Default Syncing Mozilla Browsers

I have a few computers, where I run both Firefox and Seamonkey browsers. I try to keep the bookmarks synchronized, but doing that manually is tedious. I tried the Sync function (located under Tools) to sync all browsers. Sync save the encrypted data on a Mozilla server and you can configure both Firefox and Seamonkey browsers to use it. I now have all Mozilla browsers, on my various computers, synced. When you set up Sync, you can select what data (bookmarks, passwords, etc.) gets synced. The data is encrypted when stored on the server.

Yeah I should have clarified I was talking about xmarks.

Is it the Firefox Home app on the android like on the iPhone?
