    I'm sick and tired of Safari tbh. It's so friggin' slow and a laggy. So I'm going to try using Chrome as my default browser. I've got a lot of stuff stored in Safara atm though – bookmarks, passwords etc. What's the best way to get them transfered to Chrome?

    When you install chrome, go to settings and click import from another browser. Then click "import bookmarks and settings" from safari.

    Not so much... that will import Safari bookmarks, but it won't import your passwords. You will need to reenter each one in Chrome and then they will be saved in Keychain.

    And make sure you download a 64 bit version of Chrome and not 32 bit. The 64 bit versions are still in beta but work real well.
