moderated Re: Favorites redux


Can you export them from IE to another browser?

Which browser would be easiest to export them to? The new Edge,

Google, Firefox?

The very idea of the Favorites Folder, as once implemented, has been jettisoned by everyone, including Microsoft, with any contemporary browser.  The new Chromium-based Edge does what all other browsers do - maintain Favorites/Bookmarks internally to the browser, though one can export and import them.

CTRL+D is pretty much the universal, "Bookmark this page," command and works in Firefox as well as all Chromium-based browsers.  In any Chromium based browser CTRL+Shift+O opens the Bookmarks/Favorites Manager, which is, I find, the easiest way to locate and/or organize one's bookmarks to one's own satisfaction.  Under Firefox the CTRL+Shift+B command opens the bookmarks manager.
