Amazon bookmarklets that work in Safari | September 4, 2003

I created a couple of simple bookmarklets/favelets tonight to search for books and other products on Amazon. There are a few similar bookmarklets around but I couldn't find any that worked in Safari so decided to knock some up myself. I'm always checking things out on Amazon so thought somebody else may find them useful as well.

To install the bookmarklets simply drag them to your bookmarks toolbar or Links bar.

To use them just highlight some text on a page, then click on the bookmarklet to search for that text on Amazon. Simple as that!

So far I've only tested these bookmarklets/favelets on Safari so I'd be really grateful if people could try them out on other browsers and let me know if they work.

They continue to work in the current unreleased version of Safari. Plus, I found them quite useful. Thanks.
