    I would like to transfer all of my Favorites on my IE to Bookmarks on my mac. Is there an easy way to do this?

    I did this a while ago

    but as I recall, all you need to do is export the IE bookmarks from the Files menu to an HTML document then import it into Safari. It's a rather straightforward process and it didn't take me very long to do.

    Exporting bookmarks

    From IE, export Favorites into a Bookmark.htm file (see here) and save it to a USB drive (preferred) or other storage device.

    Next put that into the Mac USB port, open Safari and under File|Import Bookmarks, find the USB drive and bring in the file named Bookmark.htm into Safari.

    Cheers!
