Google is reportedly testing a new bookmarking tool that will allow users to add web objects such as images, web pages, videos, etc. in a searchable index arranged in a grid.

The tool will be called “Stars” and whose code was originally called Google Collections. According to the code of Stars, the tool will be able to keep starred items private unless the user opts to make them public. Stars can also be sorted into groups with “areas” capable of being dragged and dropped into a collection.

According to the report, the short term goal for Google Stars would include bookmarking images, websites and videos. But thinking of long term plans, the search giant might include map locations, emails, Google+ pages and even Drive documents into the mix.

With Google’s annual developer conference on the way, there’s a probability that Google Stars might make a debut at the event, so we might have to wait until the last week of June for confirmation and clarification about this project.
