Google Chrome’s bookmarks bar is a groovy place to keep all of your most frequently used websites. The number of bookmarks you can squeeze into the Chrome bookmarks bar depends on your window size and the text length of the bookmarks. For months, I was shortening all of my bookmark bar bookmarks to a single letter so I could maximize my shortcuts.
But then, I re-read the groovyPost we wrote up a few months back on how-to shorten the bookmarks to just a favicon with Firefox and tried it out with Google Chome. Yahoo! Good news:
Simple remove the name from your bookmarks and it’ll just show the favicon, giving you even more room to add shortcuts. For me, all I need is the icon to remember where the bookmark takes me.
To do this, either leave the Name: field blank when creating a new bookmark, or Right-click an existing bookmark, choose Edit… and clear the Name: field.
The same process works using Camino, Safari and Firefox, too. Groovy!
