List of Useful Add-Ons For Google Chrome Using Bookmarklets

by Chrome Blog on January 4, 2009

As we all know that Google took Chrome out of beta almost a month back, but still there is a strong feeling that there is a long way to go for the browser if it has to compete with other browers such as Firefox.  With the lack of RSS Support features, lack of API’s for add-ons and plugins, and no official version of the browser for Mac and Linux, it would take time before users fully switch to Google Chrome.

Although Chrome’s lacking of such basic features, its lightweight surfing, speedy browsing and easy feel has attracted a lot of people to it. Everyday more and more users are starting to use Google Chrome, though we cant say how many are using Google Chrome as a standalone browser.

Last month Google had announced its plans to release Extensions and Plugins support for Google Chrome, shortly, unfortunately, no one knows when it is going to be released now that 1 month has passed. But till then, there ways to atleast simulate the use of browser extensions. This is done using bookmarklets which are small pieces of javascript code which one can easily add to Chrome’s bookmark toolbar.

Google Chrome Bookmarklets

We have listed some of the most handy bookmarklets for Chrome which many of the users would find beneficial. You might already see many of the bookmarklets being written about in our Google Chrome Forum. We had also developed the Google Chrome Toolbar using such Bookmarklets a while back and got about 75k hits to it already.

HOW TO USE: To use the bookmarklets mentioned below,  you just need to drag & drop the link onto the bookmarks bar of your Chrome Browser.

  • Share in Google Reader – Share the web page you are browsing using Google’s RSS Reader.
  • Note This in Google Reader – It lets you share the item while adding a note with it.
  • Stumble it – Stumble a web page that you liked.
  • Gmail This – Mail any page using Gmail. For Google Apps Mail, try this instead. (You will need to replace “yourdomain.com” with your own domain name).
  • Linkify – Make all plain text URL’s on a webpage into clickable hyperlinks.
  • Take Screenshot – Takes a screenshot using WebShotsPro.
  • Socialize – Submits a blog post from Google Chrome to more than 50 social bookmarking website with just a few clicks.

    Social Google Chrome

  • Google Pagerank – Check Pagerank of any Webpage by clicking on it. This is so far the best alternative to check PR of a site untill any Google Toolbar is lauched for Chrome.
  • Translate – Translate any webpage to English without needing to know the source language.
  • Technorati Rank – Check Technorati Rank, Blog Reactions and Authority of the website you are on.
  • Twitter now – Click on it to update your Twitter account. You will get a pop-up which lets you update your twitter status &check messages.
  • Alexa Rank – Check the alexa rank of the website you are on.
  • Tumblelog – Lets you quickly post to your tumblelog if you have a Tumblr Blog.
  • Dictionary – Look up words in the dictionary. If you are a fan of Thesaurus, then use this Thesaurus. Another, similar bookmarklet called Reference is also available.
  • Post to vi.sualize.us – Post your favorite pictures to the photo-sharing website vi.sualize.us.
  • Share on FriendFeed – Share a link in social media lifestreaming site FriendFeed.
  • Digg – Diggs a webpage.
  • Google Bookmark – Bookmarks a page using Google’s own Google Bookmarks service.
  • Delicious – Save a page to social bookmarking site delicious.
  • Adblock+ – Removes java, flash, background music and third-party iframes. It won’t render properly on this page for some reason, but you can grab it from the original site.

If you would like to see any additions to this list of Bookmarlets do let us know by leaving your valuable comments.

Thanks for that mate. It has been edited now.

Hi. 🙂
Couldn’t get the “linkify” bookmarklet work. 🙁
I build some simple webpage, open it in Chrome (last version for today), press “Linkify” button and nothing happens.

Could somebody explain, how it works, please ? 🙂

Thanks in advance.

Good things, but not even close to extensions in FF 🙁 No firebug equivalent and no real del.icio.us extension (i.e. replace bookmarks with del.icio.us, ctrl+d saves to del.icio.us + local cache etc) makes Chrome a nice toy but no more. Pity, since I like the speed and simplicity.

5 Chrome 01.15.09 at 11:14 am

@Pop – well there are no plugins or extension API’s released by google for the chrome browser, and thus there is no real plugins for it. But its just a matter of time when the api’s are released and plugin developers flock to chrome.

Foxmarks missing!
I’m using it to sync my favorites… many times better than delicious.

Hello. I’m Ricardo & I have a question & a few addon suggestions…

Is this the official area to were Crome bookmarklet addons are posted or is there another area (i.e. in the Crome Forums, in an official google Crome addon page site, etc.), bigger even, to were Crome addons are listed (like Firefox’s addon page area)?


1. Tab Renamer – I would like this feature for Google Crome as it is an addon for Firefox.

2. Design Crome – I would like an addon section that has a list of color schemes addons for Google Crome (Like Firfox has).

& That’s all I can think of for now. I’ll list more when I can if I get more suggestive addons. Thank you. Have a great day & God bless 🙂 .

“2. Design Crome – I would like an addon section that has a list of color schemes addons for Google Crome (Like Firfox has).”

Never mind that suggestion. I had just found out that Google Crome already has that. Thanks anyways for that. But please answer there other stuff in my comment above.

9 Nessa 01.29.09 at 10:15 am

There needs to be an AutoSave feature like Lazarus for FF. A lifesaver!

If you dont know how to use Linkify you can read the instructions at this link:

12 hpm 03.11.09 at 1:25 pm

Is there a way to save a bookmark with the bookmarklet already applied?
For example when I open the bookmark linkify is already applied.

13 Dave 03.16.09 at 12:50 pm

The Gmail This bookmarklet did not work for me..

14 ddkdhar 03.19.09 at 3:10 am

Lot of book mark sites. I have been waiting for plugin extenstions. Thanks for sharing this info.

15 Robert Mark Bram 03.20.09 at 11:42 pm

Great post – thanks for this. Can’t wait for some plugins to come along – especially FoxMarks. 🙂

16 Amit 03.22.09 at 4:31 am

Chrome have a potential..
But FireFox with all its plug-ins, add-ons & extensions is the browser for the developer.

It will take a while till Chrome will have that, don’t you think!?

17 Hiqutipie 05.15.09 at 8:35 pm

Where’s my video downloader…YouTube downloader….Realplayer works on Google Chrome but sometimes it does & sometimes it doesn’t…

19 Hendrik Neumann 05.31.09 at 12:10 pm

In Google Chrome Portable 3 I can’t add the bookmarklets to the bookmarks bar via drag&drop.

20 Burak Erdem 05.31.09 at 12:38 pm

Chrome 3 has a bug with bookmarklets, http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=12290. It doesn’t allow you to drag & drop JavaScript bookmarklets to bookmarks toolbar.

21 SEM Services 08.26.09 at 4:37 am

I love using Google Chrome. It’s quick and easy. However, it’s pretty bad for SEO purposes. Where can I find some decent add ons? And when are Google going to release a tool bar for the browser? As much as I love Firefox, it has too many problems and I really want to use Chrome more. I’d be grateful for any tips.

22 Louis Halpern 09.26.09 at 11:55 am

I love the very speedy Chrome but I can only use it in my leisure time which helps me switch off which is quite a good thing.

If I use Firefox I can’t help myself with all my SEO plug-ins [perhaps writing this comment on a Saturday afternoon from Firefox whilst I’m supposed to be relaxing will help follow through] I automatically start to work even in down time!

23 janam 10.10.09 at 1:01 am

how can i know that the particular webpage i am browsing is safe, not related to any malicious software or viruses? Is there any add on for it it chrome? if yes please suggest me!!!!!!!!

I found the Purifyr bookmarklet from Purifyr.com is truly fantastic. It literally makes reading on web enjoyable again. It takes any web page and turn it into a crisp, clean, printer-friendly page.

26 John Cabell 12.14.09 at 5:07 am

I liked the paperspan bookmarklet for storing web pages those I wanted to read sometime later. Its running fine with Chrome. So, PS bookmarklet helped my migration to Chrome from FF 🙂

27 Cell tracker 02.09.10 at 4:55 am

What is the javascript code for “show bookmarks bar”?
I want to change the Ctrl+Shift+B shortcut to a single button shortcut, like Num9, using the Shortcut Manager extension for Chrome.
