One of the most annoying things about switching computers is having to set up browser preferences all over again.

This is when FavBackup comes in handy. FavBackup is a powerful tool that lets you back up and restore bookmarks and user preferences. It works with all major web browsers: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari and Flock, so it covers a significant portion of the browser market.

FavBackup is really easy to use. To begin with, it doesn't even require installation. Double click the EXE file and you'll be presented with a clearly-designed interface with two toolbars: one to pick the browser you want to work with, and another one to select the task to perform: backup, full backup, restore, or full restore. The difference between full and non-full is that the first one backs absolutely everything up, while the latter lets you select which exact elements you want to save: bookmarks, cookies, stored passwords, browsing history, etc.

FavBackup works just as it says on the tin. It's fast and efficient, and has been greatly improved since earlier versions. It doesn't feature any configuration options (except for the choice between three interface skins) and also lacks documentation – though you do have a link to an online Help page.

With FavBackup you can easily back up and restore bookmarks, history, cookies, user preferences, and other elements in all major web browsers.
