Holmes


Bookmark Search Extension for Chrome

I had a problem with my always growing bookmark stack in Chrome and found that basic Bookmark Manager wasn't the best for quickly searching through my bookmarks. So I created a Holmes.

With Holmes you can search bookmarks in your Chrome's omnibox(url bar) or Holmes own UI(keyboard shortcut Alt+Shift+H)
