You can now add most of my bookmarklets at once if you use Internet Explorer or Mozilla.

New bookmarklet:

I also made some improvements to test styles. It used to only work in Mozilla, but now it works in Mozilla, Opera 7, and maybe IE 5.5 (but not IE 6.0). It now works correctly on XHTML pages in Mozilla. I also moved the test for window.closed inside a try..catch block, because at some point since I wrote the original test styles, Mozilla restricted window.closed to same-origin.

Validation Web Development

I made some more changes to the ancestors bookmarklet while I was working on computed styles. First, I made it go all the way to the root of the document, and in the process fixed the bug that it didn't show the id and class attributes of the BODY element. Second, I fixed two compatibility bugs. The bookmarklet now works in old versions of Mozilla (185889), thanks to Stuart Langridge, and now works with XMLDocuments in all versions of Mozilla, thanks to Jacques Distler.

Created this page (news.html) and the bookmarklets-announce list. This entry and earlier entries were not actually sent to the list because the list didn't exist.

New version of the JavaScript Shell (0.7) and the shell bookmarklet.

March 23, 2003

Added a feature to the ancestors bookmarklet: show IDs and classes along with tag names. So on mpt's blog,

BODY > DIV > DIV > DL > DD > P

now appears as

BODY > DIV#wrapper > DIV#content > DL > DD.newsItemDescription > P

This isn't really a bookmarklet, but fans of the zap plugins bookmarklet may find it useful. XBL in User Style Sheets: Hide Flash but make it available with one click on the placeholder.

Lots of new bookmarklets. My favorites are in bold.

Page Links Forms Text and data Zap Web development Validation Misc Keyword bookmarklets for scripters (new section)

Since I like ancestors a lot, I'm going to continue thinking about new uses for the status bar. Ideas? (Other bookmarklets that use the status bar: highlight for status and number of matches, allow no option for instructions, onerror status for script errors.)
