Creating a Safari link button to favorite a site with StumbleUpon WebToolbar

Safari user, sometime StumbleUpon user. Don’t like having to remember to use Firefox to favorite a site in StumbleUpon. StumbleUpon has a WebToolbar but for some reason does not provide instructions for setting up a Bookmarks Bar button to it ala Delicious.

In Safari make a new bookmark in your Bookmarks Bar called “StumbleUpon” with the following address:

javascript:(function(){location.href='http://www.stumbleupon.com/toolbar/#url=' + encodeURIComponent(window.location.href);})()

It opens the page you are currently on within the StumbleUpon web toolbar so you can thumbs up or thumbs down it.

About Ken Judy

I am an executive manager, software developer, father and husband trying to do more good than harm. I am an agile practitioner. I say this fully aware I say nothing. Sold as a tool to solve problems, agile is more a set of principles that encourage us to confront problems. Broad adoption of the jargon has not resulted in wide embrace of these principles. I strive to create material and human good by respecting co-workers, telling truth to employers, improving my skills, and caring for the people affected by the software I help build.

  1. Ken you are awesome! This is just what I’ve been searching for and why I moved away from Safari in the first place. Thank you so much! And I’m going to stumble you right after I post this comment so other Safari users can use your bookmarklet too.
