    Recently migrated from firefox. So far I've installed adblock extension, tineye, as well as the smooth scroll one Cabalo linked to earlier (havent noticed what it does ). Anyways, ctrl-shift-b hides my bookmark toolbar from the top of my screen. I'm used to ctrl-b bringing up all my bookmarks in a left justified column, but that feature doesn't exist in Chrome.

    its terribly annoying to click on the 'other bookmarks' dropdown menu whenever i want a bookmark, is there an extension or some form of shortcut which will toggle bookmarks?

    also, if you use chrome and use other useful extensions, post em and Ill check em out

    that is the exact same as the normal google bookmarks, it doesn't stay open after you click a link. :/ damn google is becoming the next apple, deciding for us what features we need or don't need.

    I guess I'll just have to deal with it, or maybe firefox will become faster and then I'll go back

    What the hell, how do people hate the sidebar of bookmarks???!! Did chrome use to have one similar to firefox? I can't stand making 2 or 3 precise mouse clicks to hit a bookmark, such a waste of focus and time when I can just have them always open on the side in firefox.

    So frustrating, chrome is best at everything else I need in a browser

    What I did:
    Went to the bookmark manager and added folders with my bookmarks on the bookmarks bar.
    Something like this:
