    Default Add bookmarks to homescreen gone?

    I use Chrome browser on my Android and I used to be able to go into my bookmarks and add a bookmark to my home screen well now I don't see that option anymore. I'm using the s3 and haven't tried it since my phone updated to 4.3 so I'm wondering did they remove it with that update or with a Chrome update or just change how it's done?

    On my S4 with 4.3, using Nova my bookmarks are listed as "Shortcuts." Dunno if that actually helps or not.

    My Nexus 5 has two widgets--"Bookmark," which is a single widget, and "Bookmarks," which is a 3x2 grid of scrollable thumbnails of your favorite bookmarks. You don't see anything like that in your Widget list?

    I use nova also. Where is it listed as shortcuts? Are you using the stock browser or Chrome?

    Chrome. I just long tap on an empty spot on a home screen and then choose "Shortcuts" from the "Add to Home screen" menu. One of the shortcuts is "Bookmark" which lets me select which bookmark to add.
