Weave is one of the best application to Sync Bookmarks, password, form, history, tabs across multiple computers. Few months back, while searching for Bookmark sync for multiple computers I found Xmarks and started using it. Xmarks is good enough for bookmark & password backup. But when it comes to sync bookmark amongst computer there is intervention required. Whereas Mozilla Weave it does all automatically.
As a downside I am unable to make Firefox forget password for Weave (yes, there is option available in security. but I prefer entering password manually). I use weave & xmarks for syncing my office & home computer bookmarks. Many times I share my office computer with office colleagues, this is one of the reason I avoid saving password in Weave. Xmark is able to sync while closing browser, which is not the option with Weave. By default it synchronizes with server every 300 seconds. Xmark keeps multiple copies of sync data for accidental deletion / recovery.
I recommend to use both application together, weave can take care of seamless sync & Xmarks can be used to keep multiple backup of bookmark, passwords.
