    Thank you

  3. I’d like it if the bookmarks could either always show or hide like in ie and firefox. I don’t like always having to scroll through the entire list to find what I need. It would also be nice if there were a search function. O ther than that I like chrome so far.

  4. Thanks for the tip. What a UI disgrace that I have to google the web to find the freaking bookmark bar on browser.

  5. Awesome, thanks for the tip on ctrl+shift+b. Wouldn’t have known it.
