I’ve come late to the game of public — or “social” — bookmarking using Delicious, but it’s so freaking useful. Instead of adding a bookmark to Safari or Firefox, I post it to Delicious, where I can tag it with multiple categories, and share it. A friend and I are planning a trip, so as I collect relevant pages, I can save them on Delicious, tag ’em with “triptowherever”, and then me and my pal can always go to http://delicious.com/jjmarcus/triptowherever to see what each other has found.
(I should mention that I do use some fantastic Safari extensions such as SafariStand and Inquisitor; find a full list at PimpMySafari. But I digress…)
In this post, I’m going to forego writing instructions for creating bookmarklets, but I will list the ones I have found useful so far. PimpMySafari has a long list of these, too.
Here are mine (the links contain the code):
- Spreeder.com: Speed-read with spreeder
- Evernote.com: Clip to Evernote
- Post images from Flickr to Facebook (iPhoto ’09 makes this less necessary).
- Bookmark on Delicious.
- RemembertheMilk.com: Add to Remember the Milk
I put them all in a folder in my Bookmarks Bar, for quick access.
