In addition to @asif-mistry's answer, the two are different feature-wise :
tags v folder
Google Bookmarks use tags, meaning that a SINGLE bookmark can be tagged with multiple tags.
Chrome Bookmarks uses folder, a bookmark can only exist in a single folder when you add it to bookmark (you can copy it manually in Bookmark Manager though)
Just pushed an initial Google Bookmarks import support. Export your Google Bookmarks (to a GoogleBookmarks.html file), and import that with Kifi's importer.
Several bookmark services use a fairly certain standard for tags/labels/collections, which we support. Unfortunately, Google Bookmarks does it a bit different and duplicates links for every "label".
Google Bookmarks search cannot exclude "all other labels". You can refine your searches multiple times by adding -label:whatever to your original query label:MyBookmarkList.
Nonetheless, there are a few caveats to bookmark management:
You can't perform batch operations on bookmarks
Labels remain in your list as long as there's at least 1 tagged bookmark....
If you are using Google's Chrome browser, or Firefox (optionally with the awesome Omnibar add-on), you will get direct suggestions from your history/bookmarks, if you search from the browser's address bar.
The matching is based on keywords -and optionally bookmark tags-, but I am not sure if the results (= suggestions) are prioritized on their type.
I used the Delicious Exporter to Chrome extension.
It basically creates a Delicious folder in your Google Chrome bookmarks with all your tags nested under it. Is not super-usable but the import works like a charm.
Right click a tab, then click, "Bookmark all tabs" this can also be done with the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + D on Windows.
This will open up a prompt asking you where to save the bookmarks, you can choose a folder or create a new one from this prompt.
As a Firefox fanboy and bookmark packrat, I find browser integration for my bookmarks is a critical feature.
From the URL bar I can search bookmarks. Or instantly create one (using the star icon). Or re-file the current page under a different tag.
I assume Chrome appears to have feature parity with Firefox. Barring the lack of tags. And the obvious ...
Chrome bookmarks has many features
(i) Chrome has feature like sign-in for browser user so if you signing in, all the bookmarks would be fetched irrespective of the machine.
(ii) You can also export the bookmark to other browser
so chrome bookmark is superior than Google bookmarks
Google bookmarks is a web app feature of Google which allows you to store your bookmarks on the Google server using your Gmail account.
Google Chrome Bookmarks is a Chrome feature which works in same way as bookmarks work in a major web browser.
Answer to your questions
No, Google bookmarks service is still useful as you can still use it.
This is currently not possible in Google Bookmarks.
The quickest method would be the following:
At the bottom of the Google Bookmarks page you can click "manage labels" and than "rename" your existing tag.
After you have done that, find your new tag on the very left. Click it to get a list of your bookmarks labeled with this tag and than manually add your ...
Consider a cloud-based bookmarking platform that operates through a website instead of a Chrome extension. With a cloud solution there's also no need to backup or sync your bookmarks because they are automatically backed up and inherently synched, and all your bookmarks are always available using any browser from any computer, mobile phone or tablet. You can ...
(The OP placed the solution in the question. Here it is as an answer.)
The answer here is that the autocomplete has been turned off.
In Chrome: Hit F12. ( Or go to Wrench, Tools, Developer Tools. ) Search for autocomplete Change "off" to "on". Close the developer window. ( I had to double-click the "off" to edit it.) back to the bookmarklet, and labels ...
Here is undocumented method to extract all the metadata, including labels, for your Google Bookmarks:
Simply fetch this URL, which generates XML of your first 10000 bookmarks:
This is what the first part of the file looks like:
For non-Google Chrome users, here is a procedure for Windows 7:
Click on START and then click on your user name to access the Favorites list in your user folder.
Open the Favorites folder and sort it alphabetically.
Create a new folder using a name that will get it to the top of your Favorites list.
Copy the sorted Favorites list into your new folder. The ...
