Christoph hat sich einen kleinen Spaß erlaubt und ein Bookmarklet gebaut, das bei Klick alle Bilder auf einer Webseite in schwarzweiß mit ordentlich Körnung verwandelt. So ein Bengel!


Ben Callahan:

This repo is an experiment in responsive retrofitting. It’s a positive response to more negative (but still much needed) critiques of the mobile web like Brad Frost’s WTF Mobile Web.

This is fun. So what this little bookmarklet does is, it injects a meta tag in the head of website and applies a css file if one exists for the current page which makes the site responsive. At the moment there are only a few stylesheets but anybody can contribute to the project.

Some time ago I started making responsive because I couldn’t and still can’t understand why John hasn’t done it yet. This isn’t necessary anymore, Ben did it.

Yeah, this project won’t make the web responsive and you always have to click the bookmarklet in order to make the site you are looking at behave bette, but it’s a nice way to practice your responsive development skills and after you did it you could tell the site owner about it and mybe he’ll implement the CSS.

Responsive Websites are the future and it’s good to raise attention for that.

The new bookmarklet

Yesterday we released a new version of the bookmarklet. It looks better, gives more information about the article you are going to recommend and generally behaves more like the rest of In the future it’ll also give you the ability to read an article now or later and even send it to your Kindle.

To use the all new bookmarklet you don’t need to do anything. Just use it like before, it’s automatically updates to the newest version.

Snoopy | View-source bookmarklet for iPad, iPhone and other mobile devices

Mark Perkins:

Snoopy is a bookmarklet for snooping on web pages. It’s intended for use on mobile browsers (such as Mobile Safari on the iPad) where you can’t view-source to poke around under the hood of sites to see how they’re built. You might find it useful for your desktop browser, too.

Ebenfalls ein Bookmarklet, dass den Quellcode anzeigt. Es verhält sich etwas anders als das vorhin vorgestellte und bietet dabei noch ein paar Infos auf einen Blick, wie zum Beispiel den verwendeten Doctype oder die eingebundenen Javascript Bibliotheken. Ich behalte mal beide Bookmarklets. Danke für diesen Tip, Daniel.

View source on the iPad and iPhone

Ole Michelsen:

As a web developer I’m frequently looking at the source code of various websites. Lately my new iPad has become my primary tool for surfing and reading documentation, but alas it completely lacks a view source feature.

Also hat der gute Mann einfach mal ein Bookmarklet gebaut, dass den Quellcode ausliest und ihn sogar auch noch hübsch darstellt. Ich find’s großartig. Vielen Dank Ole Michelsen.

Sagt „Hallo“ zum neuen Bookmarklet. Bald in euren Settings.

Firebug im Internet Explorer, WTF!


For each distribution channel you can install Firebug Lite using three different ways:
Bookmarklet – a small bookmarklet to easily install Firebug Lite on any web page.
Live Link – a link to a copy of the application hosted in our servers.
Local Link – a link to a local copy of the application hosted in your server.

WOOOOOAAAAH. Mein Leben wurde gerade um 1000% verbessert. @n3rdig eröffnete mir, dass man Firebug Lite als Javascript Bookmarklet anlegen und damit im Internet Explorer nutzen kann. Eine neue Waffe im Kampf gegen den IE. Wie kann es sein, dass ich bis eben nicht davon wusste?
