    Easiest is to use the Export Bookmarks... option from the File menu. Is that what you meant, or something else?

    Sure if it will let me save my bookmarks and use em again when I reinstall then yes.

    Yeah, it will. You can delete all the Apple default bookmarks after a reinstall, then use the Import menu item to bring all your old ones back in.

    Safari bookmarks can be found on disk @ ~/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist

    That's the native Safari bookmarks file. Just back up that folder. I usually back up the whole Library folder anyway, as many apps store data and preferences there.

    I use Apple's Backup application, super easy. Simply check off, Safari bookmarks and settings.
