Bookmarklet 1: Show Password

A simple Javascript can be used to view passwords in web browsers. To use the Javascript, open your web browser and open the webpage for which the password is hidden in asterisks.

Use the Show Password bookmarklet by dragging it to your bookmarks/favourites bar to instantly view hidden passwords at the click of a button.

Bookmarklet 2: Show Coordinates

Google Maps does not offer a menu option for obtaining the coordinates – latitude and longitude – of a location. However, you can use another bookmarklet to extract the coordinates.

  1. Find the location for which you would like to obtain coordinates in Google Maps.
  2. Right click on your chosen location, and select “center map here.”
  3. Click on the Show Coordinates Bookmark.

This will activate a small pop-up window that will show the coordinates for the centered location in decimal format. You may copy and paste these coordinates wherever needed.

Drag this to your bookmarks/favourites bar:
