Have you tried Google’s new browser, “Chrome”? It’s fast and it rocks. But there’s no Google Toolbar! How can you bookmark pages to a central location (Google Bookmarks)? Here’s how, in just a few quick and easy steps :-D.
- First, download Chrome (duh!) :-D.
- If you don’t already see a bookmarks bar (right below the address bar or “omnibar” and above the actual web page) turn it on by hitting CTRL-B (you can hide it anytime by hitting CTRL-B again).
- Visit this help page on Google Chrome and bookmarking.
- Go ahead and—you guessed it—drag that little box to the bookmarks area of Chrome.
VOILA! Now whenever you want to bookmark a page, just click on that little bookmark.

But what happens when you want to find that page again?
Well, for one thing, Chrome’s omnibar is pretty damn smart… even smarter than you might initially expect! Try typing just a few letters from that site’s URL or title and it may very well show up for you in the omnibar :-D. But if you still want to see all your bookmarks, you can do one of two things:
- Revisit Google Bookmarks OR
- Check out the cooler experience of Google Notebook, and you’ll find all your bookmarks under the UNFILED folder (click on the left), where you can annotate, group, and optionally share your favorite bookmarks with friends.

Hope these tips help you enjoy Chrome even more!
