Mozilla’s Firefox and Google’s Chrome browser are two of the most popular in the world. We can split hairs about the differences, but the truth is it’s mostly down to preference at this point. Firefox offers a great solution for security-focused users, while Chrome’s extension library is unmatched.

Switching browsers, however, often involves losing bookmarks that may have been collected over years of browsing. Or, you could always move them over manually. Luckily, there’s a third option, one that allows you to move your bookmarks and settings from Firefox and into Chrome.

This is an import tool found within the Firefox browser, so there’s no need to mess with third-party applications to move everything over.
