Bookmark Sentry looks awesome! – cregox Mar 23 '11 at 23:00
Neither worked for me. AM-Deadlink locked my machine before it ran. Bookmark Sentry ran to completion and only needed to delete the duplicates it found ... but then locked my machine. Sad programming. They must work for some folks because I've seen good reviews, but they certainly don't work like all the other software I have. – user83561 May 30 '11 at 2:41
man all those sucks i guess time to make my own ultimate bookmark manager that has common sense. – Muhammad Umer Sep 1 '13 at 2:22

SuperSorter is a nice Chrome extension that seems to do the job. It's still in beta, but the removal of duplicates seems to work just fine.

Bookmark Sentry and Super Sorter both do work, BUT the chrome bookmarks API gives them a quota for changes and as of july 2012, neither extension catches the errors when they exceed their quota for deleting duplicate (or reordering in the case of super sorter) bookmarks.

You can let super sorter run in the background (enable auto mode) and it will do a bunch of retries over time, and that may work around the quota issues with a string of partial successes... My experience, though, has been that chrome sync keeps disconnecting my browser when i make too many changes.

So the issue is not just deleting the duplicate bookmarks, it's removing them from your synced chrome browser state, which is a bit more complicated because the sync algorithm doesn't like so much change all at once.
