    Do other browsers have something comparable to "Favorites Center" in IE?

    I love Internet Explorer's "Favorites Center" in Version 8 (Yes, I'm still using Windows XP Service Patch 3). I believe that the "Favorites Center" feature has been carried on in IE Version 9 & 10. Although I also use Google Chrome quite a bit, I miss the "Favorites Center".

    Do other browsers have something comparable to the "Favorites Center" feature in Internet Explorer? I can't be the only person that loves it? Thanks for any help.

    I've grown very accustomed to Chrome despite more limited customization like a margin bar for favorites. I know Avant Browser has a fairly well developed Favorites-type margin bar, Opera used to, don't know about now. Avant also has the option of downloading the "uber-" browser version that includes all three big browser engines (I.E., Chrome, FF) that are easy to switch off to if one is having a problem with a particular website, kinda neat. AB might be a bit buggier than the average browser though, not sure.

    Just checked FF and that has an option for a side bar of favorites as well, don't know if you mean something more specific by "center" but that's what I took it for.

    I was hoping for something that I was missing in Google Chrome. I've never been a fan of FireFox, but I'll consider it. Judging from the fact that this thread got only 1 reply, I guess that I'm in the minority when it comes to being a fan of "Favorites Center". To me, it's a major browser feature. Thanks for your help!

    I like it and my Mother considers it vital, but Chrome has won me over despite its poor offerings in the Bookmarks/Favorites department.

    I didn't think it had been called Favorites Center since IE7 on Vista: Favorites Center

    But I was wrong. Microsoft still refer to it as Favorites Center in places, e.g.: "... your favorites and feeds appear in Favorites Center when you click the Favorites button" on IE9.
