Steve writes about some of his favorite Web 2.0 bookmarklets – my picks:
Amazon This – pops up a little window, enter a term and it will run your search through on Amazon
Convert Me – takes any YouTube video and converts it into another downloadable format using Zamzar.
Edit in Picnik – pushes a web page’s images into Picnik where you can edit and save it
I also prefer to use GMail This! and Blog This! (source code) for writing quick emails and blogging respectively.
"Installation of a bookmarklet" is performed by creating a new named bookmark in the toolbar, following the browser’s procedure, and pasting the code into the URL destination field. Alternatively, the bookmarklet can be accessed as a regular bookmark.
