What’s new in version 0.0.14?

                Whenever you get too many bookmarks and folders it's becoming really annoying to find the one you're looking for. That's why I made this extension - to make it simple!

Now you can simply click the logo of the extension (after installed), and start typing until you find your bookmark and click it. This is also available by a shortcut - cmd+E (Mac)/ctrl+W (Windows/Linux).

Although there are other similar extensions out there, I couldn't find at the time anyone that searches according to the folder(s) name as well. Likewise, all extensions I found, search by URL as well, which I find faulty. So they search by name and URL, while I search by name and folder(s) name.

And on top of that I added some cool features I found really helpful:
- Search by multiple words or partial words separated by spaces.
- When there are no results the search algorithm collapses and starts searching by letters instead of words, a search which easily overcomes typos.
- For every bookmark, a dedicated (technical) shortcut is calculated (and shown to the right of the every result), with the shortest length possible, and also by a priority which is based on how close are the keyboard keys to each other. Type a shortcut to get its bookmark as the first result on the search, so you can then simply press enter to open it. 

The suggested shortcut to show the search popup is cmd+E (Mac)/ctrl+W (Windows).
If you're having issues with this shortcut, please try reinstalling the extension.
If you want to change the shortcut, go to chrome://extensions/shortcuts and set a shortcut for "Bookmarks Quick Search".

To make the search faster - make sure the extension is pinned to show always on the top menu-bar.

Enjoy :)

- Fix google autocomplete here and there appearance on the search box.
- Support JS-Script bookmarks as well.

- Fix slow load of icons - now it's instant.

- Highlight query in results.

- Allow more animation frames for a smoother look and feel.

- Fix chrome's shortcut.

- Query match highlighting is brown (was magenta)
- Remove support of bookmarklets (due to chrome restrictions)
- Full code refactor to allow better maintenance in the future

- Improve performance

Unfortunately doesn't work well anymore, the shortcut CMD + E doesn't trigger the extension. As the developer suggested, to make it work with the latest versions of Chrome is necessary to set up manually in the Chrome config the shortcut. However, the trigger isn't responsive as before and the experience it's pretty laggish...

This is a great Extension. Ever since upgrading to Chrome 108.0.5359.124, the CMD + E shortcut no longer works. Can this be looked into please?
