Give feedback on the new bookmarks experience in Chrome3 Recommended Answers
Your bookmarks are how you and millions of other users keep track of important things across the web. The web has grown over the years, but bookmarks stayed the same. If you're on the Chrome Dev/Canary channel, the latest release will include our new bookmarks experience: we've made them more powerful, with an updated design for the bookmarks themselves and the bookmark manager.
Check out the new Bookmarks Manager UI by going to Chrome Menu > Bookmarks > Bookmarks Manager. You’ll notice that your bookmarks are now more visual with an improved search, plus we added auto-folders which organize your bookmarks for you. (Your favorite bookmarks in the bookmarks bar will remain the same.)
This feature is also not yet available for Chrome OS users.
Questions, feedback? Join the discussion here - we’d love to hear your thoughts on our new bookmarks experience.
Thank you for your continued feedback. Please know that we are listening and appreciate taking the time to provide your thoughts. I want to respond and update you on some of the feedback that has been provided. I’ve also asked a few follow-up questions below.
We don’t have plans to share at the time, but we’re looking for more information about how you’re using the “organize alphabetically” feature. Could you use the new bookmarks search to achieve the same thing you did before? We’d appreciate it if you replied with more details about what you use the feature for.
While some users have loved the new images we've added to bookmarks, we've found that some users would like to see more bookmarks in one page. To help those users, we're working on ways to view and manage more tiles in one page. We’re hoping to share these enhancements with you soon!
Dragging and dropping into nested folders
We've changed the way to move bookmarks into nested folders:
1. Select all of the bookmarks you want to move
2. Click on “Choose a folder” at the top of the Bookmark Manager
3. Click on the folder or type to quickly search for it
Please let us know if that helps, or how else we can improve it for you!
The look of the bookmark thumbnails
We're trying new ways to make beautiful tiles for sites without good images. We'd love it if you could give us examples of URLs you bookmark that don't have good images — examples will help us show more delightful images for your bookmarks.
Thanks and we’d love to hear more specifically on examples of websites that need improvement for their thumbnail images and on how you’re using the “organize alphabetically” feature.
I have over 6k and although I can see the new bookmark pop-up when I try to star a page, navigating to the manager page shows the old version. This happens on both Version 40.0.2204.0 and Version 39.0.2171.42 but on Canary I can at least find the extension in the manager and uninstall it. On 39 it doesn't show up at all.
According to this thread a similar issue occurs with as little as 3k bookmarks.

This Bookmark Manager extension is an unmitigated disaster. What is represented in the tiles UI has little relationship to the order in which things appear in my bookmark menus. I cannot imagine using this tool to create and organize my ~1000 bookmarks. This is a toy, suitable for people who have fewer than 100 bookmarks, who don't bother to organize them.
Worst of all, after removing the extension, it re-activated itself, and now if I go to the web store and try to install it, I get an error message: "An error has occurred. This item is already being downloaded and added into Chrome."
