Google Bookmarklet Reference

I use Google Chrome as much as I can, and thus, I have to use the wonderful bookmarklets in order to do some tasks that aren’t yet built-in as they should be especially the Google Bookmark Bookmarklets. I do get frustrated when I can’t find the ones I use in one single place so here is a reference for meee … and by extension, youuu …

Just add the links to your “bookmark bar” and be happy…
(WordPress is not allowing me to generate links to “javascript:” references, thus I cannot make draggable links) soo … Select the code, drag it to the “bookmarks bar” then rename it to your liking.

Add Google Bookmark

javascript:(function(){var a=window, b=document, c=encodeURIComponent, d=a.open("http://www.google.com/bookmarks/mark?op=edit&output=popup&bkmk="+c(b.location)+"&title="+c(b.title), "bkmk_popup", "left="+((a.screenX||a.screenLeft)+10)+", top="+((a.screenY||a.screenTop)+10)+", height=420px, width=550px, resizable=1, alwaysRaised=1");a.setTimeout(function(){d.focus()}, 300)})();

View Google Bookmark

javascript:(function(){var a=window, b=document, c=encodeURIComponent, d=a.open("http://www.google.com/bookmarks/", "bkmk_popup", "left="+((a.screenX||a.screenLeft)+10)+", top="+((a.screenY||a.screenTop)+10)+", height=420px, width=550px, resizable=1, alwaysRaised=1"); a.setTimeout(function(){d.focus()}, 300)})(); 

Scroll

javascript:var one,two=new Function('clearTimeout(one)'); document.onkeydown=two; two(); void(one=setInterval('if( pageYOffset<document.height-innerHeight) {window.scrollBy(0,1)} else{two}',50));

KeepVid

javascript:window.location.href = 'http://keepvid.com/?url=' + window.location.href;

BlackOnWhite

javascript: (function(){ var newSS, styles='* { background: white ! important; color: black !important } :link, :link * { color: #0000EE !important } :visited, :visited * { color: #551A8B !important }'; if(document.createStyleSheet) { document.createStyleSheet("javascript:'"+styles+"'"); } else { newSS=document.createElement('link'); newSS.rel='stylesheet'; newSS.href='data:text/css,'+escape(styles); document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(newSS); } } )();

Gmail

javascript:var%20w=window, u='https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2& view=cm& fs=1& tf=1', l=document.location; try{%20throw(0); %20}%20catch(z)%20{a%20=function(){if(!w.open(u, 't', 'toolbar=0, resizable=0, status=1, width=600, height=500'))l.href=u; }; if(/Firefox/.test(navigator.userAgent))setTimeout(a, 0); else%20a(); }void(0)

IE AJAX NULL or Undefined Problem

Problem: While developing a javaScript AJAX based Web App. with an on load call for getElementByID document.getElementById(...) is null or not an object error message is received in IE, IE7 while Firefox worked, meaning the “ID” is there but “IE” is messing up.

Solution: Place the javaScript call at the end of the HTML document to ensure all elements load before the code executes.

Low Volume Output Problem

Problem: Laptop/Desktop has too low audio output even when all the audio settings are maximised.

Solution:

1 – Utilize Secret Volume Boost

VLC: hit “Control + Up Arrow” (Hit Up Arrow while holding down Control)

Quicktime: “Shift + Click Volume Slider” or “Shift + Up Arrow”

2 – Purchase external speakers

I found a great portable option at ROSS. $14, 85 DB, Works with DC or 4 AA
