Firefox, Chrome & Co .: How the competitors cooperate

Is ince Chrome on the market, the Google browser Lynx from the equivalent of Mozilla market share. And despite the ongoing battle for users, both programs do what different companies do not often do: they harmonize with each other despite competition and call the competitors in their own menu points. The whole is expandable - but nevertheless good, but it shows that the user is the focus. This report is based on findings in Windows 10, tested in Firefox 52, Chrome 56 and Internet Explorer 11.

Import Wizard in Firefox facilitates change
After launching, Firefox displays a wizard, which retrieves the data from other browsers installed. There is no choice as to the imported information, only a choice of the browser by control point. Whoever has clicked on the window will call the assistant again. To do this, click the Alt button, click Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Import data from another browser . For example, you'll see Microsoft Edge at Windows 10, as well as Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Chromium. Only installed, these programs appear as entries. If the pre-selected browser does not fit, Place the radio button in front of another. In the next step, you use the checkbox to define what you want to adopt. The offer differs depending on the browser, which should be closed for data transfer according to the dialogue recommendation by the way. With Chrome, for example, Firefox offers the import of cookies, browser history, and saved passwords. Copied bookmarks end up in Google Chrome's new bookmarks folder . There is an additional click to open it and load the pages. With Chrome, for example, Firefox offers the import of cookies, browser history and stored passwords.

Chrome: Import settings
If you go to the Google Chrome settings, either by clicking on the icon in the top right corner and clicking on the settings button or by typing the address bar chrome: // settings , import bookmarks and settings . This dialog can be accessed directly via the addressable input of chrome: // settings / importData . Another option is the bookmark bar; If necessary, use Ctrl-Shift-B to select it and select Import bookmarks now (only available if no bookmarks exist). The browser allows you to read bookmarks and settings, for example from Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox. Similar to the latter program, the import points vary, Depending on the browser selected by the drop-down menu. In Firefox, they include history, bookmarks, saved passwords, search engines, and AutoFill form data. The bookmarks appear in the new folder imported from Firefox. Important for the working import is that Firefox is closed. If still resides an instance in RAM, end it and then click the Chrome warning dialog Firefox before importing close on Next .

Two Microsoft browsers: hand-in-hand
Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer will work differently under Windows 10. If a Web page in Edge is flawed or does not work properly, click the three points in the upper-right corner and click Open with Internet Explorer . The web presence also loads in the IE. The latter has brought a new button since the Windows 10 Creators update, which also calls the displayed page in Edge. The button is next to the button for new tabs; The button comes in the edge symbol style.

Chromium-based browsers like Google Chrome and Opera also use the proxy address, which is under Windows-R> inetcpl.cpl> Connections> LAN settings.
