An object containing some combination of the following fields:

index Optional

An integer Number which specifies the position at which to place the new bookmark under its parent. A value of 0 will put it at the top of the list.

parentId Optional

A string which indicates the ID of the parent folder into which to place the new bookmark or bookmark folder. On Chrome and Firefox, the default is the "Other Bookmarks" folder on the Bookmarks menu.

title Optional

A string which specifies the title for the bookmark or the name of the folder to be created. If this isn't specified, the title is "".

type Optional

A bookmarks.BookmarkTreeNodeType object indicating whether this is a bookmark, a folder, or a separator. Defaults to "bookmark" unless url is omitted, in which case it defaults to "folder".

url Optional

string. A string which specifies the URL of the page to bookmark. If this is omitted or is null, a folder is created instead of a bookmark.
