Client-side Enhancements to Improve your Blogging

The Pitch: One of the reasons I love moosecamp is that, to use Nancy White's phrase, it allows me to "learn over the shoulder" of a lot of really experienced bloggers/web users. I'm particularly interested in learning about ways people use "client side extensions" - browser-based means like bookmarklets, plugins, add-ons, greasemonkey scripts, etc, - to improve their blogging experience. To me, the browser, as the last place data hits before you see it, and as the environment over which you, as the end user, exert the most control, offers an ideal place to perform mashups or other enhancements to your blogging experience. So I'd like to explore some of these - we have some like feedly, ubiquity, scribefire, etc, to demo, but what we're really hoping is that others will show off their process/tips/tricks, because everyone's got some trick they've figured out that I'd love to know.
