Comment on Google Chrome’s awful new bookmark manager (and how to switch it off) by JC http://blog.garethjmsaunders.co.uk/2015/04/19/google-chromes-awful-new-bookmark-manager-and-how-to-switch-it-off/comment-page-2/#comment-255333 Thu, 28 May 2015 18:04:09 +0000 http://blog.garethjmsaunders.co.uk/?p=5605#comment-255333 Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!! How could anyone possibly think that eliminating fundamental browser functionality would be a good idea?

Having spent the last several years dealing with the implementation of Google (mail, docs, apps, etc.) into the enterprise I’ve learned that Google isn’t all too concerned about functionality. They’ve never expressed to us an attitude of “users first”, quite the contrary.

This isn’t to say that there aren’t cool things in Google’s products, just that they seem to think that serving the needs/wants of their customers is oxymoronic and everybody should just learn to deal with whatever they happen to throw over the fence. You should hear our in-house developers complaining about having to re-do code every time there’s a minor change to Chrome, Google Apps, etc. It’s always a mad scramble restoring functionality.

Anyway, sorry for the rant. Thanks again for this awesome tip!

I did not really mind the look, but if you have a lot of bookmarks you can’t see them all and it just looks a mess. Not productive!

I found your suggested fix and it worked:))) Thank you!!! Shame on Google –

Comment on Write! (beta) — a distraction-free text editor for Windows by Torsten http://blog.garethjmsaunders.co.uk/2015/03/07/write-beta-a-distraction-free-text-editor-for-windows/comment-page-1/#comment-255274 Wed, 27 May 2015 13:30:13 +0000 http://blog.garethjmsaunders.co.uk/?p=5527#comment-255274 Thank you for this interesting article. I had not heard about Write! before.

I am searching for a textile editor which is a native Windows application. There are several very good Markdown editors available, but none for Textile, as it seems.

Write! looks promising at first sight, but I miss the (rendered) preview and the export to HTML. And there are no options for font size, font family, background color and something like that.

I know, it is Beta software, and so we can hope for more features in future releases.

Second; this is REALLY awful. You can’t drag folders or re-arrange bookmarks. It is also very unreliable in actually bookmarking pages. Worst new feature in Chrome for a long time.

I just spent the last two hours – trying to organize my folders in the new bookmark manger, accidentally deleting ALL my bookmarks (how, I have no clue, as I only selected one folder to delete – I thought!), then spending an hour (and panic!!) trying to figure out how to recover said bookmarks, which I did! THEN, I found the page on how to disable this new, horrible UI!!! Truly awful UI!! Thank you for spreading the hate on this one!! I’m so glad I could go back to the older UI, with the folder view, which I am MUCH more comfortable with. Gaaa! Very annoying and a huge waste of time for me. Thank you Google for completely stressing me out and taking away several hours from my life.
