Chapter 1. Getting Started > Importing Settings from Other Browsers

Importing Settings from Other Browsers

It’s usually a major effort to switch from one application to another. Not only do you usually have to learn a whole new set of finger habits, but you also have to configure the new application to make it work the way you want it to. Firefox makes transitioning from another browser fairly simple by importing configuration information from other browsers as part of the installation process. Firefox can import your settings, preferences, and favorites from IE, Netscape, Mozilla Suite, Safari, Opera, OmniWeb, or iCab.

When you install Firefox for the first time on your computer, the Firefox Import Wizard starts automatically so that you can import settings (as shown in Figure 1-1).
