[Tool] Backup your Browser with ease using FavBackup

by Karthik on November 17, 2009 · 2 comments


Browser’s have come to become an inevitable part of our lives now. Almost everyday I bookmark so many websites, save new passwords, install and remove extensions. With this changes everyday I was always on the lookout for a reliable and easy backup solution to my Browser data.

Till date Firefox along with FEBE satisfied all my needs, but doing backups using FEBE wasn’t easy and had its own share of disadvantages. Also over the years Chrome, Safari also have started to contribute quite a lot to my browser share. So what do I do?

I download and run the portable app FavBackup on my machine. In short this is what FavBackup does:

FavBackup is a simple solution for you to backup and restore web browser settings and other data on Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000 systems. No installation required.

FavBackup supports IE 6-8, Firefox 2-3.5, Opera9 or 10, Safari 3 or 4, Google Chrome 1-4, Flock 2.0-2.5.

Here are some screenshots of FavBackup in action :

See how simple FavBackup makes the process of doing browser backups? So the next time you reinstall Windows, or accidently delete some data, FavBackup will always be there for you. In its current incarnation here are some of the known bugs in FavBackup.

  • General: Restoring backups directly from DVD/CD drive can give error. Copy backup to your PC first.
  • Windows XP: When using low screen resolution, scrollbars might appear.
