I was taking a look at a few things this morning along the lines of mobile browser support for extensions and customization. Following along the theme of Russ’s post about using Mowser as a search provider in Opera Mini I just put up a “View in Mowser” bookmarklet for Opera Mini. Thanks again to Dennis at WAPReview for having raised bookmarklet support in Mini to my attention. You can find a collection of Opera Mini friendly bookmarklets at o.yeswap.com.
I have a shortcut setup for this on my install of Mini now. Once you create the bookmarklet and have it working, go into the bookmark manager and select the “Speed Dial” entry. There you can set the bindings for shortcut keys. I have the View in Mowser bookmarklet bound to *1, so I don’t even have to bring up the bookmarks screen to use it.
Opera Mini rocks, I’m surprised to see that the Nokia open source browser still hasn’t grown support for bookmarklets. One other place where it does work however: the Mozilla based browser on the N810. Very cool!
