Is there a way (built-in or through a third-party extension) to do a fuzzy find on my Chrome bookmarks and their folders? I've been able to come pretty close with just the bookmarks, but it is limited to be unable to include parts of the folder tree in the search.

Seems like a simple need, but I've been unable to find any solution.

1. Using The Atomic Bookmarks Extension To View & Search Chrome Bookmarks By Folder

Atomic Bookmarks is a simple extension that lets you search within folders. From the list of bookmarks it displays in a popup, you can select which folders you want to search in. Here’s how to use it:

2. Using EveryMark To Bookmark Instantly, Search Within Folders & Delete Bookmarks

EveryMark is an extension that intends to respond as effectively as desktop-file-searching software Everything (which you don’t really have to even install). It displays your bookmarks in a nice popup just like Atomic Bookmarks but it offers additional features that Atomic doesn’t.

Thanks for the suggestions. Atomic Bookmarks 2 gets pretty close, though it's search isn't "fuzzy" or nested per se. However, it's sufficient for my needs. Thanks again. –  user72923 Dec 5 '13 at 16:38

Use the Vimium extension.

Vimium is a Chrome extension that provides keyboard-based navigation and control in the spirit of the Vim editor.

Shift+B lets you fuzzy search bookmarks. This doesn't work on a blank tab and on the occasional webpage (mostly pages like gmail).

Vimium looks awesome, but the fuzzy bookmark search appears to only work for the names of the bookmarks and does not seem to include bookmark folders. –  user72923 Jan 17 '13 at 20:35
