Google Stars leak reveals a new way to share and search your bookmarks

Google+ expert Florian Kiersch recently revealed that Google's testing a bookmarking app called "Stars," and just posted a video (embedded below) showing how it might work. The initial leak exposed certain features, like "starring" web pages from Chrome's address bar, organizing them by folder and searching content within the pages. Those searches would use suggestions and auto-complete like Chrome, displaying the results in an "image-rich grid." Now, a splash screen (above) has confirmed much of that. Kirsch's demo shows how you'd organize folders and set them to "public" for anyone to see or keep them confined to your Google+ Circles. Stars may arrive in the future as an app or extension on Chrome and would probably be embedded in other Google apps too -- assuming it survives the beta.
