Kindlebility sends Web pages from your computer to your Kindle

Kindlebility is a bookmarklet that can send any Web page you're viewing to your Kindle. Kindlebility will format the websites so that viewing them on the Kindle isn't a pain. Once you've set it up (more on that in a moment), Kindlebility only requires one click to use -- and the pages arrive on your Kindle in seconds. Before you use Kindlebility for the first time, you have to quickly set it...

Relive the ugly years of the Web with IE6ify bookmarklet

People often forget just how much of a monopolistic juggernaut Microsoft once was: Internet Explorer 6, at its peak in 2004, thanks to its bundling with Windows XP, was used by almost 90% of Web surfers. Then a little miracle happened: Firefox 1 launched and IE has lost market share ever since. Today, just 12% of Internet surfers still use IE6 -- mostly thanks to China, South Korea and other...

CueThat for Netflix adds movies to your queue while you surf

CueThat is a slick little browser add-on that lets you add any movie you happen upon while browsing the Web to your Netflix queue. Just highlight a title, right click and choose CueThat from your context menu, and voila: it's added to your list. It even works with movies that are still only screening in theaters. CueThat is offered as an extension for both Firefox and Chrome, though the...

SpellBook Google Chrome extension adds right-click access to bookmarklets

We're big users of right-click context menus, especially in our Web browsers. We also love bookmarklets -- those handy little JavaScript snippets that sit next to our normal bookmarks and provide extension-like functionality. Combine these two things, and you've got SpellBook, a new Google Chrome extension that provides right-click access to all your bookmarklets. Just install SpellBook and...

Markup.io lets you share Web pages with more than just a link

Sharing Web pages with friends usually consists of sending them a link and some sort of explanation. Markup.io is a new service that makes the process a bit more personal -- and a lot more fun. Basically, it allows you to not only share a link, but also show your friends exactly why you're sharing it, by marking the page up as though you took a sharpie to your screen. Markup.io works through a...

Notes for Later is a super-fast way to email links to yourself

The problem of "saving stuff for later reading" is a known issue, with several established solutions. You've got Read It Later, Instapaper, Delicious, Diigo (including "unread bookmarks" functionality), and a ton of other alternatives. Notes for Later differentiates itself by being super-minimalistic. Your email client is your reading list; if you use Gmail, you can just create a filter to label...

Twitter Tuesday -- Twitter becomes the last Web service to get a bookmarklet

Twitter is finally getting on board the bookmarklet bus, about a million years after every other Web service and URL shortener in the megaverse. You can now add a button to your browser's bookmarks bar that allows you to quickly shorten a URL using the little-hyped t.co shortener. Gee, I wish bit.ly would have thought of that ... oh, wait, they already did. I'm perplexed by the little ways in...

Liquid Page bookmarklet lets you visually rearrange page elements

Whether creating a whole new site or changing an existing design, you may often want to shuffle things around and test different layouts. Liquid Page is a bookmarklet that lets you do just that, on any website, right from your browser. It's as simple as it sounds: you click the bookmarklet, wait about half a second while jQuery loads, click a couple of prompts, and you're on your way. You can now...

This text-to-speech Firefox add-on works well but the bookmarklet version is even better!

Surprisingly, I don't think we've covered text-to-speech here on Download Squad before -- at least not in the browser! Perhaps that's because it's a bit chicken-and-egg: for a blind person to find out about a text-to-speech add-on, he would need the add-on. Damn paradoxes. Anyway, I had a play with two solutions today, both based on vozMe's text-to-speech API. The first is a Firefox add-on...

Like-o-matic bookmarklet adds a Facebook like button to any page -- in any browser!

Yesterday I posted a new Google Chrome extension which allows users to 'like' any page on the web using Facebook's new plugin. What with Chrome extensions being little more than JavaScript and CSS already, I didn't expect it would be long until a lightweight bookmarklet came along which does the same thing. Lo and behold, there's Like-o-matic! It's not quite as seamless as Facebook Likes, but...

Instapaper Beyond is keyboard shortcut heaven for Instapaper users

I love Instapaper, and I love keyboard shortcuts. Instapaper, if you haven't come across it, is a tool that allows you to use a special bookmarklet to mark articles online that you'd like to read later. It has a website that is optimized for reading your saved articles, as well as a very good iPhone app so you can read those articles when you're not at your computer. The website is quite good for...

KeepVid lets you download videos from popular streaming sites

It's been almost 4 years since Jordan Running first told us about KeepVid, a site that allows you to download YouTube videos for offline viewing. Since then, KeepVid has continued to evolve, now offering the ability to download from many other popular streaming video sites like Dailymotion, Metacafe, iFilm, and others. KeepVid works by using a bookmarklet on the page that is hosting the video...

Make webpages more printable with The Printliminator

The Printliminator is a bookmarklet that gets any webpage ready to print. Once it's activated, you can click on elements you don't want to print to remove them from the page. If you don't want to do it manually, you can remove all images on the page using one button. Another button applies a nice default print stylesheet. Sometimes there's only one element of a page that's worth printing, and The...

How to spell-check any web site using Firefox

Firefox includes a built-in spellchecker that lets you know when you're misspelling words in an email or other text entry box. But what if you want to spellcheck an email that's already been sent or a web site that's already been published? All you need to do is enter a little Javascript code in your URL bar or click this bookmarklet, (which you can drag and drop to your bookmarks toolbar). ...

IE6ify: a bookmarklet that breaks the web

There's a lot of rage directed at Internet Explorer 6 these days, including several very serious sites detailing the ways it's holding the web back and making designers' lives miserable. Sometimes rage isn't the best approach, though. Sometimes you need to have a sense of humor – or, if you're a designer who has to support IE6, laugh to keep from crying. That's where the IE6ify bookmarklet...
