Import bookmarks and history from other browsers in Safari on Mac
If Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox is your default browser, the first time you open Safari it automatically imports your bookmarks and history. You can decide to keep the imported items now, or you can try out Safari and decide later. If you don’t keep the imported items, you can have Safari re-import them later.
Automatically import bookmarks and history from Firefox and Chrome
When you use Safari after using Firefox or Chrome, a notice at the bottom of the Favorites or Top Sites page asks you if you want to keep imported bookmarks and history. Do one of the following:
Keep your imported items: Click Keep.
Remove your imported items: Click Don’t Keep.
Decide later: Return to the Favorites or Top Sites page and import the items at another time. To see the Favorites or Top Sites page, choose Bookmarks > Show Favorites or Show Top Sites (the menu item changes based on what you’ve chosen from the “New windows open with” pop-up menu in Safari General preferences. See Change General preferences.
Manually import bookmarks and history from Firefox or Chrome
In the Safari app on your Mac, choose File > Import From > Google Chrome or File > Import From > Firefox.
Select the items you want to import.
You can do this any time after you start using Safari, even if you imported items already.
Import a bookmarks file
In the Safari app on your Mac, choose File > Import From > Bookmarks HTML File.
Select the file you want to import.
After you import bookmarks, they appear at the bottom of the sidebar in a new folder whose name begins with “Imported” and ends with the date.
You can import bookmarks that were exported in HTML format from Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, OmniWeb, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome.
In the Safari app on your Mac, choose File > Export Bookmarks. The exported file is called “Safari Bookmarks.html.”
