    Xmarks will stay alive. Close to being acquired.

    Xmarks, the bookmarks cross-browser sync service that just weeks ago came very close to being shut down has officially announced the service is “alive and kicking” and will soon be acquired.

    In a blog post, co-founder James Joaquin revealed that the company is in final stages of completing a sale to a new owner who will provide both a free and premium offering for the service.

    Just one month ago the company requested pledges to pay an annual fee for the service, at that point the company received over 30,000 pledges, probably a great deal more today.

    Joaquin ask that users sit tight, and – in kind – put their money where their mouth is once their premium offering is released.
