Browser Bookmark Bar Icons

Does your Internet Bookmark Bar look like this:

Before Browser Bar

Did you know that you could make it less cluttered by just showing the website icons? How about transforming it to this:

Browser After

This is very easy to do and to me seems very practical. Having a small bookmark bar can make it a lot less distraction. Chances are you know the sites that the above icons go to.

Chrome Modification

  • Simply right click on any icon in the Bookmark Bar and select "Edit' from the menu.
  • Remove the text in the Name Field.
  • Click Save

Firefox Modification

  • Simply right click on any icon in the Bookmark Bar and select "Properties' from the menu.
  • Remove the text in the Name Field.
  • Click Save

Safari Modification

This won't work in Apple's Safari as Apple doesn't show the Favicon in the book

At the End of the Day...

This is a good way to have more websites visible in the bookmark bar. I have learned that while it make take time to familiarize yourself with the various icons, it does make the bookmark bar look cleaner.
