Some Bookmarklets for Safari. Drag to the bookmark bar.

Toggle Passwords | Linkify | Remove redirects | Long URL Please | Allow Right-Click | List all Links | Send via Shareaholic | Share on FriendFeed | ...more

Adblocker system wide: a good windows hosts file, Ad Muncher or in Outpost Firewall integrated Ads and Counter blocker 'ImproveNet' if not in Hardware Firewall already custom url/ip/... pattern are possible to block.

Credits fly out to seba14 for the demo test wp-pages to test the Bookmarklets.
