Chrome Dev Revamps The Bookmarks Widget With Material Design

We already know at least one improvement with the latest Chrome Dev build (v51): the complete removal of the 'Merge Tabs and Apps' option. Well, here's the second improvement: a brand new widget. Or rather, a revamped version of an older widget.

The bookmarks widget, formerly with big, largely useless thumbnails, has been re-designed to use a list item style instead of a grid, and material design navigation. The result is a much cleaner-looking widget, with better, easier to understand navigation to boot. It has shown me how disorganised my bookmarks are, though.

Of course, the widget won't make your bookmarks any more organised - we can only hope that feature will come to Google Now in the future - but maybe it will encourage you to organise them into folders and such.

Chrome For Android 47 Tweaks The Bookmarks Interface With A Slide-Out Menu, At Least For Some

Chrome's URL bar is so fast that I generally don't even bother with bookmarks anymore, but those who do might have noticed that they look a little different lately. In the latest version of the Chrome stable build for Android, there's a new user-selectable flag that can enable or disable a different interface for the Bookmarks manager. It can be enabled (or disabled, if you prefer) in the Flags settings page: chrome://flags/#enhanced-bookmarks-experiment.

Google Stars Appears To Be Back As 'Bookmark Manager' For Chrome

We've been seeing bits and pieces (and fully functional prototypes) of Google Stars for a long time now. The tool, which for now acts as a replacement for Chrome's bookmark manager, has been in development even longer, but it looks like the Chrome extension might finally be ready to roll (assuming it doesn't get pulled again) as Google released "Bookmark Manager" to the Chrome Web Store earlier today.

Despite the new name, the extension takes over chrome://bookmarks just as before, with options to organize bookmarks into folders, give those folders descriptions, and even share folders with others. Of course the interface for adding a bookmark is also updated.

Google Stars Spotted Again—Still Evolving And Not Ready For Primetime Yet

It's been a few months since Google accidentally left the Stars bookmark management extension visible in the Chrome App Store. We had been hearing about the development of Stars for some time before that, so its appearance was not entirely surprising. However, Mountain View removed the listing and didn't mention Stars at I/O this year. Now Florian Kiersch has gotten a look at the updated version of Stars. It's clear Google is still making improvements to the service, but it's definitely not done yet.

Facebook Save Is A New Auto-Categorized Bookmarking Feature For Your News Feed

Let's just say you popped open Facebook and spotted something interesting shared by one of your friends – maybe you want to save that? I can't remember the last time this happened, but I'm sure it's possible. That's what Facebook's newly announced Save feature is for, and I'm kind of surprised it didn't already exist.

From The Creators Of Tagy: Imgy Offers Unlimited Homescreen Capacity, Resizes Your App, Bookmark, And Contact Icons Based On Click Frequency

Just under a month ago, Minimax brought us Tagy, a cool little widget that would turn your app names into "tag clouds," where some would be bigger than others, based on your click frequency. Now, with Imgy, the developer has applied the same principle to app icons - have a look:

2012-07-01 11.51.59 2012-07-01 11.54.59 2012-07-01_16-44-34

After you select the apps / bookmarks / contacts you want, Imgy will create a homescreen widget (you can decide how large said widget will be) with icons for the selected content. Mind you, you're free to choose as many apps, bookmarks, or contacts as you'd like - Imgy will just resize their icons appropriately, making for unlimited homescreen capacity.

Dolphin Browser Bookmark Extension Now Available In The Chrome Web Store, Seamlessly Syncs Your Chrome Bookmarks With Dolphin

Bookmark sync is one of the best features of the Android stock browser (and Chrome for ICS devices), but there's one major flaw with it: what if you don't use the stock browser (or you don't have ICW)? Well, if Dolphin's your default browser, we have good news - there's now an extension in the Chrome Web Store that allows Dolphin to sync all of your desktop bookmarks to your mobile, and vice-versa.

Setup seems pretty straightforward, but you need to have Dolphin Connect set up beforehand. After that, just download and install the Dolphin Bookmarks extension from the Web Store, click the Dolphin icon next to the Omnibox, and login to start syncing.

Dolphin 7.0 Adds Cloud Sync Of Preferences And Gestures, Revamped WebZine, Exclusively Available In GetJar Now And Android Market October 23rd

Dolphin HD, one of my favorite browsers (at least until ICS), was updated to version 7.0 today, available exclusively from GetJar until October 23rd, at which point it will be released to the Android Market.

The new version brings cloud sync of browsing preferences and gestures in addition to bookmarks across all your Android devices - something Dolphin is calling Dolphin Connect. In addition to that, Dolphin 7 revamps the WebZine interface for easier navigation and prettier, more robust UI.

Ice Cream Sandwich Feature Closer Look - New Browser (No, It Isn't Chrome) Includes Tabs, Desktop Mode, And More

Leading up to last night's Ice Cream Sandwich announcement, there were rumblings that perhaps Chrome would make its Android debut with the latest iteration of Google's mobile OS. Unfortunately, those rumors turned out to be false, but the new browser that Google has cooked up looks pretty awesome, and packs in a lot of notable features.

First off, the browser has been redesigned. Personally, I think it looks (and functions) much better than its Gingerbread counterpart. Instead of simply having a bookmark button and address bar up top, the new browser has the address bar, a tabs button, and a menu button.

Dolphin HD, one of the top web browsers for Android, got updated to version 6.2 today, bringing more accurate gesture recognition and a slew of improvements for webzine viewing. The most notable improvement brought by 6.2 is support for the Bookmark Sync add-on, a separately downloadable plugin that allows users to backup and sync their Dolphin bookmarks.

This is a great feature, allowing you to keep your Dolphin bookmarks consistent across all your Android devices easily. If you haven't already, head over to the Market, grab the update, and enjoy.
