Bookmarklets

I recently discovered bookmarklets. What are they? Small sections of JavaScript that you can use as a bookmark (or favorite). There are all kinds of bookmarklets around and if you know how to code JavaScript you can even create your own. What are some of the things they can do? Help you search faster, calculate or convert figures, view web pages differently (like change the font or background color)… the possibilities are endless.

I have a bookmarklet parked on my personal toolbar to search Google, which I use all the time. You can find a copy of it (tailored for your browser) here. The Bookmarklets Home Page also has quite a few more to get you started.
