Store 50+ Websites On The Chrome Bookmarks Bar, Using Only Favicon Of The Site

September 27, 2014

In normal case, you can see only 6-8 websites on the bookmarks bar. It consumes so much space thanks to long website title name. In this hack, I will show you how a simple tweak can remove that limitation and makes your web browsing extremely productive. And this is has pretty simple steps. This method is applicable to all browsers present in the market.

Final Result: 

Store 50+ Bookmarks on Chrome Bookmarks Bar - - 2

Show/hide bookmarks bar: Ctrl + Shift + B


Simple Steps to Follow:

Your current bookmarks bar looks like,

Store 50+ Bookmarks on Chrome Bookmarks Bar - - 3



Bookmark > Right Click > Edit

Bookmark > Right Click > Edit > Store 50+ Bookmarks on Chrome Bookmarks Bar - - 6



Erase the name of the bookmark

Store 50+ Bookmarks on Chrome Bookmarks Bar - - 4


Hit save, repeat this for all bookmarked links and voila!

Store 50+ Bookmarks on Chrome Bookmarks Bar - - 1


Apparently, this hack is also applicable to Mozilla Firefox (Bookmarks Toolbar > Properties > Name) and Opera (Same as Chrome).

IE? Ain’t got time for that!

    In the first line I read, “you can store only 6-8 websites on the bookmarks bar..”. Shouldn’t it be like we can see only 6-8 items? (but can store hundreds)
    Otherwise, great trick! I just composed mine bookmark bar too!
