Hide Multiple Browsers Bookmarks

Sometimes I like to showcase how a website looks in Chrome and Firefox. I usually hide the Bookmark bar so that it's less distraction to the screenshot.

I made this process easier by creating a Keyboard Maestro macro to hide both browser's bookmark toolbars at the same time.

Using Keyboard Maestro, I set up a Macro so that I could close both Chrome and Firefox Bookmarks at the same time.

Some Notes on the Macro

I used a weird keyboard combination to open/close the bookmark bar. If I need to do this a lot, I'll change up the shortcut to something a bit more reasonable.

When I execute the command a second time, both bookmark toolbars are visible.

I can easily change this to support other browsers, such as Omni, Safari and Maxthon.

The commands execute almost simultaneously and it doesn't matter which browser I have currently focused.
