently blocked. Can anyone else shed light on this episode?
