Create the Ultimate Command Line for your Browser
Overview: You will learn how to use Quix browser bookmarklet to Make a Super Bookmarklet for your browser.
What is Quix?
What’s in it for You?
You can remove several extensions, GreaseMonkey scripts, and existing bookmarklets. This will get rid of some browser bloat (caused by extensions) and speed things up. It will also clean up your browser’s interface a little. Plus, you can add a lot of power and flexibility to your browser using Quix.
Removing Unnecessary Extensions
Before I added the Quix Bookmarklet to FireFox, I was running the following extensions: Ubiquity, Evernote Clipper, Delicious (among others).
I was able to uninstall them completely. This took two buttons off my toolbar and cut back on some ram. Not all of the big five browsers use extensions, but most support them in some form, so this will have a similar effect there too.
Removing Unnecessary Greasemonkey Scripts
I was able to remove a few Greasemonkey scripts that I no longer needed.
Combining Several Bookmarklets into One Button
Bookmarklets don’t place any processing load on your browser when they are not being used, but they do take up space on your toolbar. I was able to remove the following highlighted bookmarklets from my toolbar and replace them with functions in Quix.
How to use Quix
Just go to Quixapp.com and drag the Quix bookmarklet to your Bookmarks toolbar
Click the Quix bookmarklet and type a short command (1 – 10 letters).
The command above (bd) will bookmark the current page to your Delicious account.
Your browser performs a helpful task for you.
Here is a full list of Quix commands and what they do.
If you have some coding skills and like getting your hands dirty, you can even create you own custom commands.
