chrome.bookmarks.update does not allow changing the URL

Project Member Reported by, Feb 6 2010

Issue description

chrome.bookmarks.update only allows changing the title of a bookmark. I need 
to be able to change the URL as well.

Comment 1 by, Feb 6 2010

Scott, there is a TODO(sky) in bookmarks_util that we should add SetURL. Is there a 
reason why this was never done (besides lack of time)?

Comment 2 by, Feb 8 2010

Only lack of time. See 10603.

The following revision refers to this bug: 

r38555 | | 2010-02-09 17:00:29 -0800 (Tue, 09 Feb 2010) | 8 lines
Changed paths:

Make it so that chrome.bookmarks.update can update the URL of a bookmark.

This changes the API slightly. Previously, if someone called update with an empty object ({}) it would set the title to "". This was only documented in the code and not on the API page. Now that we support updating both the url and title it seems more reasonable to ignore a missing title.
