bookmarklets are smart links: instead of pointing to pages, it runs simple scripts. Used wisely, it’s a huge timesaver.
to use it, simply drag the titles to your bookmarks bar.
Composes an email with the info of the page you’re currently browsing: subject is the page title, body is page title + link. A godsend.
It breaks if the title uses ampersand.
Same as above, but as a popup to your twitter post page. Link is minified automatically. You gotta be logged in tho.
Opens a query popup, you type your term and it builds a spezify moodboard for you. Good for quick inspiration needs or if you wanna check art/fashion/design terms.
Cleans cluttered article pages: just the content, please.
That’s for webdesigners: It allows you to click on page elements and give you info about it (classes, etc). Good for reverse engineering.
PS: Safari has a nifty keyboard shortcut: command/control + 1 opens the first link, command/control + 2 opens the second, etc. If you keep same order it makes life even easier.
Firefox works differently: you can setup keywords under link properties (option/right-click), and if you type it on the address bar and hit enter, it opens the link.
You can either click on each link to subscribe, visit the site or download the complete OPML file and drag it to iTunes to subscribe to all. you can delete later the ones you don’t care about.

I’m moving my podcast subscriptions from my macbook air to my modbook, so below I listed all podcast I listen/watch. Some guidelines/clarifications:
- It’s all free (it should go without saying, but some people don’t get it yet, so again: All podcasts are free)
- If not noted, it’s an iTunes link
- If there’s no iTunes link it’s a direct subscription link
- If there’s an HD version, I choose this one (hence, no iPhone sync)
- YouTube videos are converted using YTPodcaster
- I do have time coz I watch no TV. I have no TV.
