Finally have the right combo of extensions where I can hide my bookmarks bar in Chrome.
Another really nice feature of Chrome is that it shows your bookmarks bar on the new tab page since there is so much unused room there. No need to have it showing all the time, taking up browsing real estate, with the right combo of extensions replacing bookmarklets.
The pin tab option in Chrome is great. If you want to perma-pin your tabs, instructions are here.
How did you get your bookmarks bar to show on the same row as your address bar? I assume it automatically makes the address box smaller as you add bookmarks.
