Chrome users attack new graphical bookmarks manager

Gregg Keizer | Dec. 2, 2014
Google has started to roll out a dramatically different bookmarks manager for its Chrome browser, releasing it with the latest beta build and preparing users of the more popular stable version for an appearance within weeks.

Google has dropped flags before that Chrome users relied on to restore old features after the Mountain View, Calif. company mandated changes to the browser.

The most notable example was Google's revision of the new tab page, which was introduced in the stable build of Chrome in September 2013. Five months later, Google removed the flag that had disabled the revamped new tab page, riling users all over again. But even after vocal complaints, Google stuck with the design, telling users as late as April 2014 that it wasn't going to backtrack.

Anyone interested in trying out the new bookmarks manager can download the beta build of Chrome 40 for Windows, OS X or Linux from Google's website.

Google has not said when it will promote the new bookmarks manager to the stable channel of Chrome. But the first opportunity would be version 40, which could hit the stable branch as soon as late December or as late as the first two weeks of January 2015.
