'BMarks Bar - Chrome' Adds a Customizable Bookmarks Bar to Google Chrome for iOS
Google Chrome for iOS turned out to be a very popular Web browser for iOS users, and Google continues to bring great updates to it adding new features. On the other hand, perhaps not enough features.
The jailbreak community has come up with another fancy add-on for the iOS version of Google Chrome. Dubbed BMarks Bar – Chrome by iOS developer William V., this new jailbreak tweak adds a bookmarks bar to the top of the application under the URL unibar, as shown above.
The bookmarks bar will show Web sites that you have saved as bookmarks, and you will see the name of the site, as well as an icon for the site. At the far right, you will see a folder for other bookmarks that aren’t listed in the bookmarks bar. You can tap on the folder to expand it and see more bookmarks. Tapping on bookmarks on the bookmarks bar will open the respective Web sites.
BMarks Bar - Chrome has a preferences pane that is located in the Settings application where you can configure the bar's appearance in the Google Chrome application:
You will be able to configure options such as the bar height and bookmark width, the text size, folder width and height, icon size, and more. You will also be able to choose if the other bookmarks folder shows or hides, as well as enable or disable panning to select bookmarks.
BMarks Bar - Chrome is a nice add-on for Google Chrome lovers because it offers quicker desktop-like access to your bookmarks right on your iOS device.
If you would like to give it a shot, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for just $1. The tweak will work with iOS devices running iOS 6.0 or later. You must have Google Chrome installed on your iOS device to use this tweak. You can download the latest version of Google Chrome for iOS for free from the App Store via this link.

This makes me wish I was still jailbroken. This would be really useful on the iPad.
