Great video, and I learned some new things. However, I have more than a few bookmarks, in folders, and when I go save a bookmark, via command-d or share --> Add bookmark, it uncollapses every folder making it difficult to travel through the tree-like folder structure to save the bookmark. Is there some way around this? That is, to keep what the side-bar does and only open a folder as I go?

Hi David, I see what you mean. In your case, it's probably easier to open the sidebar, then drag the URL from the Search bar to the folder that you want to place it it. That way no folders are opened and you can see a 'compressed" view in the sidebar.
