I maintain a page at o.yeswap.com containing dozens of tested mobile bookmarklets and instructions for using them. Today I added a couple of new bookmarklets to the page:
Zap Cookies – Delete all cookies associated with the current domain.
Page Rank – Display current domain’s Google Page Rank using checkpr.mobi
The bookmarklets page has been around for three years and some link rot seems to have set in. I went through and tested all the bookmarklets and found quite a few that no longer worked. I was able to fix the following ones:
Top – Go to top level of current site
Add to Gbookmarks – Add current page to Google Bookmarks
Stumble It – Recommend current page at Stumble Upon.
gCache – View Google’s cached version of the current page – This should work
Others I couldn’t fix, in most cases because the cloud service they linked to no longer exists. The following bookmarklets were unfixable for the reasons noted and have been deleted:
Quick del.icio.us – Post Post the current page to del.icio.us with no tags but no form to fill out either. – Broken by a Delicious API change, use the Post To Delicious bookmarklet instead.
Post to Ma.gnolia.com – Add the current page to del.icio.us competitor, Ma.gnolia.com. – Magnolia has shut down
Post to :bMarks – Add the current page to :bMarks.mobi, another mobile social bookmarking site – :bMarks has shut down
Short :bMarks – A shorter :bMarks bookmarklet url for phones, like many Motorolas, that can’t handle long urls – :bMarks has shut down
Technorati This – Search the Mobile Edition of Technorati for Blog posts referencing the current page – Technorati has eliminated their search by URL service.
Copy Page Text – Displays the current page’s text in editable text boxes for copying and pasting using Menneisyys’s copy/paste tool. – Menneisyys’s site is down
Copy Page Text – Alternate version of Menneisyys’s copy/paste tool with one 2000 byte block per page for browsers that can’t handle large pages. – Menneisyys’s site is down
Opera Mini 5 has some bugs that can corrupt bookmarklets. See Problems With Bookmarklets in Opera Mini 5 Beta 2 for a explanation and workarounds.
