How to Export Google Chrome Bookmarks to Explorer

Some Internet surfers may not know that bookmarks are nothing more than regular HTML links. Browsers store these links using different names. Google Chrome, for instance, calls them “Bookmarks.” Internet Explorer refers to them as “Favorites.” Regardless of their names, you can transfer bookmarks between browsers by saving them as an HTML file and loading that file into another browser. To view your Chrome bookmarks in IE, use Chrome’s “Export” feature to create this HTML file and Internet Explorer’s “Import” feature to load it into IE.

Chrome and IE simplify your job of sychronizing their bookmarks.
