There are many incredibly useful bookmarklets at the sites listed below:
I have started working on a few of my own. They aren't completely debugged yet,
but I'm working on them. If they're useful to you, go ahead and grab a copy by
dragging the link to your browser's links bar.
Search bookmarkets can be made pretty easily for sites with search forms by either

Browser Buttons or by using the
Bookmarklets: Make Search Bookmarklet.

- AddALL book search and price comparison
AddALL is a great site that lets you search many online bookstores at once
and compare and pick the best total price from those that carry the book you want. These
bookmarklets attempt to make nice little selection searches so that you can select a
title, author or ISBN on a web page and do a quick search.
- Mozilla / Netscape 6.x/7.x versions (based on google button)
- MSIE versions (based on google button)
- The versions based on the google button code are nice since they'll popup a
dialog if you don't have anything selected. Enter text in the dialog.
- Note: If you look at the form code at AddALL or
AddALL: Link to Us,
you can learn the query parameters to add to specify default shipping destination,
state and currency to display in. Just add those arguments to the url string
For example: &location=10000&state=MD&dispCurr=USD
- It's also easy to make versions that query the
AddALL Used and Out of Print book search.
- The version based on "Make Search Bookmarklet" has some problems for
me. Don't rely on it quite yet.

The Bible Gateway
Do passage and keyword lookups. See

Feel free to use or modify these. Since I merely modified other code for new
searches, they certainly aren't copyrighted to me or anything. FWIW, AddAll support knows
about these and they like them.
