    Anyone know of any widgets that act like a floating action button to open bookmarks in chrome? Or is this functionality hiding somewhere?

    In the chrome menu there is an "add to home screen" that adds a shortcut to the current page. Is that what you meant?

    Kind of... But rather than adding one bookmark to the homescreen I want to add an icon that brings up a list of all my bookmarks.

    Actually there IS a widget for bookmarks now. Scrollable and resizeable. Still not exactly what I want but this is better than nothing.

    You could use the pop-up widget app to make the widget pop up when you press an icon.

    Do you have a link to the pop-up widget app? That's exactly what I want!

    Oh, you don't even need the second app. Make the widget in the pop-up app and press it, and I gets added to the home screen.

    Hey Rob. I believe you would want to try Flynx app from the Play store. Please give it a try and let me know if this is what you are searching for. Hope this helps!
