    So Firefox Sync is basically Xmarks but built into the browser?

    Essentially, yes.

    It's not really a new feature, though, even for Firefox. Like it says, Weave has been around since Firefox 3.5ish, and Sync has been built in to all of the betas of Firefox 4. The change is just that its on by default now, and actually asks you on first boot to set up an account.

    Chrome has also had built in Sync for some time.

    It was called Weave, not Wave.

    And unlike Xmarks, it goes beyond bookmarks and passwords. It allows you to sync tabs, history etc, so you can access open(ed) tabs on another computer, which i find useful at times.
