Holmes Review

Got bunch of bookmarks in Chrome? Never find the bookmark you're looking for?

Holmes is here to search for your bookmarks!

Omnibox integration is back!
You users missed Watson so bad so we thought to bring him back! And he is faster than ever!

As always, you find him from url bar. Just type * and press tab and you're ready to search!

Holmes also activates by keyboard shortcut! Press Alt+Shift+H and you're ready to go! You can always change the shortcut for your liking. Go to Chrome Menu > Tools > Extensions. Scroll down to bottom, press "Keyboard shortcuts" link and add custom shortcut to Holmes!
