Problem: You’ve got a number of bookmarks neatly organized in various folders in your browser. Now you want to share some of them with a friend. How do you get that done in the easiest and quickest possible way?
Turns out that sharing a bookmarks folder isn’t that straight-forward. Of course you can copy-paste and email individual links but that could be incredibly time consuming. Actually, I remember Lifehacker talking about this Firefox trick where you can simply copy and paste all the links in a bookmarks folder by copying the folder itself. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to work in other browsers.
We are going to use Xmarks to get the job done here. We’ve previously talked about how to use this amazing bookmarks sync tool and vented our frustration on the probability of it shutting down (thanks to the folks at Lastpass for saving them). Xmarks remains as amazing as it was, and I still believe that it’s by far the best cross browser bookmarks sync solution out there. So, if you haven’t started using it yet, follow our tutorial and get it working.
Now, lets see how to share bookmarks folders in your browser using Xmarks.
Step 1. Go to my.xmarks.com and click on the folder you want to share. If your folder is on the bookmarks toolbar, you’ll first need to expand the Bookmarks Toolbar folder in Xmarks in order to find the folder you are looking for.
