Print page: Control-P or :print
Save page: same as print page, but use print to file.
Import bookmarks: this is harder. see below.
Export bookmarks: for purposes of using with another xxxterm, this is easy. otherwise, need to convert to html which could be scripted relatively easily. though with a bit more work than the import.
Manage bookmarks: Meta-F or :fav
Add bookmark: :favadd
Zoom in: Control-plus or Control-equal or :focusin
Zoom out: Control-minus or :focusout

Admittedly all with the keyboard, but, they can be bound to other keys or key/mousebutton combinations.

Import from Chromium can be scripted:
cat ~/.config/chromium/Default/Bookmarks | \
	grep -e name -e http | \
	grep -ve "Bookmarks Bar" -ve "Other Bookmarks" -ve "Mobile Bookmarks" | \
	sed -e 's|.*name": "\(.*\)",|\1|' -e 's|.*url": "\(.*\)"|\1|' \
	>> ~/.xxxterm/favorites
Don't have Firefox laying around so don't know about that. No reason we couldn't include a little script to do it or write a wiki page.

Keep it coming.
