Another vote for Foxmarks. I use it to sync my bookmarks on two Macs and a Windows desktop and it works flawlessly.

When you tell FF to "Bookmark this page," it saves that info on its server. You ask it to do that! If you want to sync your bookmarks between computers, FF just uses what you have put on their server from each of your computers and it makes them all the same, but only when you agree. It doesn't "go into" your computer, so privacy should not be a problem if you use Foxmarks.
