How to Save Your Bookmarks as Favicons In Chrome

Chrome’s bookmarks toolbar makes navigating to your favorite web sites quick and easy. But space is at a premium on your toolbar. As you fill it up, your other bookmarks are place under the expand icon in the right corner of the screen. Once a bookmark falls there, you’re more likely to forget about it.

The goal is to get as many bookmarks situated prominently on the visual portion of the bookmarks toolbar as possible. The best way to do that is to delete your bookmarks’ names and instead save them as favicons.
