Until today (actually, tomorrow) I’ve made bookmarklets as alert/confirm-boxes with plain JS. Why on earth did I not use
- it will be updated upon each request, no need for clients to update the actual bookmark
- it’s styled
- it could be used with external JS-libraries
Doh… at least someone will be happy tomorrow at work :)
Inspiration for this post: the Delicious plugin for Firefox; but first and foremost, the tumblr-bookmarklet which is REALLY elegant.
