How to Import Google Chrome Bookmarks into Google Bookmarks

This is a mess since Google Chrome doesn’t have any utility to manage its bookmarks to online Google Bookmarks. It is also an irony since both of them are Google’s. Here is the only way to have your Chrome bookmarks into Google Bookmark.

After the bookmark page appeared, click Organize and then choose Import bookmark. It will save all your bookmarks to an HTML file. Note: In some case you’ll need to rename the file to have an .html extension.

If you still using Firefox 3, you should upgrade it to Firefox 4. But, it is okay if you still want to use Firefox 3.

Click Import and Backup and then click Import HTML. Choose next, select your HTML bookmark file, and then open. It will quickly get your bookmarks imported into Firefox.

    Google Toolbar wasn’t available for me for Firefox 10.02 on OSX 10.6, but the GMarks plugin did the job.
