This extension allows to find and delete duplicate bookmarks, empty folders, merge folders with the same name (within the same path), find no longer working and expired bookmarks and remove them easily.
1. Read and change your bookmarks(required on install) – required for core functions to work
2. Read and change all your data on the websites you visit(optional, not asked until you use Broken URLs checker) – to check if bookmarked page loads and doesn’t return any error.

Warning: there is no way to restore removed bookmarks, so make sure backup your bookmarks before using this extension.
If your screen becomes RED, saying that site is deceptive while scanning for broken links you can have 2 options:
1. Remove this site from your bookmarks: (error screen shows which site causes error, just open bookmarks manager and search for this site)
2. Disable this “feature” in chrome (go to Settings -> Advanced -> Under “Privacy and security,” turn off “Protect you and your device from dangerous sites”),
