Bookmarks + Sidebar

  • We all know that the sidebar takes some vertical space away from our screens, while the bookmarks bar does the same with horizontal space. Due to this i realized that, in the era of widescreen monitors, i'd rather have vertical space taken away. Why not let us merge them?

    Possible ideas:

    • Enable users to add bookmarks to the sidebar as you do with the bookmarks bar(it would work the same way as the bookmarks bar, there would be a bookmarks folder by default named "Sidebar" and it would inherit the same functionalities)
    • Add an option into the setting page to "Show bookmarks from Bookmarks bar in Sidebar"
    • Enable users to add a pre-defined number of already stored bookmarks to the sidebar (ie: you can select up to 5 of your bookmarks from any folder to appear in the sidebar).

    I might be able to do some visual demos of each possibility in the near future.

  • V7 Bookmarks extension does put bookmarks in the sidebar, and manipulating those bookmarks is easier from there.
