    There is an app called Safari Enhancer on
    If you install it, it will add a menu option to import IE bookmarks.

    I am switching over also and was hoping that I could simply bring my favourites folder over and select every 1 individually and save them in safari. I know its not the quickest way but I don't have many, is this possible?

    Importing bookmarks the first time you start Safari

    The first time you open Safari, it automatically imports your bookmarks from Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, and Mozilla.

    At this time, you cannot import bookmarks from other web browsers into Safari. You might be able to move your bookmarks to Safari by exporting them from your web browser as an HTML document. Then open the document in Safari and open your Bookmarks Library in a separate window. Drag the links from the first window to a collection in your Bookmarks Library.
