The Bookmarklet

A bookmarklet is a special kind of bookmark. Normal bookmarks take you to another page when they are selected. Bookmarklets simply make changes to the page you are currently viewing, rather than taking you to a new one.

The Golimojo bookmarklet can be used to add links directly to the page you're currently viewing. Once you've installed the bookmarklet this is as simple as choosing it from your Bookmarks or Favorites menu.

Installing the Bookmarklet

Bookmarks are called favorites in Internet Explorer, where they're accessed through the Favorites menu.

Installing the bookmarklet is easy.

  1. Right-click (Ctrl-click on the Macintosh) the bookmarklet link in the box below. This will bring up the context menu.
  2. From the context menu you want to select Bookmark this Link... (Firefox) or Add to Favorites... (Internet Explorer).
  3. Click OK in the dialog box.

Using the Bookmarklet

If you open the Bookmarks or Favorites menu in your browser, you should see the Golimojo Bookmarklet. To invoke the bookmarklet on whatever page you are currently viewing just select it from the menu. You may want to try it out on this page, although the results may not be very interesting.
