They're not exactly classy, but they're there for us when we need them. Heck, they even follow us from device to device with browsers like Chrome.

Well, Google's looking to finally breathe a little more life and color into boring old bookmarks with Stars bookmarking manager. It's by no means a finished product, but it's certainly a step forward.

Let's take a look.

15

If you happen to be using Yo for some insane reason, we've just been informed that you won't be getting any "Yos" on December 24th or 25th. Nope, instead, to celebrate the Christmas holiday, you'll get similarly-vague "Ho Ho Ho" alerts instead. At press time we were unable to clarify if Santa Claus himself will be leaving monosyllabic push notifications under the tree this year.
