Keywords for bookmarklets

20080114499

Bookmarklets are fun. They can make pages readable, help solve browser rendering issues, keep URLs sorted and so on. Except developers always suggest dragging the bookmarklet link to your bookmark bar. Link bar? Who uses those? Mouse to navigate? I thought that’s what keyboards were for.

Snarkiness aside, Firefox lets you assign keywords to bookmarks.* This was first touted as as a means to create custom searches in combination with the %s replace character in a url string, however it works without that portion as well as. And it works for running bookmarklets. No cluttered, pixel wasting linkbars. Nomousing around bookmark lists. Alt+d -> m -> return and the page I’m currently browsing is bookemarked in Magnolia.
