Since its inception on 2nd September 2008, Google Chrome made its way to the top beating its competitors Firefox and Explorer. As of 2020, Chrome has 2.65 billion users. Not surprisingly, its features are comfortable in many ways. One of the user-friendly features of Chrome is Bookmarking.
What is a Bookmark on Chrome?
A bookmark on Chrome is a shortcut to your favourite web page. Any page that you like to read or would want to revisit in the future, you can save as a bookmark. At the end of the page URL, you find a Star mark. Just click, it and voila, you have just bookmarked the corresponding web page.
How many bookmarks can you make on Chrome?
Theoretically, there is no limit on the number of bookmarks you can make on Chrome. This is a comfortable feature to save our favourite pages and revisit them later. However, beyond a certain limit, the bookmarks tend to be messy. We feel like deleting them all and starting from scratch.
Note: Deletion of bookmark on Chrome is an irreversible process. Chrome does not alert you when you choose to delete the bookmark. Thus, you should be careful when you are deleting bookmarks on Chrome.
Here are some ways to delete bookmarks on Chrome:
