import Firefox Bookmarks to 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.
