Why Google has done this, I don't know, but you can check how the ...

From what I know and have found in the past, it's impossible to completely remove the embedded bookmarks bar from the New Tab page.

My issue was that despite deleting the favicon for a locally hosted site, Chrome still displayed it. This comment on a Chromium issue says: Favicons are not stored in the cache, they're stored in one of the SQLite databases. So they don't get cleared with the cache. This is a good thing since all your bookmarks would lose their icons until you visited ...

This feature is built into the address bar. All you need to do is type a +, a Space, and then each tag, separated by a Space.

But the exported data will contain the relations between the tabs (what ...

If you don't mind an alternative solution, what you mentioned looks a lot like custom search engines on Chrome. Look here And this is something I did using custom search engines. Using Omnibox and the multiple search engines provided by Chrome, you can add, for example a custom one for the ArchWiki (If it wasn't added automatically), just like the one in ...

With the advent of Firefox Quantum (v57+), which uses the new Web Extensions API, most of the previously suggested plugins no longer work. However this one - the Bookmarks Manager and Viewer - does appear to work so it is possible to both search for folder names and see the folder location of a particular bookmark. Also there's a long standing bug report/...

You can however install browser extensions which replace the NTP, and the replacements do not automatically get the bookmarks bar (but can with some extra programming). So for instance Google's Earth View extension does not show bookmarks, whereas ...

Try control + Shift + B, which hides bookmark bar when any website is opened and only shows in a new tab or home page.
