If you've used them once you'll never be able to work without them. Bookmarklets (or Favelets) are tiny Javascript-Snippets, which are stored within a bookmark and add particular functionalities to the browser you're using. It doesn't matter whether you browse, bookmark, look up, search, design or program - depending on your interests, bookmarklets can significantly enhance your efficiency and productivity. However, if you take a look around, you'll find hundreds of sites, which offer favelets of any possible kinds.

What you eventually are interested in, is a hand-picked choice of the most useful snippets you can directly copy and use from one single page.
