If you are used to working with a desktop, you are probably familiar with desktop icons, docks, or launchers. On the other hand, we are more used to typing URLs in browsers to get to a website. But if you want to bring the elegance of launchers to your browser, then you should check out SiteLauncher. This extension for Google Chrome allows you to organize your favorite websites seamlessly.

Like any good Chrome extension, Sitelauncher sits on your Chrome’s address bar in a non-obtrusive manner. Press CTRL + Space to open the launcher, and then click an icon or press a shortcut to open a website. Adding shortcuts is easy as opening the launcher and clicking “Shortcut Current Page”. You can also add shortcuts to open websites without going through the SiteLauncher panel. For example, pressing Ctrl + Space + F will send you to Facebook.

    Nice one! A couple of shortcomings: 1. limited entries in each folder - once you reach 6 it starts another column 2. DO NOT change the name "SiteLauncher" as it automatically detects this and re-installs the original set of Bookmarks. Also would be nice to change the shape of the opened window.
