With support for blank page titles and keyboard navigation, 'Recent Bookmarks' truly enhances bookmark management.

If you're like me, you use bookmarks as short term memory; Flagging something for further reading a little later. Unfortunately, the Other Bookmarks menu puts newly added bookmarks at the bottom of the list, meaning lots of scrolling or having to open the Bookmark Manager.

Recent Bookmarks solves this by displaying a simple and elegant list of the most recent bookmarks you've made. It groups the bookmarks based on the days they were added. Hovering over a bookmark will show the exact date and time it was added.

The extension can be configured to display between 5 and 1000 of your most recent bookmarks.
