I whipped up a little tool this evening that I thought y'all might like. It's called the Technorati Anywhere! bookmarklet. What it does is simple - the bookmarklet opens a new window or tab in your browser with the list of links (and short excerpts) of people who link to the page you're viewing. It is a new way of instantly checking sources and finding out the credibility of the page you're currently viewing. If you don't like your browser opening new windows or tabs, here's a version of Technorati Anywhere! that shows the results in the current window.
To install it, do the following, depending on the browser you have:
For IE 5.5 and above users:
Drag the link into your bookmark bar. Alternatively, you can right click on the link and then click on "Add bookmark".For Safari users:
Drag the link into your bookmark bar.That's it! I hope you enjoy it. I like it better than the Technorati Sidebar I created a while back, and the instant gratification of being able to find out the Link Cosmos for any page on the web gives me a much richer experience. I hope you enjoy it too Send me feedback and leave comments below, I'd love to hearfrom you on its usefulness, bugs, new features whatever.
Update: Emmanuel M. Decarie sent in the update to get everything working with Safari. Thanks, Emmanuel, that was quick!
