Alternatively, you can just drag and drop the bookmarklet on the Bookmarks Toolbar.
In Internet Explorer 6:
In Internet Explorer 7:
I have successfully tested the bookmarklets in Internet Explorer 7 (RC1). The installation is similar to IE6. However, for the bookmarklets to work properly you may need to disable IE7’s built in pop up blocker and tweak the default security settings, otherwise you will have to explicitly allow the bookmarklet script to run everytime you use it.
The bookmarklets below can be used in two ways:
If you select (highlight) text on the web page you are browsing and then click on the bookmarklet on your toolbar, the corresponding search for the selected text will be performed and the result displayed in a new window (or tab).
If you do not select (highlight) any text on the web page you are browsing and click on the bookmarklet on your toolbar, you will be asked to type in your search terms and then the corresponding search for the entered text will be performed and the result displayed in a new window (or tab).
I have created these bookmarklets and used them to research a topic I want to blog about or a work related problem I want to solve. I hope you will find them useful as well.2 Comments | Filed in Firefox, Oracle | Tags: bookmark, del.icio.us, Documentation, Firefox, internet-explorer, search

del.icio.us: casting the net wider: If you use del.icio.us, you may be glad to know that they have introduced new “system generated” tags. Bookmarked items in del.icio.us that end in one of a number of filetypes will now automatically get some system tags added. You can use these just like normal tags. RSS feeds that have one of those system tags added will automatically become a rss-with-enclosures file.Comments Off | Filed in Interesting | Tags: del.icio.us
