Dashler is a bookmarklet. When clicked, it opens up a toolbar on top of the webpage you viewing.
On the right of the toolbar are 3 important icons.
Within your toolbar, you'll find the following types of items:
Your Bookmarks is a folder that contains all the pages you've bookmarked.
Drag and drop any links into this folder to bookmark a page.
To instantly search your bookmarks, click on the icon and a dialog will appear.
Quick Find allows you to search for tools and shortcuts.
You can drag and drop any items that it finds right into your Dashler toolbar.
This is the Main Menu of Dashler.
Shortcuts allow you to access other websites either on-screen or in a new tab.
Very often, a shortcut will use information from the page you are viewing, such as the URL, domain, or
modify the page you are viewing in a beneficial and specific way.
You can add your own bookmarks or bookmarklets by drag and drop. Then you
can search for things you've bookmarked, by title, URL, or a custom description.
Click on the item's icon, hold the mouse button down, and move the item.
To cancel the action, you can drop the item anywhere not on the toolbar.
When the item is dragged over a spot where you can drop it, it will turn blue-ish.
The spot that it will be dropped will have a green indicator.
You can drag and drop items into folders or subfolders by hovering over the folder or
subfolder for a moment. It should open up and allow you to drop it within.
Once you drop the item, Dashler will indicate that the change has been saved
by showing a "saved" label in the upper left.
Start dragging the item. The right-most icon (usually the Main Menu)
will turn into a trash can:
Drop the item on the trash can to delete it.
Note: You cannot undo deleting an item.

Dashler offers simple, easy, and powerful bookmarking.

page will be the first item in the menu.
Click the bookmark, or drag and drop it to anywhere in your Toolbar.
When adding a bookmark, a dialog will appear which allows you to set
the name and description of the URL. Filling these in allows you to
easily search for the bookmark in the future.

data from Delicious.com
All links on the page can be dragged and dropped,

also drag and drop the item anywhere into your Toolbar.

Some shortcuts require text as input. To fill in the text, you can manually

Shortcuts which use a URL as a parameter will allow links from the current page
to be dragged and dropped right onto them. For example, you can drag and drop
a link onto the Bit.ly "shorten this URL" shortcut. To see which shortcuts allow
