Is there a Google Chrome equivalent to Firefox microsummary bookmarks?

(If there isn't one already I'm guessing it should be possible to automate turning them into Chrome extensions, although the summary would have to be in a popup from a Browser Action icon.)

Update: to be specific, I want something to replace my Stackoverflow microsummaries; I'm not talking about the RSS live titles bookmarks.

  • Given that Chrome 4 should natively support Greasemonkey, it shouldn't be to hard to create something like this

The new version of chrome, 4.0 supports Extensions. Try the Feedly extension, which is a glorified RSS reader, based off your Google reader feeds (not bookmarks, sorry). You can switch to the List view, which gives you one-line bookmarks with a summary, ie a micro summary.

It's quickly accessible from your toolbar, too.

  • It's microsummaries, not RSS live titles that I want to convert.

  • No there is no Chrome equivalent yet.

  • I did end up doing this in an extension. So this was the best solution. And writing chrome extensions was a lot easier (and more fun) than I was expecting.
