It used to be that people had one browser--usually Internet Explorer--that they used for years on end. But the browser race is on now, with Firefox, Chrome, and a host of others competing for a bigger piece of the browser market. Curious about a new browser, but not sure how to handle your bookmarks? Darq Software Transmute is a quick and easy way for users to transfer bookmarks from one browser to another. There's no reason to waste time doing it manually when this program makes the task so simple.
The program's interface is sleek and simple. Users simply select the browsers that they're transferring the bookmarks to and from, click start, and the program does the rest. There are 13 browsers to choose from, ensuring that even somewhat obscure browsers are supported. Users can specify the directories to be used if needed, although in many cases the program can locate them automatically. We transferred our bookmarks from Firefox to Internet Explorer with no trouble; the program worked quickly and the results were accurate. The program even deletes duplicates if needed to keep everything tidy. The program has no Help file per se, but a list of frequently asked questions is available on the publisher's Web site.
Darq Software Transmute is free. It comes as a ZIP file and installs desktop icons without asking, but it uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program for all users seeking a simple way to transfer their bookmarks from one browser to another.
Transmute is a bookmark converter that can import and export bookmarks, or favorites, between the latest web browser bookmark formats such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Opera, Apple Safari, Konqueror, Chromium, Flock, SeaMonkey and XBEL.
