There are no charges for using xBrowserSync and you’ll never see a single ad. Ever.

xBrowserSync is a free and open-source alternative to browser syncing tools offered by companies like Google, Firefox, Opera and others. The project was born out of a concern for the over-reliance on services provided by big tech, who collect as much personal data as they can and have demonstrated that they do not respect their user’s privacy. Now, with the profileration of open-source tools and libraries it’s easier than ever to create open-source tools and services that allow users to take back control of their data!

xBrowserSync respects your privacy and gives you complete anonymity. No sign up is required and no personal data is ever collected. To start syncing simply download xBrowserSync for your desktop browser or mobile platform, enter an encryption password and click Create New Sync! You’ll receive an anonymous sync ID which identifies your data and can be used to access your data on other browsers and devices.

xBrowserSync does not only sync but also enhances your productivity by enriching your native browser bookmarks with the addition of descriptions and tags, and an intuitive search interface enables you to find, modify and share bookmarks quickly and easily. xBrowserSync even adds descriptions and tags to new bookmarks for you automatically. And don’t ever worry about losing your data thanks to the included back up and restore functionality.

The xBrowserSync desktop browser web extension syncs your browser data between desktop browsers. It works with the browser’s native bookmarking features so you can keep using the native tools whilst always staying in sync. If you like to organise your bookmarks into folders don’t worry, xBrowserSync respects your bookmark hierarchy and syncs it across your browsers.

Get the xBrowserSync mobile app and access your synced data on your Android or iOS mobile device. Search through your synced bookmarks just as you would using the web extension, except adding new bookmarks is as easy as sharing from your favourite apps (browsers, YouTube, Spotify and many other apps that share URLs).

Choose from a growing list of public xBrowserSync cloud services to sync to, or run your very own xBrowserSync service for syncing in complete privacy. We run and maintain the official xBrowserSync cloud service, but anyone with a bit of computer savvy can run their own service. Simply clone or download the API source code from our GitHub repo and follow the instructions in the README to get up and running.

The number of xBrowserSync users are growing every day and the code base is active and being constantly improved. The current roadmap is to support all major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Edge), mobile platforms (iOS and Android) and sync open tabs and history as well as bookmarks. If you would like to contribute to the development of xBrowserSync to help deliver functionality sooner, read more on how you can get involved.

Sync to any of these xBrowserSync cloud services by setting the service URL on the Settings panel within xBrowserSync.

Want to contribute? Get involved!

xBrowserSync is only possible because like-minded individuals contribute their time and talent to make it work. If you use xBrowserSync and want to contribute, you can:

Code

If you know how to dev JavaScript web apps or Node.js Express web services, check out the current issues list for the web extension/mobile app or API and submit a pull request for a fix or enhancement. If you’re planning on implementing a new feature then please do let us know and we’ll co-ordinate with you to help get it done.

Translate

The lives of software developers would be far easier if everyone just spoke English, but the world would indeed be the poorer for it. If you are able and willing to help translate xBrowserSync to another language, get in touch.

Donate

Though xBrowserSync is free to use and our devs are volunteers, we still have to pay our cloud server provider! You can ensure the lights stay on by becoming a patron or donating some BTC.

Suggest

Found a bug? Want to request a new feature? Head on over to GitHub and submit an issue for either the web extension/mobile app or the API.

Host

The number of xBrowserSync users are growing every day and those users require xBrowserSync cloud services to sync their data to. In order for xBrowserSync to remain free, we need volunteers who are willing to host a public xBrowserSync cloud service on their own server for users to sync to. If you are interested in hosting a service, clone or download the xBrowserSync API source code from our GitHub repo and follow the instructions in the README. Once your service is up and running, let us know the URL so it can be added to the list of public xBrowserSync services.
