Google Chrome is a popular browser that does not come pre-installed with Windows. This means that over time, users can use Internet Explorer (which is a part of Windows) for their bookmarking needs but later want to migrate them to Chrome.
The same is true with other browsers like Firefox. Fortunately, Chrome makes it really easy to copy these privacy, passwords, and other details directly to Google Chrome in a matter of seconds.
