This is a list of bookmarklets that stupifies me:

I made a bookmarklet a few years ago that resized your window to various popular screen sizes for quickly and easily testing how layouts will look on blind people's monitors.

These bookmarklets, however, accomplish the impossible, the wicked, the wickedly impossible, and then they get down to business and do things that will REALLY make you poop your pampers.

It's like walking through a snooty neighborhood with your own 400lb go-to guy. You can cruise around the web and change anything you want; and everyone's to afraid to say anything.

Cruising and don't like their banner ads? Poof, no banner ads anywhere. Third party Iframes, embeds, plugins? Vanish like smoke in the wind. Don't want them saving your cookes? Presto, all cookies saved anywhere from a domain gone in a keystroke (instead of drilling into browser preferences somewhere).

Want to pause, rewind, fast forward, or even shuttle arbitrary flash movies on your favorite cartoon website? Wham-o, VCR controls!

color links based on whether they are in-site, off-site, or same-page. Make a page's target anchor tags magically appear. Convert a page into a topigraphical map describing it's block layout. Defeat every no-rightclick, no-select, disabled form field etc trick in the book. Sort HTML tables alphabetically!

Pop open a window and dictate any JS commands or CSS styles you'd like to apply to a page.. in real time! (no apply button even)

It just goes on and on and on.....

Take back the web! It's you're web :)

Sometimes I think you're too smart for me. Although your headline on this post certainly doesn't make it appear that way. But then the post had to be all smarty-pants!!

If I was so smart I would blog more than once a month wouldn't I ;)
