Find yourself facing a web page loaded with words you’re a little uncertain about, whether they’re another language or a bit obscure? Web tool lingro offers two bookmarklet tools that make every word on a page able to pop up a definition or translation window when clicked on. There’s two flavors of bookmarkleta, quick (one tooltip at a time, no toolbar) and full-featured, and users can contribute their own definitions and translations if lingro’s Creative Commons-licensed sources can’t fine one. A good tool to keep tucked away for those over-wrought essays friends link you to.lingro: bookmarklet [via Download Squad]
Internet Explorer 7 might have some chops when it comes to handling and organizing RSS feeds, but dedicated Google Reader fans don’t get much love from the browser—there’s no option in the interface for adding a feed anywhere but inside IE7’s “Live Bookmarks,” leaving the copy-and-paste job to the user. Alex at the Google Operating System blog points out two makeshift solutions: Install Google Toolbar 5, or add a nifty “Subscribe” bookmarklet to your Links toolbar, provided on Google Reader’s Settings->Goodies page. Both seem far more convenient than digging to find the address of a site’s feed and pasting it into Google Reader’s “Add Subscription” dialog.

One of the first things that stood out about my new iPod Touch’s browser interface was the lack of a copy/paste function—and it really stuck out when sending email or filling out forms. Quasi Clipboard, a bookmarklet for the iPhone and iPod Touch, isn’t a copy/paste fix, but it’s a decent half-way fix. Hit the “Set” button and type in some text (that you’re hopefully looking at in-browser), and you can recall that text into any text box later with the “Get” button. For hard-to-remember items like account numbers and URLs, it’s definitely better than jumping back and forth between pages. Quasi Touch requires syncing your iPhone/iPod Touch with Safari (Mac) or Internet Explorer (Windows) to install.Quasi Clipboard [via Micro Persuasion]
