A neat bookmarks tree popup extension for Chrome. It looks slick, has bookmarks search and remembers the last opened folders and scroll position. It is also one of the most keyboard-accessible extensions, with decent WAI-ARIA support.
To search bookmarks from the address bar (omnibox), type “* ” (asterisk and space). The search character can be changed by going to Chrome > Settings > Search > Manage search engines > Search engines added by extensions (chrome://settings/searchEngines).
Many issues can be resolved by uninstalling the extension and then reinstalling after waiting a few seconds. Try this before submitting an issue report.
This extension is based on a “safe” version of the original Neat Bookmarks extension. This is NOT the current version of Neat Bookmarks in the Chrome Web Store, which still jacks ads. Neater Bookmarks does NOT contain any adware or malware or perform ad jacking, and it never will!

What i like
– fast and nested
– it wont close when i click on a particular URL, so i can choose multiple url to open
What need to be improve
– able to open all the URL even under the subfolder or sub-subfolder. This will be a great help for me to open everything under a categories foldre where i got a lot of subfolder doing subcategoring of the url. if the author willing to do this, i will sure to donate to this app.
Great extension! Only wish is that I could control the width of the drop down list.
çok beğendim. kullanıyorum.
Simple & exactly what I was looking for
Search doesn’t work.
I don’t understand what it actually does besides basic Chrome bookmark functionality.
Used it for years now… very nice and easy on the eyes
Frequently get an error message: Oops, an error has occurred – 50 -50 chance you can search your bookmarks – I’m getting rid of this useless extension
Doesn’t support JS bookmarklets
I miss the feature that the Bookmarks-List gets filtered while characters are typed into the seach box, so that only matching items gets displayed.
Additionally, Bookmarks with an empty title (so that just the icon is displayed in the Bookmarks bar) are handled bad: they should be found by names in the URL and they should be remioved from the list if there is no match in the search textbox.
Doesn’t work with bookmarks with spaces (%20) in the URL.
Zoom setting only works at 10% granularities. Setting to 125% gives the same zoom of fonts in the popup menu as do 120% to 129%. For me, 120% is a bit small and 130% is a bit large, so I wanted to use 125% but this extension uses increments of 10%.
Middle-click on a bookmark is supposed to load it in a new tab. No, what actually happens is this extensions opens *TWO* new tabs for the middle-clicked bookmark. If the middle-click option is set to open the bookmark in a new tab, nope, the bookmark opens in a foreground tab (and loads in 2 new tabs). The author must have some duplicate code on the middle-click event that results in loading 2 new tabs instead of 1, and missing code to allow loading the new tabs in the background (I prefer foreground loading, but this option should obey its description). Since middle-clicking is not working (open 2 tabs instead of 1, not loading in background if configured that way), I had to enable the left-click option to load the bookmark in a new tab (instead of into the current tab) and forego using middle-clicking of bookmarks presented in this extensions dialog.
The option to keep open the popup (this extension’s dialog showing the list of bookmarks) does not work. When I click on a bookmark in its list, the popup disappears. That means I cannot open several bookmarks from its popup list. I have to select a bookmark, a new tab loads and the popup list disappears, and I have to click this extension’s toolbar button again to get at another bookmark. Yes, I can middle-click on a folder to load all bookmarks under that folder, but I may only want to open some of them.
This extension is broken. Oops, now I see why. It’s last update was way back in 2014. Weren’t dinosaurs still roaming the planet back then? That is, 5 years is way too long a version cycle for use within a parent program (web browser) that get several versions per year. Obviously this extension has been abandoned. The “home” site it a Github project page, and there haven’t been updates to it in 7 years!
2019年11月了， 我还在用。 请问有其他类似这种简洁的标签，可以代替的吗？
Exactly perfect. Been using Chrome for years and the browser’s devs somehow never thought that the bookmarks interface needed improving.
Another old-but-still-good extension, this just makes the whole bookmarking process (and organziing, and finding, etc) smoother, easier, and more customizable. I hope it keeps working for quite a while!
So far so good. A simple extension to add a dropdown list from the icon instead of opening a new tab of my bookmarks and without needing to dock the bookmark bar which ends up taking up more screen space.
Search did not work and crashed right away.
