Is it possible to export my Chromium search bookmarks to Opensearch format?

What is a 'search bookmark'? – Zoredache Dec 14 '10 at 5:32
Perhaps not the correctest of words. On firefox any keyword search is stored as a bookmark, and I guess that is when I developed this part of my lexicon. My list of search engines. – crazymthrfckr Dec 19 '10 at 9:07

As far as I know, you can't export them.

However, you can pass them from one Chrome profile to another. The file is located in %localappdata%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Web Data. Just copy it from the older profile to the new one.

The file is actually a SQLite Database, so technically you could write a script that reads the file and exports it.

Thank you, that is what I'm looking for, but what is the path on Linux? – crazymthrfckr Dec 19 '10 at 9:04
~/.config/google-chrome/Default/ I think, but I can't verify. – Juliana Peña Dec 19 '10 at 15:37
