- (newtab) -- The title of the page with some bookmarklet examples is purposely short so it takes up little space on a browser tab
My own addition for use on newtab pages or home pages or speed-dial pages consisting of thumbnails. A page of many organized links such as this is easier to access frequently referenced pages anywhere from home, or mobile devices, or any computer. Easier than working from a page of most used bookmarks or history even if on my own computer. Page has a demonstration area for bookmarklets on the page. If you want to bookmark that page with a different title use the "rename:" bookmarklet included within.
How to install Bookmarklets:
- You can drag a bookmarklet to your bookmarks toolbar, menus, bookmark folders.
- You can import a bookmarks.html Netscape styled bookmarks listing used to transfer bookmarks from one browser to another. On desktop they will be added to the bottom. On Android devices they will probably replace what you have and the import may be listed as restore.
- Typically on Android unless you synchronize with your desktop browser(s), you would want to install them in the Default browser.
Where to get more Bookmarklets:
- Jesse's Bookmarklets Site (Jesse Ruderman)
Has a number of categorized bookmarklet pages
- Firefox Keyword Shortcuts (onsite)
- Bookmarks (about 1,544 bookmarks and bookmarklets that I share with others)
- Most of the bookmarks from the above and related webpages without extension Firefox related links, will work on Firefox desktop and Firefox android but not in other android browsers
- About 80 bookmarks modified for Android that will work on both android and desktop browsers, includes some bookmarks with Firefox substitutions (%s, %S) that only work on Firefox desktop that were modified to only use prompt. You can test some of them within their web page, similar to the demo area in first link on this page.

Additional Android Browser APPs / Tools and Browser information:
With over 5,000 bookmarks in my desktop Firefox browser, I am not about to risk loss or damage by synchronizing them with other browsers or with Android browsers. The Android version of Firefox is useless, Dolphin is the best, for me, on my Android 2.3.4 and I don't see switching to or using Google Chrome on any platform regardless of its apparent popularity.
