    I'd pay for the premium. Actually, I probably will pay for the premium. Syncing everything for my Android, my Ubuntu and Windows boots at home, and my work laptop (with profiles of course) is really kick ass imho.

    It's good to see they can still carry on. I'll most likely purchase the freemium thing next year, even though I only use 1 browser and PC most of the time. they made switching from my old XP machine to win7 a lot easier once my bookmarks were all carried over (and the same with subsequent formats of the win7 machine).

    Im sure alot of people will sign up to the pay version just because they like the service, even if they dont use the pay features.
    Personally i dont see how they can run up $2m a year in costs on such a service, bandwidth and storage would be incredibly low since its all just text files that can be compressed to a few KB for most users. Id be fasinated to see a breakdown a company like them how much it costs them to run a few servers and pay bandwidth.

    So is there a way to get the bookmark syncing without paying cash monies?


    The iOs sync is kinda cool

    They should make an app for iphone and android that costs the standard 79p and it would sync your passwords and bookmarks with your iphone, easy.
