Except there is no toolbar support. Several hundred carefully organized bookmarks live inside my Google Toolbar, and without a way to import these, my Chrome experience was suffering.
So after a bit of fiddling, this appears to be the easiest way to import your favorites state from Google Toolbar into Google Chrome:
- In your Google toolbar favorites click "Manage All"
- When the webpage comes up, in the bottom center there is a link which says "Export to: My Computer" - click that link and save the file to your desktop.
- In IE 8.2, the favorites button is under the gold star on the upper left, click the gold star to reveal a submenu which reads "Add to Favorites..."- click the small black down arrow next to that text to reveal an additional submenu button called "Import and Export..." .
- Now select "Import from a File" and click Next.
- Select "Favorites" and Click Next
- Click browse and find the file you created on your desktop in step 2 and click next.
- Select the folder you want the favorites to reside and click import.
- In Chrome, under the wrench in the upper right, click "Import Bookmarks and Settings" - select all four items and click import.
- Click Ctrl+B to toggle the bookmarks bar in Chrome, the Google Toolbar links will be under the "Other Bookmarks" folder on the far right.
- Drag and drop folders from that folder to the Favorites Bar, customize as desired.
Hope this helps. Cheers.
