Can anyone help, I am using the following for adding a bookmark to IE and Firefox but its not working in Chrome and I don't get my error msg saying not supported either..

Anybody know of a good script to support ALL browsers or at least to come back and tell me its not supported, I have access to jQuery - maybe there is some way to detect the browser

I am currently using this and it works for IE and Firefox but not chrome

if (window.sidebar) { // Mozilla Firefox
window.sidebar.addPanel(name, url, );
else if (window.external) { // IE
window.external.AddFavorite(url, name);
else if (window.opera && window.print) {
window.external.AddFavorite(url, name);
else {
alert('not supported');

Sorry, but there's no cross-browser way to do this. Your FF example is broken as well: It won't create a regular bookmark, but a bookmark set to be opened in the sidebar. You'd have to use the bookmark-service to create an actual bookmark, but this'll fail due to security restrictions.
