With a veritable rainbow of legitimate options now available, a surprisingly small percentage of Web surfers make the switch to a new everyday browser, instead choosing to remain loyal to their existing application. All may not be as it seems, however, as loyalty is not always the driving force behind this decision. After conducting an informal survey of readers, friends, and colleagues on the matter, I've learned that many of them have hesitated to jump ship simply because they are afraid to lose their favorite sites, browsing history, and other settings.
Fear not, folks, as most modern browsers allow you to import and export these items in just a few minutes of your time. Each browser facilitates this process differently, so let our step-by-step tutorials guide you along.
