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...

Bookmarklet lets you destroy Web pages one element at a time, Asteroids style!

AdBlock is so lame. I mean, all it does it prevent ads from being displayed on Web pages. Where's the sport? Where are the explosions? I want some satisfaction from my advert eradication! Satisfaction like the kind you can only find in vintage arcade games. Thankfully there's this incredibly practical bookmarklet that turns any website into a search-and-destroy mission. Click your button,...

Marklets.com may be the last bookmarklet you'll ever need

As a website, marklets.com offers up a vast library of bookmarklets, much in the same way that userscripts.org does for user scripts. But marklets.com has a serious ace up its sleeve: its very own bookmarklet. Drag it onto your bookmarks bar, click it, and you'll get a pop-up bookmarklet search prompt. Type in what you want to do (for example, "PDF"), hit Enter (no "live search" while typing),...

Firefox Friday Four

Here at the Download Squad Bungalow we're still brainstorming new and fancy ideas for our Chrome Corner and Firefox Friday columns. Until then, you get your usual installment of (four!) awesome Firefox facts, features and newsy tidbits! I should lead with the biggest news from the week: 1. Mozilla releases Gecko 1.9.3 alpha 1 developer preview I'm trying to work out exactly what this...

Quix adds tons of useful functions to your browser via a single bookmarklet

We've written about bookmarklets plenty of times before here on Download Squad. They're a great (nearly) zero-footprint way to add add-on or extension-style functions to your web browser. Quix is a little different than many of the marklets I'm currently using. It's a bit like the run box on your Windows computer. Click Quix on your browser's bookmarks toolbar and an entry box appears -- into...

15+ great Google Chrome extensions

We've already mentioned other ways to power up Google Chrome. Before extensions arrived on the developer channel, Userscripts and bookmarklets were your only options. Both are still great ways to add some kick-ass functionality to Chrome. If you're running the stable or beta builds, you may want to stick to them for now. 10 handy Userscripts for Google Chrome users 15+ handy bookmarklets...

PBtweet powers up your Twitter web experience on Google Chrome

Google Chrome has had Userscripts support for a long time. Unfortunately, a lot of the really great Userscripts are designed with Greasemonkey for Firefox in mind, meaning you miss out if you're using Chrome. PBtweet, on the other hand, works just fine in webkit-based browsers like Chrome and Safari and it brings a more powerful interface to Twitter's web client. Save that script into your...

DLS 101 - Bookmarklets aka favelets

"Daddy, what's a bookmarklet?" A childish question, perhaps, but not a question a child might ask. The kid might also call them favelets if he was raised on a diet of Internet Explorer. A bookmarklet, or favelet comes from "bookmarks" and "favorites" that you would save in your browser. Bookmarklets are Javascript applications in the form of URLs, and wherever you can store a URL, you can store a...

15+ handy bookmarklets to power up any browser

Bookmarklets can be incredibly handy. If you use multiple browsers, they're a great way to ensure you don't lose any of your favorite functions when switching back and forth. Maybe your browser doesn't support extension or there aren't many in the wild for it just yet - bookmarklets can provide many of the same functions. Here are ten that I find particularly handy. If you've got a favorite, feel...

Yahoo's Delicious proves Chrome extensions are....Boring.

When I was looking over my news feeds yesterday morning, I though I had spied some exciting news. A few sites were reporting about a new Delicious extension for Chrome. Some of them trumpeted its arrival as proof that Chrome extensions were real. I found that statement a little odd, because AdSweep has been around since early April. Didn't that pretty much prove the "reality" of Chrome...

Search for useful bookmarklets with Bookmarklet Directory

There are lots of great things about bookmarklets. They're lightweight, compatible with any browser, don't require installing or restarting any apps, and they're just a click away in your bookmarks toolbar. If you're looking for some good bookmarklets, you might want to check out Bookmarklet Directory. It's a large (and growing) collection in the same vein as the Firefox add-ons directory or...

Google Chrome news roundup: Themes, Scripts, and Ad-blocking, oh my!

It's been about a week since Google launched the public beta of its open source web browser, Google Chrome. While the browser certainly ain't perfect by a long shot, it does render pages quickly and has a few innovative features like an unconventional placement for tabs and a unified search box/location bar. Over the past week there's been a flurry of activity surrounding the browser. Not from...

Mobile Minute: Get some use out of web apps for the iPhone

Apple's decision to keep 3rd party apps locked out of the iPhone (for now) is still disappointing both users and developers alike, but that doesn't mean we can't get some actual functionality out of some truly unique web apps. For this week's brief Mobile Minute, I'm going to highlight some web apps, utilities and bookmarklets designed specifically for the iPhone that are rising above the rest....

TwitThis website button and bookmarklet debuts

If there was a category we could apply to things that spread faster than wildfire, the craziness that is Twitter would likely be the first example you could use for just such a category. One only needs to check our Twitter tag to find hacks like automatically twittering your blog posts, mapping out tweets and even putting Twitter on autopilot for you. But why stop there? New TwitThis buttons and...

Top 10 Gmail tips and hacks

Gmail offers a lot of flexibility when it comes to the way you manage your email. Innovative features like labels, a dedicated mobile phone client and rich script-ability via Firefox's Greasemonkey plugin create a unique appeal for users from nearly all walks of life. Since you can do so much with and to Gmail, I thought I would round up my favorite tips and hacks for users both old and new....
