I know I can copy the ENTIRE bookmarks folder from one Profile and use that to REPLACE the bookmarks folder in another Profile. Not what I want.
All I want are some of the bookmarks. Can I create a file with just them, and then Import them (without wiping out the existing bookmarks file)?
Maybe there is a way to Synch just the bookmarks folder between two drives?
Either way, the hassle is that one drive will be hooked up as an external and under OSX the Profile folder won't be accessible to the User who is logged in. So I would need to startup with the external drive, drop a copy of the bookmarks folder into the Shared folder, then restart and login with the internal drive...

Here's a reddit post I've made about this concept: https://www.reddit.com/r/compsci/comments/a019qi/ccibased_web_security_a_design_using_pgp_1995_23/
and here's the video that reignited this idea that I've had in my head for years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DM1tPmxGY7Y
If there were a new element created to relay encrypted data, the browser could decrypt them in a secure fashion. This could be used for anything from cryptocurrency in the web to messaging, really any communication of data. What it would do is remove trust from the service providing the encrypted data to decrypt it safely, and rather than having the poor ux experience of using the GPG command line, keychains could be stored with the browser. If this were a standard, it would make services like protonmail look like they're run by the NSA
My initial thought was something like a closed shadow dom created by a browser extension, and though it may be possible to make decrypted text unreadable by XSS/attacker js in this way, it's not necessarily recommended, as for example the function that creates the closed shadow dom element could potentially be overridden by an attacker. This is why I think it should be built into the browser. Something like Mozilla, TOR, or the w3c would be a good starting point for a project like this.
I have followed the procedure for importing settings and data. The options for Safari are only bookmarks - is there a way to get the passwords over as well?
