New to Google Chrome? Make sure to bring your favorite sites with you!

If you’ve been a power user of the Internet as long as I have, there’s a good chance you have your favorite sites saved to your bookmarks or favorites bar. And if you’re new to Google Chrome, you can easily move all your bookmarks over.

Here’s how to move your bookmarks to Google Chrome!

The bookmarks should be imported, and you’ll see them in the bookmarks bar below the address bar.
