Mmm, I see, you are leaving... you are preparing your seeker's rough sack... don't
forget the bookmarklets he.
Just wait a moment,
you HAVE TO head
before adventuring further alone on the deep deep web...
searching MUCH more effectively during your long travels on the wide and deep (and nasty) web.
Easy to store (just simple bookmarks, duh) Powerful (you will be amazed)
Portable (upload regularly your bookmars somewhere: "File --> Import & Export --> Export Opera bookmarks"
and then download them wherever you are
"File --> Import & Export --> Import Opera bookmarks").
(Of course you can also always bookmark (or remember) this very page
and then 'load' the following useful bookmaklets on the fly)
(Ancient seekers' proverb)
in a bookmark
which can be saved and used the same way you use your normal favourites or bookmarks.
They have some POWERFUL advantages vis-à-vis full-fledged software applications:
1) You don't need to install any software whatsoever
(advantage coz that could easily be some dangerous malware)
3) Bookmaklets allow you to both easily modify how you will see your target's webpages (for instance in
what language), and
search more quickly (for instance repeating a given search using another search engine).
They say each seeker has his own special collection of powerful 'killer' bookmarklets,
and while this is probably true, a
'common set' of powerful (if maybe simple) bookmarklets could still be useful for all my readers.
I have recognized the due provenience (and given kudos) everytime I could ascertain it.
I didn't bother giving credit when the bookmarklet is
available on the web under
a zillion different (and at times quite unlikely) paternities. But I'm ready to be corrected if needs be.
Please do, pray, note that bookmarlets are bookmarks (duh). Hence
in order to work they must first be bookmarked! (Rightclick on the link and chose
It would definitely be a rather good idea to organize your bookmarklets.
Create a subdirectory "bookmarlets" among your bookmarks. Name it for instance _bookmarklets (with underscore) in
order to have it alphabetically prominent at the top of your long list of bookmarks. Subdivide
into sub-subdirectories if necessary (for instance 'linguistic', 'searching' and so on).
Be organized, young seeker!
You'll suddendly need that darn, almost forgotten,
bookmarklet, and you'll better be able to quickly find where the helicon you did put it.
To make the bookmarklets work on pages throughout the www, right-click on the links below and choose Bookmark link, or
Add to Favorites, or whatever, from the pop-up menu (or the equivalent on non-Windows machines).
You can also directly drag the link into your "Bookmarks", "Links bar" or
"Favorites" menu. When and if a security question pops up, simply answer 'Yes'.
The code is then integrated in your browser. Now, wherever you are on the web, you can use the bookmarklets simply
clicking on them.
This page's purpose
is to give you a starting kit of useful bookmarklets and allow you to easily win your future web battles :-)
Your contributions are of course both needed and encouraged, dear lazy ones...
Transfer search (search with one engine and use same query with another one). You have to 1)bookmark these bookmarklets; 2) search first
with one search engine! (I took part of the following
taken from the web at large)
