Bookmarklets

Small and Light Javascripts As Bookmarks.

Bookmarklets are lightweight javascripts stored as a bookmark in a browser. You can use them as custom-made tools to streamline your browsing experience. For example, instead of opening up a new browser window, navigating to answers.com and manually searching for a word, you can simply highlight the word in your current page and click your bookmarklet; it’ll do the rest for you.

Below is a collection I find most useful. You may drag the link to your bookmarks menu to use later and even modify them to your liking. Click the individual links to see them in action.

Neat?
I think so.

Reference Bookmarklets

These will look up a highlighted word or prompt you to input one:

* Safari user: mouse-over a word while holding Ctr+Cmd+D for its definition.
