Browser backer

Back up your favorite browser's data with this simple program.

FavBackup provides an easy-to-use tool for backing up and restoring Web browser data. Its simple layout and excellent results make it a great way to save your important Web browser information.

The program's interface is impressively simple to operate, with commands broken up into intuitive tabs and onscreen instruction to guide users. We were able to back up all our bookmarks, browsing history, cookies, and more with a single click of a button. Equally impressive, FavBackup will work with a wide range of Web browsers, including Mozilla's Firefox, Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Google's Chrome, Apple's Safari, Flock, and even Opera. FavBackup stores this data as a DAT file. Restoring your settings is equally simple: You only have to press another button to access the DAT file and watch it reorganize your browser's current settings to the backed-up version. You can also customize the level of information FavBackup saves, focusing its attentions on the data that's truly important. There's also a "Full" backup and restore option, though we failed to find any significant difference to its regular backup. This program would be a great way to recover important browser settings and data from a virus or crash. It's a valuable part of a regular Internet security system.

FavBackup is a free program. It comes as a compressed file. By making the backup and restore process fast and simple, it earns a place in any Internet toolkit, and we highly recommend it.
