Google Stars , does that speak to you? But let's see, this new ultra revolutionary manager of favorites that we have been talking about since the beginning of the year, and which was leaked last May. There it is. Why talk about it today? Quite simply because it is available to everyone. Officially. But not under that name. And if you want to know more, it's not complicated, we'll talk about it right away.
As some of you may know, Stars made it to the Chrome Web Store just before Google I / O, and we obviously had millions rushing over to get it installed in our Navigator. And also to recover the history installation file that everyone can enjoy.
Google did not really communicate on this leak, content to correct the problem by removing the extension from its store … to release it again several months later, and more precisely that night.
Directly integrated with Chrome
Bookmark Manager , that's its final name, presents itself as a bookmarks manager. However, it has nothing to do with a Delicious since it is directly integrated into the browser. In fact, it even replaces the old bookmarks system, if you want to know everything.
And rest assured, because it will recover all your bookmarks without requiring any intervention on your part. Magnificent.
The thing is, it's definitely more efficient than the latter and its interface is also more fashionable, with a card system that is not bad for a penny.
Then, well you just have to use your browser as usual. You just have to click on the star in the address bar of your browser to add a new page to your favorites. The extension will automatically retrieve the title and an excerpt from the page, as well as a visual to illustrate it. If necessary, you can add it to a specific file or let the service take care of everything for you. It actually has the good idea to integrate an automatic filing system.
I had published a grip on the expansion before the summer so I won't go into details here. If you want to know more, this is where it happens. Otherwise, the extension can be downloaded from this address, but you need a recent version of Chrome to use it.
