    Hey all!
    I use Chrome as my browser of choice, and today it simply will not open for more than 30 seconds or so, before it completely freezes and I have to force quit. I tried restarting my computer, didn't work. I'm thinking my only option is to completely removed Chrome from my computer and then re-install. But first, I want to save all my many bookmarks...I have been searching online and can't find a way to bring my Chrome bookmarks into Safari (use it as my backup browser), anyone here know? Thanks, I appreciate the help!

    you should be able to export the chrome bookmarks to the desktop. Look in the bookmark manager.

    the exported bookmark file will be saved to your desktop. Once you re-install Chrome, go to Bookmarks and select import bookmarks>choose the bookmark file saved on your desktop.

    with Safari, just go into File and select import bookmarks.

    If you enable sync on Chrome it should just re-import all of them when you reinstall Chrome
