Bookmarklet


Recently when I was surfing the net I saw this word ”bookmarklet” I was confused what is this so as every one does I searched in Wikipedia to find what it is. A bookmarklet is nothing but combination of “bookmark+applet”.

The definition given in Wikipedia is

A bookmarklet is an applet, a small computer application, stored as the URL of a bookmark in a web browser or as a hyperlink on a web page. The term is a portmanteau of the terms bookmark and applet. Whether bookmarklet utilities are stored as bookmarks or hyperlinks, they are designed to add one-click functionality to a browser or web page. When clicked, a bookmarklet performs some function, one of a wide variety such as a search query or data extraction. Usually the applet is a JavaScript program.

So there was a bookmarklet in wordpress called “press this” which allows users to  you grab bits of the web.Using “Press This “ one can  clip text, images and videos from any web page. one can edit and add more straight from wordpress  saving or publish it in a post on your blog.
