Bookmarklets are kind of a cross between bookmarks and browser extension - they don't need to be installed; they look just like bookmarks on your bookmarks bar, but instead of loading a page when you click them, they do something to/with the current page.

How to Install a Bookmarklet
1) Drag the link to your bookmarks bar.
(Alternatively, you can right click on your browser toolbar, and click "New Bookmark" (in Firefox) or "Add Page" (in Chrome), and paste the link in the "location/URL box.

2) Give it any Name you want (eg: Download Youtube)
3) Save it

How to use a Bookmarklet
Whenever you're on a the page that you want to use it, simply click on that bookmark.

Simple enough

https://archive.is/submit/?url=https://example.com/


Code: [Select]
javascript:(function(){  var currentUrl = encodeURIComponent(window.location.href);  var archiveUrl = 'https://archive.is/submit/?url=%27 + currentUrl;  window.open(archiveUrl, %27_blank%27);})();

Sometimes articles are behind paywalls i.e. new york time. Archive.ph bypass it.
So this is a semi automated way to just click and it will put the URL in and then you can view the page without the paywall.
