Goal: create a single bookmark you can store on your personal toolbar that allows you to access several bookmarklets. This will allow you to quickly make several bookmarklets available while you temporarily use another computer or another browser. It's also one way to keep a large number of bookmarklets on your personal toolbar, although creating folders on your personal toolbar is more efficient.
As an approximation, I created a small page (remotePageLinks.html) containing several bookmarklets as links, and put a <base target="receiver"> in the page. Then, I wrote a bookmarklet that sets the name of its window to "receiver" and opens remotePageLinks.html in a new window. Here's the bookmarklet:
Note that because the script is loaded from my site every time you use the remote bookmarklet, it's not very fast.
Thanks to Daniel Schwartz for the idea of storing several bookmarklets as one "remote control" bookmarklet.
