Description from store Bookmark dial ============= Displays the contents of a bookmark folder including a thumbnail when you start the browser and open a new tab (instead of frequently visited sites, suggestions and sponsored links). Similar extensions call this speed dial. In most cases they do not use bookmarks and/or require you to manually tweak settings to change the layout of the thumbnails. By default, Bookmark Dial arranges and sizes (up to a maximum size) the thumbnails to be as big as possible while covering as much space as possible. As a bookmark folder is used, sync comes with your browser and you can use the usual keyboard shortcuts, menu entries and buttons for bookmark handling to add, edit and delete dial items. You can drag and drop thumbnails to change the order. Thumbnails are generated from a snapshot of the visible area of a bookmarked webpage. If a bookmark has no thumbnail yet, a snapshot is taken automatically when the bookmark is opened in the currently active tab or if it is loaded in a background tab and the tab becomes active. To ensure the best result, the generation starts when the page has completed loading. There is also a button in the popup opened from the toolbar icon that allows you to create a new snapshot (disabled for URLs that do not belong to bookmarks from the configured folder). The latter allows you to capture the part of a webpage that you want as you can scroll and resize the window before taking the snapshot. Getting Started --------------- Configure the bookmark folder and check available settings in the popup opened from the toolbar icon or from the extension page in your browser's extension manager. Open a new tab. Customisation ------------- You can set a background colour and/or image (including sizing) in the preferences. There is also a text field to provide custom CSS. Known Issues ------------ - if a bookmark redirects to another page, thumbnail generation will fail as the URL of the bookmark will not match the page in the currently active tab - color chooser and file chooser close the popup - to change settings using them, go to the extension page in your browser's extension manager - special URLs like about: chrome: file: etc can cause problems - thumbnail generation might fail or bookmarks won't open - due to limitations in the webextension API Feedback -------- You can report bugs or make feature requests on https://github.com/sblask/webextension-bookmark-dial Patches are welcome.

  • (2020-02-06) Jim Schwartz: The "Toolbar Dial" Free simple no frills extension version is excellent for categorizing bookmarks into folders... I tested it on the Chromium Brave Browser by building 12 folders with 101 bookmarks on Windows 10 then synced it to my Lenovo Android tablet... Everything worked and that is what counts....The version with the color background/picturesneeds some work.... Does not show folders....
