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 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.

Usually, you don’t even have to do much, as you will be prompted to import all your stuff to a newly installed browser.

That being said, if you accidentally close the prompt, or didn’t get one in the first place, you can use the browser’s settings to accomplish this goal.

All the browsers that can sync and import from each other, such as Opera, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and others, have an Import bookmarks and settings option that is pretty easy to locate.
