Are you a die-hard Safari user who is looking for an easy way to transfer your bookmarks to a new device? If so, you’ve come to the right place! In this blog post, we’ll show you how to easily import bookmarks from Safari into other browsers and computers, as well as how to protect your bookmarks with backups.

If you’re dealing with an older version of Safari, the process of exporting and importing will be slightly different. To export your bookmarks on an older version of Safari, open the program and click File > Export Bookmarks. This will create an HTML file that can be saved on an external drive and imported onto a new device.

For newer versions of Safari, iCloud integration allows you to store your information in the cloud rather than locally on your computer. This includes your bookmarks, Reading List, Tab Groups, and open browser tabs – all accessible from any device set up with iCloud and Safari.

If you’re transferring bookmarks from Chrome or another browser into Safari, open Chrome on the desired device and click More > Bookmark Manager > More > Import Bookmarks. From there, select the program that contains the bookmarks you want to transfer over and click Import. That’s it!

To really ensure your bookmarked pages are preserved for all eternity (or at least until technology changes again), consider backing them up regularly. You can find instructions for backing up Chrome bookmarks here: [link].

We hope this blog post has given you some insight into how easy it can be to transfer your Safari bookmarks between devices! Thanks for reading!
