As Xmarks is going to die in about 90 days, I was wondering what is a good tool to take its place. (I'm curently using Chrome)

I've been looking and can't find a cross-platform syncronization tool that works the same way Xmarks does.
This news is horrible! I hope it can be revived somehow! It's sad to see such a good thing die, with no power to help it.

Hey there is still a little bit of hope... Check out http://blog.xmarks.com/?p=1945.
I have been using Xmarks for a year now and there isn't anything out there that syncs bookmarks on multiple browsers (FireFox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, IE, Safari) and computers (Windows; Mac OS X; Linux) and am upset about them shutting down the service in January 2011.
I LOVE the little thumbnails on my Google searches and the category ranking. As I find it really futile to search on Google cause there is just tooooo much dang results. Itâ€™s like finding a needle in a haystack. I did a search on â€œwebdesignâ€ and 3 of the first 10 results are sites that I regularly use. This makes everything more relevant for me. The whole out-of-sight-out of mind thing which is so great about the program.
I sent Todd Agulnick the Co-Founder and CTO of Xmarks, Inc. a message on Facebook and he personally responded, so they are really looking at our feedback.
So please read the announcement blog post http://blog.xmarks.com/?p=1886
Then the latest blog post, http://blog.xmarks.com/?p=1945 and take the pledge on http://www.pledgebank.com/XmarksPremium if you would genuinely pay $10 / year for Xmarks.
Lastly share this information with your friends on Geeks, Facebook and Twitter.
