Most internet users find difficulty in using bookmarks while switching from one browser to another browser. Switching from one browser to another browser doesn’t automatically export and import bookmarks too from one browser to another.

Luckily Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome, all provide options to import and export bookmarks. So anyone can transfer all their bookmarks from one browser to another by performing a few simple steps.

Method 1. Export Bookmarks from Firefox and Import it into Google Chrome

We can easily export bookmarks from Firefox to Google Chrome by performing the following easy steps:

Go To Bookmark > Organize Bookmarks option or simply click Ctrl+Shift+B


Library window will open. Go to Import and Backup > Export HTML.


You can export your bookmarks in HTML files anywhere on your PC.


Now Go to Google Chrome and click on tool button.


Click on Bookmark manager.

Bookmark Manager

Go to Tools > Import Bookmarks option.

Method 2: Export Bookmarks from Internet Explorer and Import it into Google Chrome

Exporting bookmarks from Internet explorer is similar to exporting Firefox bookmarks.

Now here you want to explore all the Internet explorer bookmarks. So click on Export Favorites option. Click Next button.


Click Next button.

Now you need to import this HTML file into Google Chrome browser. Repeat the above mentioned steps while importing Firefox bookmarks and transferring it to Google Chrome browser.
