Hi, I noticed that Epiphany or Web 3.24 only support bookmark files in GVDB format, but I only have an HTML from Google Chrome.

The question is: how can I convert or import this file into web?

You can import from Chrome to Firefox and from Firefox to GNOME Web. Not an ideal workflow, but it will get the job done.

Head over to the GNOME Bug tracker and vote for Bug 775900 – Add option to import bookmarks from Google Chrome . Show that there is people out there who want this feature.

Not sure about that but there's "a way around it". You can import bookmarks from HTML into Firefox and then use Import menu in Epiphany (Gnome Web) to import bookmarks from Firefox.

Unfortunately I don't use Firefox, only Chromium and Epiphany, I always uninstall firefox once I complete the installation of the system.

Installing it again shouldn't be an issue, and you can easily remove it once done. with importing bookmarks.
