I have never gotten any of those to decipher firefox'
bookmarks. Yahoo's, par exemple, always crashes when trying
to read and nothing is ever imported. Google's bookmarks
appear to require entering bookmarks manually (predicated on
the idea that we all install the google toolbar -- I never
do! I don't care to have them monitor all my activities, as
if they don't know enough already).
However, despite my initial horror at the change from
firefox' old 'flat' html bookmark file, this new json method
is veritably excellent, especially if you force yourself to
do the task of tagging all the bookmarks. If you don't
remember the website name, just type a tag into the location
bar and firefox will present a list of possible sites from
your bookmarks, from your history and from it's 'knowledge'
The drawback is that .json is not text-editable and relies on
the bookmark tool program (which used to crash a lot in the
early days of firefox 3).
