    Does anyone now where i can find IEs favorites folder in OSX 10.2.1.

    I cant find it but i know that it has *.url files. Finder cant find them either.

    I think microsoft has buried them deep in the OS to stop people editing them but i want to bring my old ones over from my PC.

    Unless you're living in the U.S.A. and then, it's the odd spelling: favorites. :D
