The Bookmarks Bar is a handy extension docked just below the address bar of your browser that provides a one-click access to your favorite sites instantly. The Bookmarks bar does have its good points, but it is a rather a clumsy looking tool that takes up the screen space that could otherwise serve a better purpose. Hiding it doesn’t help either. Users who work a lot in the full screen mode or on a small screen will appreciate every bit of extra space they can get while at the same time want a convenient way to get to their bookmarks. Context Bookmarks is a Chrome extension that should come in handy in such situations.
Context Bookmarks for Chrome
Context Bookmarks is a Chrome extension that adds your Bookmarks bar to the right-click context menu making it easy to access your favorite sites. You can download the extension from here. Once installed, just right-click on your browser and hover your mouse over the Bookmarks bar option. All your bookmarks will be listed in their respective folders, or in case you haven’t organized your bookmarks, they will display as individual bookmarks along with their favicon. If your bookmarks are within folders and subfolders, you can access the links and click a bookmarked link to open it.
You can open your bookmarks in a new tab or in a new tab in the background. You can find the options to apply the settings in the extension’s settings. Right-click the screen and hover the mouse pointer over Bookmarks bar. In the bookmarks menu, scroll down to the very end and select Options.
In the Options page, you can also view folder options such as right-clicking on a folder to open all the links within and opening the tabs in a new background. There are also options to refresh the menu when bookmark changes are detected, manage bookmarks and Omnibox settings.
The extension also lets you search for a bookmarks folder and open all its content directly in the Omnibox by typing ‘f’ followed by a space to start your search. Apart from the bookmarks bar, Context Bookmarks also lets you access Other Bookmarks and Mobile bookmarks.
Context Bookmarks is a really useful extension that you’ll definitely love using. Check it out and tell us what you think of it.
