SEO’s have to deal with an overwhelming amount of information everday. Tools that aid in the speed of gathering and disseminating that information more quickly are essential.

Bookmarklets are a wonderful tool for making life as a power surfer a little bit easier. They have been replaced in some respects by extensions which also serve to make things quicker and easier as well. There are a lot of similarities and a few differences between extensions and bookmarklets. If you’d like some fun with extensions, there’s a list of some favorite Firefox extensions here.
