Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want bookmarks specific to aiding in programming tasks, not to every task.

If the bookmark is awesome to every user, please don't post it as an answer here. I will down vote it and I suggest to users do the same. To general bookmarks, please post on Webapps.StackExchange

Good answer is a bookmark which helps the programmer work.

I don't expect get too many answers although it would be a great surprise if it happens.

Please, explain what the bookmark does and where it can be used.

So bookmarks specific to aiding in programming tasks? Is this what you are looking for? Also, does it matter what type of programming? Because I can foresee a big difference for a web application developer compared to a C or assembly programmer. –  Chris Oct 13 '10 at 18:44
    
@Chris: I'm having a hard time understanding as well. That was my take after reading it twice. –  Josh K Oct 13 '10 at 18:46
    
@Chris: Exactly. Feel free to edit to better understanding. You know my English is poor. I think any bookmarklet which helps programming is useful to us in general. –  bigown Oct 13 '10 at 19:03
    
Thanks for the clarification. –  Chris Oct 13 '10 at 19:03

DOM Count

javascript:alert(document.getElementsByTagName("*").length)

I use it as a sort of gut estimate for when a page is getting too heavy to interact with. IE doesn't like it when the DOM count starts hitting ranges of 4000 or up (depends on what exactly is in the DOM).

I've got StackOverflow.com, a couple of other StackExchange sites, and XKCD on Speed Dial for Chrome. That way, all I have to do is open a new tab, click, and wham!
