Anders, how could I switch my beloved bookmarks from FF to google chrome?

Best,
Laura

Don't know whether someone has mentioned this but...  I use Google toolbar for the 'anywhere bookmarks'.  I use a good number of PCs and laptops with this on all of them.  Google stores the bookmarks so they are available and synchronised on all the machines.  There are a lot of other features too - but you can turn them off ;-)

I always use firefox+adblock plus+no script as my standard browser. The customisation of firefox and the fact that it's open source and relatively secure are what attracts me to it.

I'm currently using mostly XP Pro but I'm a big user of Ubuntu (Jaunty) and I have a Vista install around too...

I'm using Vista and FF. I'd like to switch to Ubuntu, but I don't think my family would appreciate that, having to learn a new system.

Thanks, I'm trying Ubuntu  :)

and here I was thinking mac os was the most nonfree of any operating system...
Deaf, he hears his own nature.
Blind, he sees his Original Mind.
The empty, clear moon
In the water rises
Where heart and mind are forgotten.

I suppose it depends upon our definitions. I've used all 3 major OS platforms extensively, and "free" has never been what comes to mind when I'm using a Mac. Different strokes for different folks... :)

Ubuntu and Chrome here!

I love Ubuntu, I've used it for years.  Chrome I started using in the past six months - before that, it was Firefox.

Woot! There's at least two of us, so I will now officially form the International Ubuntu/Chrome Buddhists Union.
We may be a small club.  :lmfao:

You can boot, use and save Puppy data from CD/DVD
and run software such as YAP
