Bookmarklets and Favelets

If you want to explore social bookmarking, you can add some bookmarklets to your browser's links bar so that with a click you can add a web page to Digg, delicious or any one of the services listed here. (A bookmarklet is a small JavaScript program placed as a bookmark in most browsers. A portmanteau of bookmark + applet and applet being a small application. Internet Explorer uses the term "favorites" instead of bookmarks, so you might see the term favelets too.)

I found this listing at and copied it over. (Luckily, "sweat of the brow" work can't be copyrighted.)

If you visit that site, you can read an explanation, but basically what it does is allow you to create bookmarklets for all these services from their site. Now, you can do that individually service by service too using the tools the service itself offers. For example, to add that bookmarklet tool for delicious if you use Firefox, go to

I imported this list not to offer the bookmarklet service, but because it's a quite a good list of social bookmarking sites. There are a number I use now (the big names mostly - Digg, delicious, Reddit, Technorati...) but also a bunch that I have never used or even seen mentioned.

Clicking any link here will take you to that site. You will need a free account to use any of these services.
