Tired of bookmarklets clogging your browser's bookmarks bar? The Bookmarklet to Chrome Extension Converter provides an easy fix to the problem. This simple webapp lets you turn any bookmarklet into a Chrome extension in a matter of seconds.

To generate an extension from a bookmarklet, paste the bookmarklet's code into the appropriate field, give the extension a name and description, press the Generate extension button, then download and unpack the generated zip archive. In Google Chrome, switch to the Extensions section, tick the Developer mode check box, press the Load unpacked extension button and select the unpacked extension.

Since the converter's source code is available on the author's blog, you can easily deploy the webapp on your own server. Grab the latest release of the converter, unpack the downloaded archive, and move the resulting directory to the document root of your server. That's all there is to it.
