Solved Running all three Browsers, what do you think?

Specs: Windows 8.1, 8gbram
Well here is my goal. I have IE on OS 8.1 right now. I want to run Firefox for the sole purpose of getting my Yahoo Bookmarks. And if someone knows how I can get them to Google Chrome, thus the reason that I will be running Chrome, please let me know how to go about doing this. Chrome is in the cloud correct? And for which I have gotten a new system and download Chrome, all the favorites/bookmarks that I had should still be there, correct? Then I want to go back to IE.< It is still my personal choice when it comes to browsers. Firefox I have never used. Chrome is apps and extensions. IE is very user friendly when it come to website navigation and other choices I prefer. Thank you, please be specific if you know how I can get my Yahoo Bookmarks. I have two ids and each has about 1,500+ bookmarks. Yahoo didn't see this as a useful tool, but when have they ever seen anything useful

I think is what you are looking to do if you want your bookmarks to be accessible in IE.

Sorry Grasshopper but you are wrong, there no longer is a Yahoo page for Yahoo Bookmarks, some how they disabled it and you can't view it. See within the last few months Yahoo sort of so to speak disbanded Bookmarks. The only way to view them is to download Firefox. Yahoo is pushing Firefox as their default browser, they don't want to use IE anymore. I wonder why, maybe because the CEO that is running Yahoo now is an ex Google employee named Marissa Mayers. And pushing us to use Google Chrome would look a little fishy to federal regulations if they would see this. So that is why I need to know can I run all 3 browsers, when I get my bookmarks from Firefox and download them to Chrome. If Chrome is better than Firefox. Then I will use IE as my default browser and go to Chrome when I need to access the favorites/bookmarks that I store there. Google Chrome is cloud based correct.

I'm really not aware of what Yahoo does, nor do I care. If you like IE, and it doesn't support Yahoo bookmarks, I would download and install Firefox. I understand Firefox supports the latest Yahoo toolbar for accessing mail. Like Derek said, you can have as many browsers installed as you like. Just switch over to Firefox if you want to use Yahoo. I can't imagine having 1500 bookmarks on each account. I can't imagine having 1500 bookmarks period. I would forget about Chrome if you use Firefox. You wouldn't need it. As far as the Yahoo conspiracy theory goes, you'd have to check with Snowden on that. That is as soon as he finds a place to live, Ha !!!
