What is a bookmarklet?

A bookmarklet is a specially prepared bookmark for your browser that, when clicked, submits the page you’re currently on to once.to for shortening or exploring.

This allows for one-click shortening or exploring any page’s URL (provided that it doesn’t violate our Terms of Service, of course).
