Makes "Post" forms submit to bookmarkable URLs (with ?var=value).
Turns all Post forms on a page into Get forms, allowing you to bookmark a search-results page. Try it on Merriam-Webster or everything2!
Background: There are two types of forms on the Web, Get forms and Post forms. Most search forms are Get forms, which include form data as part of the URL in a format like ?var=value. Forms that have a permanent effect, such as sending e-mail, are always Post forms. Some sites use Post forms for searches when the URL is ugly or long, which makes it difficult to bookmark the results of the search, but most of these sites also accept the same form submitted using the Get method.
Passwords: You can use this bookmarklet to store URLs with passwords as bookmarks, but if you do, you should be aware of several security issues:
Toggles the state of each checkbox on the page.
Selects the next option in each group of option buttons.
In each group of option buttons, selects the option after the previously selected one. If no option was previously selected, selects the first.
Based on a suggestion by Tim Berry (Inktomi).
Click on a selected option button to clear the selection.
Allows you to unselect an option button without selecting another option.

Makes the browser ignore web site requests to not remember passwords.
Some sites, including many banks and a few other sites such as Yahoo Mail and Microsoft Passport, tell browsers not to remember passwords for visitors using autocomplete="off". This bookmarklet makes the browser ignore autocomplete="off" temporarily, allowing you to save passwords even on sites that use autocomplete="off".
Use this bookmarklet just before submitting the form with your password in it. When you submit the form, your browser should offer to remember the password (as if the site didn't use autocomplete="off"); click "Yes". Once your browser has your password stored, it will ignore autocomplete="off", so you won't have to use the bookmarklet each time you visit the site.
Thanks to Erich Iseli for making the bookmarklet work on the Passport site.

Lets you edit textareas expecting HTML code as wysiwyg. (Mozilla)
Wysiwyg editing in web pages only works in Mozilla 1.4+ and Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1+. Some Mozilla derivatives and some unofficial Mozilla Firebird builds don't enable it.
