    Google Chrome Bookmarks Menu

    Can anyone suggest an extension to get a bookmarks menu drop down like you get with IE please.
    I find it really annoying that Chrome doesn't have this build straight into the browser. The extension I was using doesn't seem to be available any more and I'm struggle to find a new decent one.

    Display the bookmarks toolbar (spanner > Settings > Click the radar for "Display the bookmarks bar")

    The Favorites folder is displayed on it. Click on it to get the drop down of all your favorites.

    Thanks both.
    Both those methods don't give you a simple button like IE does though.
    I don't like the spanner method because it requires to many clicks ( Lazy I know )
    Having the 'Display bookmarks bar' is ok..but then you have an extra bar constantly below the URL bar, which takes up viewing space ..

    Yeh I know.. I'm awkward. I like the simple way IE has of accessing bookmarks, and the Chrome extension I had did exactly the same, but now it's not available and was hoping someone knew of a similar extension.

    How about having your bookmarks on the bookmarks bar organised into folders one click access

    *edit*

    Or just type part of the bookmark in the url bar and it autocompletes
