    I have a lot of bookmarks on my Droid and don't want to manually transfer them one by one. Is there a way to email the bookmark list to myself, so I can look at them on my desktop (a Mac with Safari as browser)? I see ways to back up the list with an app but not to transfer it to a different browser, so if I could put it into an email, I'd be OK. Thanks!.

    Not sure of a way to do it by batch, but you can do it one by one. Just open the bookmark in the browser, then hit menu-share page, and either email it, text it, bluetooth it etc

    Depends probably on what browser you use on your Droid.
    Free solutions
    -Default browser can synchronize bookmarks to Chrome using Phonemarks app along with Phonemarks extension
    -Opera can sync all its bookmarks via Opera Link to Opera on PC and you can export from that. Safari can also access Opera Link website but I dont know if it has sync or import functionality from it. However Opera on PC can export its bookmarks to Safari.
    -Dolphin Browser can synchronize bookmarks between it and Mac/PC browsers (Chrome, IE, FireFox, Safari) via Xmarks for Dolphin on phone and Xmarks plugin on the browser.

    Paid
    -So far the only paid synchronizer I know is Xmarks premium. This one is the same as Xmarks for Dolphin, with the exception that it also works for the default browser, and I think would also work for any browser on the phone


    Havent used firefox but I think it can also sync to firefox on PC, from which you can export those bookmarks.
