    A friend of mine just showed me her tip to mail URL with just a single click. IMO, it is much easier than to drag the url to Mail.app. I couldn't help but to share it.

    Here's How-to:

    #1. Create a dummy bookmark in Bookmarks Bar
    #2. Rename it "Mail URL" or anything short
    #3. Change the address to

    javascript:location.href='mailto:?SUBJECT='+document.title+'&BODY='+escape(location.href)

    And now each time you want to mail those interesting sites, you just click on the bookmark bar. Cool, isn't it? ;)

    Pretty cool!

    I've got a del.ico.us and a bugmenot bookmarklet set up. What other ones are people running?

    Cool, it seems to work better than Safaris built-in Mail Link to This Page (which I've changed the shortcut to, see attatchment) whenever Mail is NOT running. Thanks. :)

    I just realized that I don't have that "Mail Link To This Page" built-in function with earlier version of Safari. :(
