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.
