I can see that. I would think that's my biggest qualm with it too, although I extend its environment to also mean the amount of people using it and everyone wanting to put their hand in the pie and make 40 million frameworks that aren't always designed well.
I never bother with bookmarks in the Chrome browser, because I organize my URL's of interest in a separate document.
But today, I wanted to bookmark the Jacquie Lawson Advent Calendar website my mother sent me. I realized I had absolutely no clue how to bookmark a page in Chrome. Had to google it. Oh, there's a "star" icon on the URL bar that I basically always ignore.
Now, how to find the bookmark. Ummm... Google again. Oh, the vertical ... and then "Bookmarks" But my bookmark isn't there. Another layer of indirection "Bookmark Manager" OK, still not there. Another layer of indirection (at this point I'm just clicking on things randomly) it's in the "Mobile bookmarks" folder.
WTF. I'm at home, on my laptop, not some mobile device. Gawd, these UI's suck trunk sometimes.
there is a menu bar, on the menu bar is an item called Bookmarks. Oh wait, I'm using a good browser.
why do people use chrome?
apart from being a memory and CPU hog it's been so simplified (which makes that 'hog' thing even less rational) it needs a pack of add-ons to be remotely useful (which exacerbates the hog-ness). Perhaps the model they are using is soviet era cars? (Yes, those have a fan club too.)
In short: chrome sucks, it's not the fastest, it's far from the best.
(even ie has standard features chrome seriously needs).
Signature ready for installation. Please Reboot now.
quoting marketing $$$t will get you banned from here. Seriously, I had a couple of multiple day meetings listening to stuff like this from the "sales guys" - I was the lone techie. I wanted to take the customer techies and kill my sales people.
Try CTRL+SHIFT+B - it toggles a bookmarks bar just under the URL/google bar.
When you click the star, it remembers the last set you used and adds it to that, but you can change that with the "Folder" dropdown that appears when you click the star.
It makes sense when you are used to it, but they do have an annoying habit of swapping the "done" and "remove" buttons.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

I've got the Edge now, buggy at first but rapidly improving, I even read pdf's with it !
I'm using bookmarks a lot, but now I am at a point that I can't find anything because there are too many of them
I agree Chrome is a nice browser but; In FireFox you can grab a tab and drag it down into the bar area or folder on the bar or whatever and it sticks. Tried with Chrome and it rips the whole page off into it's own browser window. Took me a couple of times before I figured out it wasn't going to do what I expected. So like you I asked Mr. Google and pretty much gave up. Their bookmarking sucks.
If you are over 35, you are too old for this industry. Try having fun instead of killing yourself, "trying" to keep up with those that are younger, smarter, and require less sleep then you do. Yes, we are wise, but that really doesn't mean sh*t, now does it?
