Rad browser bookmarklet by Norbauer Applications:
When highlights are created on any Kindle device, they are synced up to Amazon’s cloud. These are then visible at kindle.amazon.com, but there is no reason to believe that Amazon will continue to provide this service forever, and our ability to work with text in that hosted browser-based environment is limited.
We wanted a way cleanly to download our highlights onto our local computers, so we created a bookmarklet that permits one to excise highlights from the book’s kindle.amazon.com page.

As a happy, longtime Instapaper user, I need the Instapaper Text bookmarklet often when settling in for a lengthy read on my MacBook Air.
I’d like to share a tip that’ll save time of switching to your mouse or trackpad.
When the bookmarklet is saved to your browser, you can use it with the page you’re viewing by following these steps:
- Move your cursor to the address (a.k.a. location) bar by pressing Command + L.1
- Type the first few letters of the bookmarklet name (or the whole thing if you type quickly).
- Press Enter.
If you use folders in Instapaper2, you can take this a step further by saving the bookmarklet for those folders as well.
