Transfer Chrome History to New Computer:

At times, you may feel the need of transferring browser history data from your old browser to a new browser. Till the year 2011, there was no way to export the present history. Rather, you had to go to the folder where Chrome's history is stored and then you can copy and paste it to another location.

Users who have been using a particular browser for a long amount of time have saved preferences, bookmarks, and passwords. Earlier when you planned to switch browsers, you were forced to give up all these saved preferences. But now, you can easily import the Chrome history to the new browser.
