A week of tagging for Chrome bookmarks in the wild…

Le Tags has been out in the public eye for a week now and I really appreciate the feedback I’ve received so far.  I wasn’t sure what the response would be honestly so happy to see that it has been as positive as it has been!  There isn’t a method in the Chrome webstore (extension gallery) for me to respond to reviews other than just editing the description so I’ll make use of this blog and hope some people get a chance to see it…

@eliasp – The problem you ran into with the notification on the addition of a bookmark was new to me. I wonder if it is due to Chrome 11 vs. 12? Either way, I think I need to redesign the bookmark add popup so that instead of an “alert” box informing of an add it is just a change of the code in the page itself. I’d also like to add a cancel button to the window since I think it is more intuitive than just clicking elsewhere to close it. In my first implementation I was going for an automatic close after the bookmark was saved but for some reason setTimeout() was being ignored by Chrome and I had to go the route I did here in the first draft. Regarding your usability and design suggestions, I’m on board with you there… Definitely needs work in some of those areas! I hope to make some improvements in the next couple of weeks…

@anonymous – Regarding importing bookmarks & tag data from other browsers, I think the most likely target will need to be Firefox first. I haven’t quite figured out the best way to go about it yet… since Chrome has some native import functionality I’m thinking maybe having Chrome import it first and then matching the tags in a secondary process would be best but it might be better to one-shot it somehow. This might be out a bit as a function pending some usability issues first but is an important enhancement I think.

@sfera & @deascx – Your point on the newtab page is a tricky one. I’m still scratching my head on this one. The Chrome API doesn’t let me duplicate the “most-visited” sites that is in the default page and I’m hoping that a future chrome release will make that possible. It’s a cool aspect that I like a lot!

I’d like some feedback on colors, etc. How do you feel about the blues? Would gray or white be better or too stark? You can respond in comments or through the contact form on the about page… Thanks for checking out Le Tags!



One thought on “A week of tagging for Chrome bookmarks in the wild…”

  1. Hi. I really like this idea especially when I got thousands of bookmarks and sometimes I just forgot where I put it at.

    Here got some feedback after use :
    1. Make tag colorable & searchable
    2. Make hide & show for folders (I got too much folders so it take my space)
    3. drag & drop the tag to bookmark is a good idea I saw on your chrome extenstion page suggested by others. and I also want & would pay for it.
    4. sync it to any LeTag installed chrome.

    I can pay for this service because it really help me on.

    Hope these wish list can be implement soon. thanks for your great work
