One of the most important feature in a web browser is bookmarks. There are more than 182 million websites on the Internet last year and it’s growing every year. Memorizing every single website that you’ve been to is nearly impossible. So the bookmark feature in web browser provides an easy way for us to record or save the link so we can get back to it at another time.
There are so many web browsers available today such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Chromium, Flock, Konquerer, Opera, Safari, SeaMonkey, XBEL and each browser has its own method of saving bookmarks. One would normally end up using more than one browser. As for me, I use Firefox for my daily web surfing, Internet Explorer for my online banking and Google Chrome for testing purposes when something doesn’t work as normal in Firefox and IE. Problem with using multiple web browsers is the annoyance of importing bookmarks from other browsers.
All my bookmarks are saved in Firefox and now I wanted to transfer them to Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. I found a very useful free bookmark convertor that can transfer bookmarks and favorites between web browsers.
Transmute is the ultimate bookmark converter. This amazing, cross-platform utility will convert, synchronize, sort, organize and remove duplicates from your bookmarks and more.
Transmute is really easy to use. If you want to transfer from Firefox to Chrome, just select Firefox as Source and Chrome as Target. If you want to backup the bookmarks from a browser, just check the “Backup collection” checkbox. You can also expand the Options to configure if Transmute should transfer the bookmarks to a new folder or overwrite your current favorites on the target browser.
There are 2 versions for Transmute which is the free and PRO version. The free version of Transmute offers converting and transferring bookmarks from all major web browsers, easy to use interface, automatic, portable and cross platform (Windows, Linux, Mac OSX) usage. The PRO version offers all the features that is in the free version plus bookmark web services, profiles, advanced control, duplicate removal, customizable sorting and command line support. For a normal computer user that just wants to transfer bookmark from one web browser to another, the free version will do.
What I like about Transmute is it’s free, easy to use and portable. You would need to have Microsoft .NET Framework install in order to run.
