How to sync all your bookmarks on different browsers on Mac?

There are many browsers on the mac, such as Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and so on. I usually use Safari and chrome browsers, but sometimes I also use firefox. Many mac users like me, install and use more than two browsers on the mac. Each browser has a list of bookmarks that can sync bookmarks to different computers, phones, and their own accounts, but can't sync bookmarks to other browsers. If we need to collect and merge these bookmarks, is there a way to sync all the bookmarks on different browsers on the Mac?

1. Use One Bookmark to sync bookmarks from different browsers

We can download and install One Bookmark to sync all bookmarks on different browsers. It supports for Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Opera browser, and it can find and remove duplicate bookmarks and unreachable bookmarks.

1. Run One Bookmark and select Manage All Bookmarks

3. Click New Bookmark Folder menu item to create the folder, then click Move to Bookmark Folder menu item to classify and store bookmarks

4. Click Export bookmarks button to save the reorganized bookmarks. Then you can import the saved html file to any browser.

First we need to export the bookmark from each browser:

1. Export bookmark from Safari: Open Safari -> access menu File -> Export Safari BookMarks... , then save it.

2. Export bookmark from Chrome: Open Chrome -> access menu Bookmarks -> Bookmark Manager -> click "⋮". It's in the top right corner of the Chrome browser window, then choose Export bookmarks menu item.

Compress the bookmark file. (zip /Users/loginName/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.zip /Users/loginName/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist )
