Movie Link Java Hacks
 

I like to hunt around for movies to rent on Netflix - being an information junkie I like multiple sources - chiefly IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, and Wikipedia.  The java scripts below are entered as the url locations in shortcuts.  When on one site looking at a movie, select the shortcut and the corresponding page in the other database will load.  This idea is borrowed from a "hacking netflix" post I read that had the first couple - I extended it to the the other applications.  Have fun....

'http://www.netflix.com/Search?v1='+encodeURIComponent(document.title.substring(0,document.title.length-7))+'';
