Bookmarks – Macs, PC, Browsers, aaaaahhh!!

Been trying to setup a “Bookmark This Page” link for a client. Sounds simple right?

Well of course this client is using Safari on Mac and the usual javascript I use in cases like this doesn’t work in Safari on Mac (or Safari on Windows for that matter).

Thought about writing my own script to do this but frankly it’s just not worth it.
So I found http://www.dynamicsitesolutions.com/javascript/add-bookmark-script/ – not the best solution in the world but it works consistently across browsers and OS, so I think we’ll go with this one.

I do wish it would add the bookmark properly for Firefox, but from the clients stats that’s the least used browser by their visitors so its a concession I’ll make.

Talk about “the devil is in the details”!
