How To Transfer Bookmarks To Another Browsersbm site services
If you are Internet addicted like me then you must like to read your favorite sites every day. If the list is long then some it become tough to remember url of each sites. So every browser has a bookmark option by which you can easily access the sites from the Bookmark list without typing the url.
But if you use more than one browser then bookmarking your favorite site url in each of them is so boring. Generally, you use to open those sites from the bookmark list in your older browser and copy the urls from the address bar, then paste in the new browser’s address bar. Oops! Not so productive method! Is there any method to reduce the boredom? Fortunately, the answer is yes.
Almost every browser has the option to import and export the bookmark list in HTML format. In your browser menu bar, find out the Bookmark export option. Export the Bookmark list in HTML format. Now import that HTML file in each browser where you want to save those. If you are using Firefox then click on “Bookmarks” menu and select “Organize Bookmarks…”.
In the upcoming window choose the list under “All Bookmarks”. You can choose either “Bookmarks Menu” or “Bookmarks Toolbar”. Now click on “Import and Backup” option then select “Export”.
Chose the location to save the HTML file and click on “Save”. Now you are ready to import that HTML file in any browser.
For instance, I’m describing the import method for Google Chrome browser. Open your Google chrome browser. Expand the setting button from the top right of the browser. Click on “Bookmark manager”.
Now select “Tools > Import bookmarks..”.
After that just locate the exported HTML file and click on “Open”.
Though the above method was for Google Chrome you can apply it for any other browser.
Note: By exporting the Bookmark list, you can save it for later use.

But here is some tricky practice that will let you to associate same email address in multiple Twitter account.You can handle all twitter accounts using one email account satisfying only one condition that you have to use the Gmail or Google Apps email address.
What is the reason that only Gmail or Google Apps are eligible to use for this tricks
Do you know in Gmail you can add one or multiple dot(.) in the user name and all the email sent to those addresses will reach at one address.For example let you have a Gmail account like firstname.lastname@example.org. Then any email sent to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org will reach at the address email@example.com as Gmail automatically ignore the dots in user name.
Now Twitter will treat the addresses firstname.lastname@example.org. email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org as different address and allow you to register with those.But they will point the same Gmail inbox.
