What it does

Displays a simple button in the menu bar that toggles a bookmark for the currently active tab.

To display the button, the extension registers a browserAction in the manifest.

A background script will listen for tab events and update the browserAction icon correspondingly. It also listens for browserAction.onClicked events to create or remove a bookmark when the user has clicked the icon.
