What is a bookmarklet?
that means is that a bookmarklet acts like a link, and you
can bookmark it or add it to your favourites, but it is dynamic
and interactive too, so it will really link to all sorts of
different things according to what you are viewing, what you
highlight, or what you enter when prompted.
They are stored in your 'favourites' or 'bookmarks' menu
and when activated (clicked) they will run the scripts in
them, usually based on data from the page you are viewing
at that time. It's almost like magic. Bookmarklets can add
whole new, nifty features to your browser.
How does it work?
Firstly, to install the bookmarklets just right-click on
the ones you want and then click on 'Add to favourites'. If
you see a security alert, don't worry: this is just because
just as safe to use as dooyoo itself. The bookmarklets are
'installed' as soon as you have added them to your favourites.
To use them, let's say you're surfing around and you find
an item you'd like to find out more about. Simply highlight
the name of the item then click on the 'products' bookmarklet
in your 'favourites' and it'll show you the relevant dooyoo
search results in a new window. It's as simple as that. You
can even use it for members and opinions as well, helping
you have instant access to your dooyoo. If you don't
select any text a little box will pop up, prompting you to
enter your search request (the words you want to search for).
In essence, you can now use dooyoo from anywhere on the web,
whenever you like.
