Chrome Bookmark Search
Item media 1 screenshot

Overview

Use [CTRL] + [L] to search your bookmarks (a version of the omnibox only suggesting bookmarks). Also used on the New Tab page.

This extension injects JavaScript code on every page you visit listening for you pressing [CTRL] + [L] on the keyboard. This keyboard combination usually moves the focus to the omnibox, but this extension instead shows a popup allowing you to search for your bookmarks (see screenshot). Why use this extension? At least I hate the way the omnibox works (suggests search history before your own bookmarks, which is stupid!), and this extension fix that by only searching your bookmarks, and not your search history. If you don't select a suggested bookmark you will simply search for the entered text on Google or go to the URL you have entered. This extension also overrides the New Tab page, so you can search for your bookmarks from there as well.

Just like the last review, I love the CTRL + L feature to look up bookmarks, but I really hate the way it also overrides CTRL + T to create a new tab. As previously mentioned, the new tab override function should at least be a feature that it toggleable to enable or disable. Or, in my opinion, it should be thrown out of the code entirely due to redundancy. Until then, I'll be looking for a new extension and leave this "good idea" at 4/5 stars.

Can you please make overriding the black page configurable with your extension page, this would really help me...because we can access this extension using shortcut!
