Fully automated, one-step sending of a URL from Safari
Authored by: emaven on Feb 22, '08 05:04:39PM

javascript:location.href='mailto:somebody@mac.com?SUBJECT='+document.title+'&BODY='+document.title+'%5Cn%20%20%20%3C'+escape(location.href)+'%3E'

This puts the subject in the title, and again in the body of the email along with the URL surrounded with <>.
This is done in case the URL is too long and would break into several lines, which may render the link useless.

Just click send (or command-shift-D) in the mail program and you're done.

I have more than one friend, so I make several of these with each friends name.
Or I can use a group name that gets the individuals from my address book.
But if I have too many friends these bookmarks would take up too much room on my bookmark bar.
There would be no room for my other important bookmarks.

So put them all into a folder, and put the folder on the bookmarks bar.
Then just pick the one you want from the folder.


note:
The script used to put the subject on one line, and the URL on the next line by virtue of the %5Cn.
But that stopped working and I do not know why.
So I added several of %20 to separate the subject from the URL.

You can add the Javascript to each person Card in Address
Book. Use the Url Field. Then in Safari put the Address Book in the Book Marks Bar.
The Names of people with an Url Shows up, if its the Javascript Url it will run

any ideas on how to adapt a Ff3 option for people that use webmail functions instead of Mail.app?

See urls like http://fearthenoob.com/2008/05/23/gmail-mailto-links-in-firefox-3.php where you can tell Ff3 to take you to the url for your webmail. I'm trying to find something similar for Safari 3.
