Xmarks Pledge Campaign

Xmarks Pledge Campaign

Xmarks may live? For those of you who were sad to see Xmarks close up shop, there might be one last thing you can do to try to save it.  Xmarks has launched a pledge campaign to stay alive.  So, what must you do?  If you want to show your support, all they are asking is for you to pledge $10 to $20.  This is not an actual donation, but instead is a vote of confidence saying that, "Yeah, I’d pay for Xmarks".

If 100,000 people express interest in seeing Xmarks stay alive, then Xmarks might get a second chance.  It is a pretty large goal to meet – however I do have to wish Xmarks the best of luck in chasing this new business model, and I do hope they are successful.

Give Back to Firefox Add-on Developers

Haven’t you always wanted to give back to those Firefox add-on developers that have made your life easier?  Well, even if the thought hadn’t crossed your mind – you do have the ability to do so thanks to the new contributions feature on the Firefox Add-ons site.

How it works is a small widget gets shown on the specific add-on’s page and says something like, “The developer of this add-on asks that you help support its continued development by making a small contribution” then you can donate the suggested price or a different amount. 

Nothing wrong with giving back a little to those out there who have made your browsing experience even better.
