Bookmarklets and Ipod Touch/Iphone

Safari bookmarklets could make your information retrieval a lot easier when using Ipod Touch or Iphone. A bookmarklet is an applet, a small computer application, stored as the URL of a bookmark in a web browser or as a hyperlink on a web page. The term is a portmanteau of the terms bookmark and applet.

Whether bookmarklet utilities are stored as bookmarks or hyperlinks, they are designed to add one-click functionality to a browser or web page. When clicked, a bookmarklet performs some function, one of a wide variety such as a search query or data extraction. Usually the applet is a JavaScript program.

Here is some links to actual bookmarklets and the topic:
