Some of you switching from the default Chrome new tab page to Momentum may be missing your bookmarks bar. Fear not, we’ve now added this feature to Momentum. You can now import your existing Chrome bookmarks and view them within Momentum by enabling the Bookmarks Bar!
We’ve also added a bunch of customization options and some long-awaited updates to the Links widget.
Go to Settings > Links > Show Bookmarks Bar to get started.
See your Most Visited sites
You can now default your bookmarks bar to show your Most Visited sites. You can also navigate between Most Visited and Bookmarks as needed.
Choose Start in Most Visited in Links settings to enable it.
Clear the clutter
For a cleaner bookmark view, you can choose to hide the bookmark titles and just see the icon. This option also lets you fit more bookmarks in the bar.
Select Show icons only in the Links settings to try it out.

What’s the difference between Links and Bookmarks?
In short, Links are connected to your Momentum account, your bookmarks are connected to your Google account. The Links widget was initially developed as a Momentum substitute for the missing bookmarks bar. This widget lets you add, edit, and access your favorite site links from a dropdown list on your dashboard.
Choose the links or bookmark option that works best for you.
