Con No more updated
The application has not received updates for over a year. It is plausible to think that its development has been abandoned, yet no mention was made of it on the site and the possibility of its free use was not offered at least until its natural obsolescence.
At a total cost of $36 per year ($3/month * 12 months) this option is more expensive than other options with more features.
Con Android app unstable
This application is just out of Beta, but still crashes a few times a day on Android (e.g. on Nexus 6 with Android 7).
Con Android or Google Chrome only
Add-ons are not available for Firefox, Safari or other common browsers.
Con No iOS support
It doesn't support anymore iOS.
Con Does not sync passwords
If youre afraid due to the lack of password syncing with xbrowser, this problem is easily fixable by using myki password manager. It supports all major operating systems with secure features that work alongside xbrowsersync perfectly. myki is available as a chrome extension, and for android, iphone, mac, windows, and more!
Con Doesn't support new Firefox for Android
Maybe not the developer's fault but since using Firefox as main browser, the cross platform niche can't be satisfied. Will be looking to jump ship once the extension is added to the very limited pool Firefox Android currently has.
