Bookmarks Tagging

This repository contains the source code of a Chrome extension which allows you to manage your bookmarks with tags instead of folders. You can package it as a Chrome extension or run it standalone as a website. You can also download the extension from the Chrome Web Store.


It's hosted here. However, the Web version has some missing functionality due to the security permission in Chrome.
