Bookmarklets

Bookmarklets are small pieces of code that can be bookmarked and stored along with the rest of your bookmarks. Upon clicking the bookmark, the code get's executed.

To learn more about bookmarklets, go to bookmarklets.com or to Jesse's Bookmarklets Site.

In this page I've put some usability related bookmarks that I wrote:
Fit-Large-Images: Fit large images to window and allow to toggle their size by clicking on each image.
In-Page-Bookmarks: Let's you add an index to any page you're surfing.
Auto-Highlight: Highlight a section of the screen in light yellow while following the mouse.


Fit large images to page (IE+Firefox)

2007-10-05

Usefull at forums etc. Will fit all images wider than 600 pixels to window width - 300 pixels. Once the bookmarklet have been clicked: Just drag and drop this link: |<-IMG->| to your Bookmarks/Links toolbar or click it to try now on this page (you might want to resize the window to make it narrower first).

In-Page-Bookmarks Bookmarklet

2004-01-14

It was tested on mozilla firebird nightly on windows, Mozilla 1.5 and k-meleon. should work on all gecko based browsers. (it does NOT currently work for IE).

This bookmarklet allow to add bookmarks INSIDE the current page. it will create an index at the top-right corner of the browser. clicking "Add" will let you enter a title for the current page position. if a text is selected on the page, it will be the default title (and the 'jump' will be more accurate).

The bookmarklet toggles the visibility of the in-page-bookmarks area. so, when you don't need it anymore, just click the bookmarklet again (on the bookmarks toolbar folder). to make it visible again (with your index) click it again.

The index will be lost when you leave the page, however if you save the file to the HD while it's visible, your index will stay there ;) (if you load a file with pre-made index, you'll have to click the bookmarklet button again to be able to add more elements)).

Tip

If you want to add index to text files (RFCs anyone?) you'll have to add <pre> tag just at the start of the text file, and save it with html extension (YES, mozilla still detects the type of the file by it's extension!!)


just drag and drop this: IPBv0.31 (In-Page-Bookmarks) to your bookmarks toolbar folder.

here's how it looks:




Auto-Highlight Bookmarklet

2004-01-12

It was tested on mozilla firebird nightly on windows, Mozilla 1.5 and k-meleon. should work on all gecko based browsers. (it does NOT currently work for IE).

Auto-Highlight highlights an area of the screen just below the mouse cursor (full width, 100 pixels high) in light yellow. it follows the mose as it moves.
It's supposed to give better focus on the text while reading.
It might also be helpfull as a teaching aid.
It has a bug that's causing it NOT to be able to click on any link on the page ;). HOWEVER, the bookmarklet toggles the auto-highlight feature. so, when you don't need it anymore, just click the bookmarklet again (on the bookmarks toolbar folder).

just drag and drop this: AH (Auto-Highlight) to your bookmarks toolbar folder, and enjoy ;)
here's how it looks:
