For years I have been an avid Firefox supporter, and to some extent I still am. However, Edge is getting much better (so fresh and so clean), and Chrome is really this ‘reference’ browser where most things just work. What I’m trying to say is that we can’t really be bound to just one browser anymore. But…
We have hundreds of passwords floating around. And for me, these were living in the Firefox Sync password system, and I couldn’t really get them out! I waited patiently for Edge to support importing data from other browsers, but sadly it doesn’t work for Firefox passwords. Chrome also currently has a bug importing Firefox passwords. Its almost like these browsers just want you to choose only one and stick to it 🙂
What is the answer?
Well, finally, Edge does support a few extensions. One of these extensions is LastPass. It allows you to import and sync passwords from basically all browsers, and even imports things like Windows Wifi passwords, and then syncs them across devices for you. Great!
Using LastPass, I imported all my Firefox passwords. Then, I installed the Windows app to grab other passwords like my Wifi profiles. Finally, I can now freely switch between browsers and my passwords are all in sync!
There are some other great third party download managers available – which one do you use?
Jdownloader is quite unique and powerful – check it out if you haven’t before. From the website: It simplifies downloading files from One-Click-Hosters like Rapidshare.com or Megaupload.com – not only for users with a premium account but also for users who don’t pay. It offers downloading in multiple parallel streams, captcha recognition, automated file extraction, and much more. Of course, JDownloader is absolutely free of charge.
