Useful Web Developer Bookmarklets

A bookmarklet is normally some JavaScript that you save as a bookmark that will let you apply that JavaScript to a particular page.

Here will be a growing list of bookmarklets that I use regularly.

Getting coordinates from Google Maps

Code:

javascript:javascript:void(prompt('',gApplication.getMap().getCenter()));

Use Case:

When you are attempting to get the coordinates of a location, you can use Google Maps to find the location and click on this bookmarklet, it will alert the coordinates onto the screen.
