Importing Mozilla Firefox bookmarks into Google Chrome

Browsers constantly evolve and receive updates, and you reach a point when you may have to choose another default one for the sake of efficiency.

The problem is that when you use a browser for too long, all your personal settings remain there. This means that when you migrate to a new browser, you need to start setting it up from scratch.

Such would be the case for when you decide to switch from Mozilla Firefox to Google Chrome. While both Internet browsers are some of the best, you may prefer Google Chrome for one reason or another.

Quick tip: Change your browser to Opera

Are you going to perform all the steps from the guide below to import your bookmarks or are you going to install a browser that can do that in less than 10 seconds?

We’re talking about Opera, a browser that imports your bookmarks during the installation process. You just need to select the old browser from a list and click on the Import button.

If you skipped this step, the bookmark importing process is still extremely easy:

  1. Open Opera and press Alt+P.
  2. Click on the Import Bookmarks and Settings button.
  3. Chose the old browser from the drop-down list and click Import.
