Bookmark is a standard feature of every modern web browser. This feature allows you to save interesting web pages you potentially find during browsing. If you frequently adding new bookmarks then you will have plenty of bookmarks in your browsers. To allow you manage your bookmarks all web browsers also feature a bookmark manager. Google Chrome is no exception.
Google Chrome and Firefox are among the current most popular web browsers. The two often considered as the closest contenders. Generally, Google Chrome and Firefox have similar features. However, those who love freedom tend to prefer using Firefox rather than Chrome since they have a full control of it. It is because Firefox is an open source software. Google Chrome, on the other hand, is a proprietary software although it is released as a free software.
For that reason you probably want to migrate from Chrome to Firefox. Or, you have your own reason?
Whatever your reason. The first thing you need to do if you want to switch from Chrome to Firefox is importing all of the bookmarks you have on Chrome. Fortunately, Chrome allows you to export the bookmarks you have on it to be imported to other browsers (and also online bookmark services). Here is how to export bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox.
On Google Chrome
- Go to bookmark manager by clicking the Bookmarks menu and select Bookmark manager. Or simply press the Ctrl+Shift+O button.
- Click the Organize menu and select Export bookmarks to HTML file. Don’t forget to save this file.
- Go to the bookmark manager by clicking the Bookmarks menu and select Show All Bookmarks. Or simply press the Ctrl+Shift+O button.
- Click the Import and Backup menu and select Import Bookmarks from HTML. Select the HTML file of the bookmarks you have exported from Chrome.
Done. By now, you can access all of the bookmarks you created in Chrome and continuously using Firefox if you want to make it your main browser.
