The Google Bookmark Bookmarklet

Nathan Lanier pointed me to a bookmarklet in the Google Search History. When you drag & drop this piece of JavaScript onto your browser links bar, you can bookmark any page. When you do so, you are asked to provide some tags and a description for the bookmarked page. The page will then automatically be starred and appear in your Search History (yeah, well, that doesn’t really make sense as you didn’t necessarily search for that page). You can also access only your bookmarks from the left-hand link on the Search History page.

The note you added will be visible on Google web search results as well, like here:

While the Bookmarks feature itself is a bit older, the accompanying bookmarklet seems to be new.
