What is Minimal Bookmarks Tree?
Minimal Bookmarks Tree is a user-friendly Chrome extension providing a simplified system to manage your bookmarks. Displayed in a tree format under a toolbar button, the bookmarks can be opened in different ways and edited with just a right click. The extension will remember the state of the folders. Additionally, it provides a quick search by typing 'bm' in the omnibox. Although it requires permission to view and edit your bookmarks, it will only make changes on your command. Open sourced and open for suggestions, it strives for enhanced user experience.
This extension adds a button to Chrome in the top right corner (next to the "three-dot" settings button). When you click the button you get a tree of your bookmarks with folders that you can open and close by clicking them. A simple -non obtrusive- sliding animation is applied to the opening and closing of folders.
You can open bookmarks in the following ways:
- click: open in current tab
- middle-click (scrollwheel): open in new tab and close minimal bookmarks tree
- ctrl+click: open in new tab and keep minimal bookmarks tree open
You can also right click a folder and click "Open all" to open all bookmarks in that folder in tabs.
Right click also let's you edit/delete bookmarks and folders.
The tree uses simple folder icons that show their state (open/close) and also shows the favicons for the websites you've bookmarked.
The extension remembers which folders were open, so you can leave your favorite folders open at all times.
