Don’t take me wrong, Google Chrome is one of the best browsers right now, but the new Chromium build of Microsoft Edge and Firefox Quantum are pretty tempting. If you are a long time user of Chrome, this is a good time to test out the new browsers as the browser war has never been this close before. The good thing is that modern browsers have great cross-browser compatibility so you can easily export bookmarks and settings across browsers without a hitch. This does make it easier to switch browsers. In this article, I have included all the information you need to export Chrome bookmarks to other popular browsers. So without further ado, let’s get started.
