Export Chrome bookmarks

If you have been using Chrome for any decent amount of time you may have found yourself looking to save your current updated bookmarks in Chrome to the other browsers on your computer. Upon searching you will soon find that this is a missing feature from the browser. Lucky for you and me however, a coder by the name of Mark Clouden has developed a nice (and might I say slick looking) stand alone program that will not only export your bookmarks from Chrome but also delete your download history too (otherwise you would have to delete each entry one by one).

1) First download and install .NET 2.0 here.

2) Download Mark’s program here.

3) Make sure Chrome isn’t running (view this post from another browser)

4) Extract file from the zip to a folder on the desktop and click on the ChromeDump.exe file

5) Select the icon of your selected task (Clear Download History or Export Bookmarks)

If you love the app I would suggest to drop Mark a nice comment on his blog here:

    This has nothing to do with your post, but I’ve been trying and trying to get this theme on my tumblr page and have yet to figure it out. It’s driving me nuts! 🙂 I was wondering if you’d be willing to help me out with this. It’d be GREATLY appreciated!

    Thank You In Advance!

    🙂 cute , but after after installing your application for about 6 times, i started taring my hairs out (figurately speaking) because it just didn’t work. Then, after i had given up all hope, i accidentally looked in the ChromeDump.exe.config file and what do you know (the expression:) the description said .NET Framework. And to conclude, this was all a big introduction(kind of mean, but i was upset) just to tell you that you have to install .NET Framework 2.0 (that’s what i used) to actually use the application. Thank you:)

    Good point Sergiu! Forgot to mention that as it’s not installed by default, will put that in the instructions. Thanks for the input!

    Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
