Opening Google Bookmarks in a New Tab

i’m sure this can be done a million ways … but I just found a pattern that I consistently …

  • Open New Tab
  • Then Click Bookmark

Instead, it would be nice to just open the bookmark in a new tab window.

To encode/decode URL’s, I use this site a lot. so I have it bookmarked.

There are two tips/tricks to use, which will both open bookmarks in a new tab.

  1. CTRL+Click it (Works on Windows and Mac) – opens the shortcut in a new tab.
  2. Edit the bookmark target, with this javascript, and everytime, it’ll open in a new tab.
    javascript:( function(){‘’); } )();

Thanks to my buddy Jonathan Kressaty for the javascript snippet.
