Bookmarklets for this century

2004-08-30 21:05 - Web

Bookmarklets are not a new thing. The basic concept is that modern browsers have the ability to run a whole programming language (JavaScript) inside them, and that you can trigger little JavaScript programs to run by clicking on a link. Like a bookmark. So you can keep little scripts in your bookmarks and fire them up whenever you find them useful.

But, there's a site out now that has some really really amazing bookmarlets around. It's called Jesse's Bookmarklets Site. I'm quite impressed by the zap plugins, force wrap, edit styles, go to referer, and up bookmarklets. And more. If you are a tech head, and even if not, these things can make browsing the web way better!

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.

If you are attempting to contact me, ask me a question, etc, please send me a message through the contact form rather than posting a comment here. Thank you. (If you post a comment anyway when it should be a message to me, I'll probably just delete your comment. I don't like clutter.)
