Today, Google announced plans to bring its new Bookmark Manager to Chrome’s beta build. Mountain View says it will release this new content management feature over the next few weeks, so it might not show up right away. Based on the project referred to as “Stars,” Google quietly released this item last month as a Chrome extension, however this new direction suggests that it will eventually be baked into the company’s popular browser.
To take Chrome’s new bookmark management system for a spin, point and click on: Chrome Menu > Bookmarks > Bookmarks Manager. If you’re running the latest beta version of Chrome, here’s what you can expect:
- Improved search: Quickly find that elusive page with search powered by Google, which looks not only at the bookmark title and snippet, but also the bookmarked page’s content.
- Collect bookmarks by topic: Your bookmarks will automatically be organized by topic, like “Tokyo” and “Photography.” If you’d rather, you can still organize them into folders yourself.
- Familiar bookmarks, new look: Your existing bookmarks will automatically get updated with images and descriptions, wherever possible.
- Share: Have a folder of favorite bookmarks? You can make it public and share the link with whomever you’d like to access it.
- Access your bookmarks anywhere: Bookmarked an article on your phone to finish reading on your laptop? Chrome will continue to sync your bookmarks across all of your devices, just like it does today.
