Chrome for Mac and XMarks — not quite there

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

I’ve been trying out Chrome for a while now and there are only two things holding me back, both of which are extensions to Firefox:

  1. Xmarks – saving my bookmarks on a server so they’re the same everywhere
  2. Download Helper – save those YouTube videos in high-quality mp4

The first is on its way. I’ve been using the “Windows” version of the Xmarks Chrome plugin, and it faithfully downloaded all my bookmarks from the server, however, it seems unable to update with any new bookmarks.
Also, Chrome seems to hand indefinitely if it is left enabled.
So, no Xmarks quite yet.

I can’t find *anything* for Chrome that replaces Download Helper for Firefox. Oh well. I’ll just boot up Firefox when it’s really needed.

Despite these two rather major shortcomings, I am using Chrome as my main browser day-to-day.
Its speed and beauty are hard to ignore.
