iPhone JAVA programs:bookmarklets

Necessity is the mother of invention.

Here is the explanation by Steve Kangas.
Many can be used with Safari.
Let us know which are your favorites. SV

How do they work?
Each bookmarklet is a tiny program (a JavaScript application) contained in a bookmark (the URL is a "javascript:" URL) which can be saved and used the same way you use normal bookmarks. The idea was suggested in the Netscape JavaScript Guide.

JavaScript has been used by page authors on millions of webpages; Bookmarklets allow anybody to use JavaScript - on whatever page you choose (not just your own page).

Bookmarklets are simple tools that extend the surf and search capabilities of Netscape and Explorer web browsers.

Bookmarklets are free.

Bookmarklets allow you to:

* Modify the way you see someone else's webpage.
* Extract data from a webpage.
* Search more quickly, and in ways not possible with a search engine.
* Navigate in new ways.

...and more. Over 150 bookmarklets are available.

Bookmarklets work on all platforms (Windows, Macintosh, Unix,...)

You do not have to download or install software to use Bookmarklets.
