While I'm out, I use my phone for web browsing. I use Dolphin HD, and have stored many bookmarks with it. What I would like to be able to do is to sync my computer's browser (currently Firefox) to the newly added Dolphin HD bookmarks (copying them FROM the phone TO the computer). I have found several web pages that describe in great detail how to do it the opposite way, but almost nothing about what I want to do. The sole exception is Xmarks... which costs money to implement. Surely Dolphin's been out long enough that there's SOMEONE out there with an app (either for FroYo or Win7) that can take the bookmarks from Dolphin and incorporate them into (or at least make them available to) a desktop's browser.

Can you export the bookmarks in Dolphin to an HTML file? Then, you can import them to another browser like Firefox, Chrome, or Opera.

If there is, I haven't found it.

I just read that there's an app called "Bookmarks to SD" that can do that.

Thank you! I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but it does look promising.
