This extension allows for quick access to bookmarks using keyboard shortcuts.

The number of the speed dial for each bookmark is determined by the order of the bookmarks in your bookmarks bar. If you have a folder called 'Speed Dial' in your bookmarks bar, its bookmarks override the ones on the bookmarks bar (if you're the type of person who prefers to keep their bookmarks bar free for other things) for Speed Dial purposes. There are also options to let you: Open folders (all bookmarks in a folder will open in new tabs). Specify if you want bookmarks to be opened in a new tab instead of the current one.

New in version 2.1: Invoke Javascript bookmarklets on the current page (but only if you enable it). This one is due to user demand, so I hope it makes everyone happy to have this option.

Due to limitations set on extensions, the keyboard shortcuts are not fully enabled by default. You can enable them from the extensions menu by typing "chrome://extensions" in the address bar and clicking on the keyboard shortcuts button at the bottom of the page.

Permissions notice: When installing, Chrome will ask you to give the extension access to bookmarks and "read and change all your data on the websites you visit". That last one sounds pretty scary, but the extension needs access to your bookmarks to open them from speed dial, and the other one is what lets us modify what's on the current tab/open new ones/run bookmarklets if enabled. The extension doesn't actually look at your browsing history or do anything with it -- I really don't want to know what you've been looking at and I value the concept of privacy so I understand why seeing Chrome show that message would cause concerns.

Privacy Policy: This extension does not store, share, or transmit any personal information or browsing data to anyone including the developers, Google, or any third party.

Just bad design, why maintain skyboard shortcuts by order of bookmarks?
by Nir Melamoud Nir Melamoud, 2020-10-16

It doesn't seem to work on linux? There is not shortcut setting when I open its options in extension menu. Pressing alt + 1,2,3,4 takes me to the currently opened tabs.

Just the best! Due to the fact that shortcuts are CTRL+#, it doesn't conflict with text shortcuts and works everywhere! Please never cease to exist!
