Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

One of the best Firefox add-ons - Foxmarks - changes it's name to Xmarks and the change is not just linguistic, but means also a new face for the service: Xmarks wants to do more than just synchronize your browser's bookmarks and passwords. The new Xmarks also uses user generated data to create a suggestion service, something similar to StumbleUpon. When browsing, Xmarks will be able to suggest top 5 similar sites as well as display information for the site you're currently on, all in just one click of a button.

Also, Xmarks now integrates Google search, showing an information icon next to the search results and when you move your mouse over it, it displays some basic informations about that website.

If you do not like the new Xmarks options, they can be turned off.
