The popularity of Chrome has soared since its initial release, with many converts now claiming Google's browser as their primary option. For those who have made or are looking to make the switch, Chrome offers a relatively seamless process for importing history, bookmarks, saved passwords, and other personal information from your old browser.

While this feature does not support all browsers, it does allow you to import data from some of the more well-known competitors including Firefox and Internet Explorer, as well as from Google's own Toolbar add-on. This tutorial walks you through the import process on the Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.
