Create a Dock bookmark to show all Safari bookmarks Web Browsers
This hint explains one way create a bookmark in your Dock that will bring up the All Bookmarks page in Safari. In Safari, entering the URL bookmarks:// does the same thing as pressing the Bookmarks button in the Bookmarks Bar, or selecting Bookmarks » Show All Bookmarks. Confused yet? Good! The only trouble is that LaunchServices (the program that Mac OS X uses to open URLs) doesn't know how to open the bookmarks:// protocol. So here's how to create the Dock entry and make it fully functional:
  1. Create a new Safari bookmark for the URL bookmarks://
  2. Drag this bookmark to your Dock, which will create a springy ampersand.
  3. Download and install the freeware MisFox. In the program, click the Protocol Helpers tab and press the New button. Enter the Protocol bookmarks, and for the Helper, choose /Applications/Safari.app.

    Now the Bookmarks bookmark in your Dock will open your Safari bookmarks page.

I use quicksilver for indexing my bookmarks. Much faster than having to click one manually.

'Ampersand'

The ampersand is the character '&', not '@'.... That is all.

Thank you!!! Safari already seems faster, at least with loading time--the icon bounces in the bar just once, and no crashes (would often crash just on launching). Here's crossing my fingers...
