Have you switched to Google Chrome from Firefox? If so, you probably want to transfer all your valuable bookmarks and possibly your well-organized Bookmarks toolbar to Chrome.

The process of transferring bookmarks between browsers is fairly straight-forward. You can pretty much follow the steps below for transferring bookmarks between any two browsers.

    You can see the bookmarks on the right hand side when you click on Imported. The Bookmarks toolbar from Firefox is also imported under the Imported folder.

    If you want these bookmarks on the Chrome Bookmarks toolbar directly, just drag and drop the folder to the Bookmarks Bar item in the list on the left.

    Your bookmarks from the Firefox Bookmarks toolbar are now available on the Chrome Bookmarks bar.
