Nice! I haven't known about that.

No, but I know what are you talking about. Squarefree.com choose a dozen of bookmarklets from its collection that could be helpful when browsing porn sites, and coled this new collection "Pornzilla". It's at squarefree.com/pornzilla/ I think this project is mostly for laughs, though.

Those 10 bookmarklets are not associated with squarefree.com in any way, BTW.

This basically seems like a simplified Google Toolbar.

You can add bookmarklet style buttons to Google toolbar as well (for example I frequently use the Add to Google Reader button). Google toolbar buttons can be found at: google.com/ig/directory?synd=t ...

Another useful feature of Firefox is quick searches. Right click on any bookmark and add something to the keyword field. You can then type this into the address bar and go straight there. It also allows you one parameter: "%s".

I, for example, have search within this domain bookmarked with keyword "d" as:
javascript:document.location.h ref=' google.com/search?q=site:'+doc ... ref.split('/')[2]+' '+escape('%s');*

I can then type "d search term" (without quotes) and %s is replaced with "search term".

It's really useful, and I've set them up for several search engines:
Google: google.com/search?q=%s
Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special: ...
last.fm: last.fm/explore/search/?q=%s
Metacritic: metacritic.com/search/process? ...

You can also add these by right clicking on any search field and selecting "Add a Keyword for this search" (try on the name field below).

*remove the space in "h ref", it's blocked here.

You can also use www.jsquickmark.com, if you don't want to open a new window (this bookmarklet open a little box in a page that you are seeing)

Doesn't Google Reader have an official "Add to Reader" bookmarklet, as well? Or is it the same as the "unofficial" one?

Yes they do have an add to reader bookmarklet.

Here it is: googlereader.blogspot.com/2005 ...

I should pay more attention, it took me an hour to make my ;) The only difference is that the official one doesn't allow you to choose between iGoogle/Google Reader.

James – you dragged the image from the website, not the bookmarklet. A little weird, but try one more time, this time dragging the text.

Tried again. Still doesn't work. The same for Yahoo and others

If anyone has found a toolbar button which can email the current webpage you are on, by opening up a gmail with the link already in the subject, I'd simply love to find it. The bookmarklet is awesome, but I need it as a toolbar button. How the heck didn't Google think of this a YEAR AGO? The "Send To" button is a frigging disaster, it takes about 30 minutes for it to work, because it tries to actually copy the entire page, video ads and all, and paste it into the subject line, instead of a simple link (too logical for Google?)

Also, I've been wanting a toolbar button for Google reader forever. This bookmarklet is perfect, now how do I get it into the google toolbar (not the bookmarks for my browsers, I've already done that).

Google should already have buttons for most of this stuff, the fact that they don't (or I can't find it by searching for "send it" "send it with Gmail" or "gmail" in toolbar button search) is just really pigeon-headed of them.

Anyone finding google toolbar buttons that do this kind of stuff, please tell me. SteadfastJack[put at-character here]gmail.com
Thanks.

It would also be nice if blogs offered a way for you to see if people respond to your posts. It's not like I'm ever going to remember to come back to this site 3 days from now to see if some one answered my plea. Am I the only asswipe that hits blogs by random chance, rather than reading them religiously?

There is official "Google Bookmarks" bookmarklet here: google.com/bookmarks

[put at-character here]J.: I've been using this extension: lazyrussian.com/email-this-fir ... for sending only the link in your email. Subject line will be the "title" of the page and the link will show up in the body of your email. Hope this helps.

J., I made this little bookmarklet for send a mail with gmail:

javascript:(function(w,h){
var t=encodeURIComponent(document.title),
l=encodeURIComponent(document.location),
s='https:// mail.google.com/mail?view=cm&tf=0&su='+t+'&body='+l,o = open(s,'','resizable=1,scrollbars=1,width='+w+',height='+h);
if(window.focus&&o)o.focus();})(600,600)

Based on that site (www.jsquickmark.com). Just create a new bookmark and copy/paste that code in the location field.

Like pacificdave, 'Subject line will be the "title" of the page and the link will show up in the body of your email."

Ops! This site "ate" some of the code.

Here's that same code in a page:
jsquickmark.com/bookmarklet.ht ...
