I am currently running Chrome 11. I have been trying to figure out how to add a bookmarklet (which should be dead simple) and it's driving me crazy. This is the site I'm trying to drag the bookmarklet from

First off it seems there is no such thing as the bookmark bar anymore (or I just can't find it for some odd reason) so there is no where to really drag a bookmarklet. The bookmarks page opens as a new tab, so there isn't really any dragging option there.

Then even if I wanted to use the bookmarklet, there is no bookmarks drop down from a page tab, I always have to open a new page so there is no context to run the bookmarklet in.

I'm not a big fan of how Chrome is doing bookmarks now as it really puts them out of the way and requires more clicks than before. Does anyone have the flow that works for what I'm trying to do?

There is a bookmark bar, you just have to go to "View" and then click "Always Show Bookmarks Bar". You can also use Control+Shift+B.

There is no 'View' in Chrome 11 – Scott May 7 '11 at 21:43
@Scott: Try Control+Shift+B – Wuffers May 7 '11 at 21:45
that worked. I wish the Chrome team wouldn't hide more features behind commands. I really hate that the bookmarks are now on a bookmark page too. – Scott May 9 '11 at 21:54

On the bookmark bar far left you will see the small globe next to the new tab. Right click it. the drop down will then have the option to add a page.
