    How can I generate an automatically styled bookmarks.html file?

    You know how when you export your browser bookmarks to an html file and it looks like this: https://imgpile.com/images/NeiEnG.png

    Well, is there any way I could create a css style sheet (or any other preexisting external page with some kind of styling code) on my computer that would reference the generated bookmarks.html page and automatically style it without changing the code in the bookmarks.html page? So that when I opened the bookmarks.html page in my browser it had maybe a black background and white text links instead of a white background and blue text links? Or the links were positioned differently on the page? Just some basic alterations to the style.

    Thanks for any help. Will check back here regularly for any replies.

    Edit: I've been doing some research and I'm wondering if it's possible for me to call a .json file with links to an html page and display the links?

    Chrome. CTRL+SHIFT+O, or chrome://bookmarks/ . Go to the Organize menu (3 vertical dots) in the top right corner, select Export bookmarks. Firefox also does it.

    Pretty much all the main browsers do this.

    oh, the bookmark "manager".

    It's just one of those things I never use.

    There must be a Chrome extension for bookmark manager that allows different 'themes' (in the chrome webstore)?
