Description from store Similar extensions call this speed dial. In many cases there is a third party web service behind those extensions and your data is stored remotely. Bookmark Dial on the other hand uses only browser capabilities (meaning you can use the usual keyboard shortcuts, menu entries and buttons for bookmark handling to add, edit and delete dial items) and your data only leaves your computer if you enable browser sync. Thumbnails ---------- By default, thumbnails are arranged and sized (up to a maximum size) to be as big as possible while covering as much space as possible. You can drag and drop them to change the order. They are generated from a snapshot of the visible area of a bookmarked webpage and stored in the browser. If there is no thumbnail available yet a snapshot is taken once the page has been loaded in the currently active tab. There is also a button in the popup opened from the toolbar icon to create a new snapshot. That allows you to arrange the visible area of the page by scrolling or resizing the window to capture exactly what you want. Getting Started --------------- Select a 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, no thumbnail will be generated as the its URL will not match the page in the currently active tab - special URLs like about: chrome: file: etc. can cause problems due to limitations in the webextension API - Firefox: - color chooser and file chooser close the popup - to change settings using them, go to the extension page in your browser's extension manager - compatibility issues with [New Tab Override extension](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-override/) Privacy Policy -------------- This extension does not collect or send data of any kind to third parties. Feedback -------- You can report bugs or make feature requests on [Github](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....
