Bookmarks & Favourites

  Input Overload 11:34 18 Sep 2009

I have IE8 Opera 10.xx and the recent final of Chrome as I haven't decided which I intent to use as default. My question is can you import Opera bookmarks into IE or even Chrome?

I have used Opera almost exclusively for a while & there are are fair number of sites I want on IE8 & Chrome.

You can import bookmarks from Opera and Firefox into IE8. Click on Favorites then Add to Favorites and then import and export then import from another browser and opera should show up. Don't know about Chrome.

Woolwell, thanks for that, I ended up used system similar to what you suggested. I emptied all favorites in IE from the favorites folder & deleted Chrome Bookmarks.

I them exported Opera bookmarks (I didn't know you could do this) to my desk as HTML. I then imported these into IE as a HTML file.

I then imported favorites from IE into Chrome. It was a bit convoluted but all 3 browsers now have the same bookmarks as I have over 1500 collected over the years.

I bought a bookmark manager & synchronizer some time ago I will see if it works with Vista.
