Bookmarklets

I use a variety of bookmarklets that make life easier.

Bookmarklets are little pieces of javascript that you can apparently drag to your browser’s toolbar.

These days, I’m using Chrome because I heard that Safari has some security vulnerabilities.

So, I’ve re-installed all my bookmarklets and realized they were hard to find.

To keep from losing them again, I’m listing them here:

WordPress “Press This” Bookmarklet – available from your “Tools” page (e.g.,

https://mountainsol.wordpress.com/wp-admin/tools.php)

Press This is a bookmarklet: a little app that runs in your browser and lets you grab bits of the web.

Use Press This to clip text, images and videos from any web page. Then edit and add more straight from Press This before you save or publish it in a post on your site.

Twitter Share Bookmarklet:

I don’t use this a lot because I tend to post things in Google + if I want them to go to twitter. I have a IFTT setup for syncrhonizing G+, Twitter, and Facebook to publish in that direction.

About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
