Import Settings to Google Chrome

Friday, November 5th, 2010 by | Filed Under: Shortcuts & Keyboard Tricks, Uncategorized, Using The Internet

I know, I know; I’ve been writing a lot of Google Chrome tips recently, and up until a few weeks ago, I was against even installing it on my computer.

But now that I have, I see that it’s quite the browser. It’s fast, it’s simple…

…and importing all of my personal settings from either Firefox or Internet Explorer is a snap!

So, if you want to give Chrome a try, but can’t be bothered with setting it up to have the same bookmarks and settings as your usual browser, then this tip is just for you.

First, open Chrome and click on the little wrench icon in the upper right-hand corner – now click Options.


In the next window, make sure the Personal Stuff tab is selected and click the Import data from another browser button.


Now, using the drop-down box, select the browser you’d like to import from and place a checkmark next to the item(s) you’d like to import to Chrome. You can choose Favorites/Bookmarks, Search Engine preference, Saved Passwords and even your browsing history. Click Import when you’re done.


Now give Google Chrome a spin with all your settings imported and see how you like it. If you do, then awesome! If not, then that other browser will always be waiting for you.
