I already use X-Marks, how is Sync different/better?
I don't know how to make the query any clearer...

Sync does synchronization of far more types of data that Xmarks does. Plus Sync is built in to the upcoming Firefox 4.0 version, no need to install an extension.Read this answer in context 5
TWO BIG difference very very important:
1) Xmarks has his site where you can go from other browser too (when you are away and on other pc you can install NOTHING), you can see all own bookmarks in the xmarks site after login! Very very nice! And now??
2) Changing any bookmarks in firefox, xmarks notices it and, when you close firefox, it syncs automatically. Very pretty!Go to answer 12
Xmarks is superior to Firefox Sync as far as Bookmarks go, especially since it will sync Bookmarks and Favorites between Firefox, IE, and Safari - something no other web service that I have seen will do. Plus being able to view your bookmarks on-line from any browser is a nice feature, too.
But the fact is that users are looking for other services due to the impending shut down of Xmarks services within 90 days or so.Go to answer 10

I don't agree with this statement. It is for backup as much as synchronization.
sorry I mean this link http://www.akonter.com/story/how-to-sync-bookmarks-across-different-browsers-using-xmarks/
Xmarks is not shutting down. The owner wanted to shutdown the project guess because of financial issues so, somebody bought it and luckily its still working :)
