del.icio.us inline preview

I browse using one Firefox window and multiple tabs. That’s why I use the delicious post bookmarklet that stays in the same window rather than the popup bookmarklet.
Sometimes I hit the bookmarklet and the page title that gets filled in is terrible (e.g., the title is the same on all pages on the site and not specifically about the page I want to bookmark). I want to change it, but I can’t quite remember what the exact title is. So I press back on my browser, copy the title, press forward, then paste it into the input field. It’s a big arduous, so I wrote a tiny greasemonkey user script.
All it does is add a link that creates an iframe with the content directly below the form. Now I can see both pages without having to navigate back and forth. Note that I only tested it on the “new” del.icio.us posting interface.
On a related note, there was talk on the del.icio.us mailing list about suggesting tags based on the word count of a page. It would be pretty easy to do this client side as a greasemonkey user script. Too bad I don’t really care about the quality of tags I use.
