Although browser extensions add a lot of functionality, they can slow down both startup and page loading. As a result, I tend to run very few extensions - an ad blocker, Flash and Silverlight, and that's about it (Java is installed but usually turned off). So I don't have access to a lot of the functionality extensions offer. Enter bookmarklets. They're a lot like extensions, but you only load them when you need them, by clicking on a bookmark. They are just bits of Javascript code that runs in place on the page you're viewing, and can be used to clean formatting and many other things. This page is an outline of bookmarklets with links to useful lists.
