Sneak Preview: Bookmarklet 2.0

November 7th, 2012

Our team is working to make logging in to websites easier than ever with new bookmarklet functionality.

The new bookmarklet is able to work on any web page, and automatically log you in. It is only required that the web page has a secret in the Secret Server, and that the user be logged in to Secret Server.

This will greatly improve the compatibility over the web launcher. Sites that implement client-side validation, such as a CAPTCHA, were not compatible. With the new bookmarklet, the username and password will be filled out in the webpage itself, allowing the user to fill out just the CAPTCHA.

Form Filler

Above is an example of the bookmarklet working with Gmail. The bookmarklet will be compatible with recent versions of all major browsers. There isn’t an exact release date at the moment, but expect the functionality soon.

  1. me likes! We have a lot of sites which are not compatible with the old weblauncher anymore and this would be very very good to have.

  2. Yes – it is difficult to solve this problem completely (websites change and standards change …). Hopefully this implementation will be something that everyone can use for years to come.

    We are hoping for a release before year end.

  4. I will check with Product Management to get an exact date for you but I believe it is going out in the next release. I saw another internal demo the other day, it is pretty cool.

    I am looking forward to trying out this feature!
