[tor-dev] UX improvement proposal #2: Encrypted bookmarks for onions

Hello George, Hello List,
I'm currently working on a Uni project where we tried to implement 3 of
the solutions suggested in the article you mentioned below. I
implemented the bookmarks idea (2.5). You can find the code here:
I implemented it as a webextension, not as part of the native bookmarks.
The entries can be exported and imported; the exported file is
aes-encrypted with a password; I used the cryptojs-library for that. The
import function has its bugs, as a webextension closes itself
automagically when another window (e.g. to select a file) is opened; I
used a workaround that's very dirty, maybe someone has a better idea?
I'd be very happy if this helped with the problem!
