New bookmarklet: counters
(drag to Links-bar or right-click to Add to Favorites)

Tested in IE6 and Firefox. For every mouseclick, a small [1], [2], [3] incrementing counter will appear. Handy if you want to easily count the number of times something occurs on a page, such as the number of films you've seen of a specific IMDb actor/director (which prompted this idea in my case).

Quick hack to allow custom text, rather than incrementing count: notes

Aside drawing yellow moustaches on a page, what kind of use can you make of it ?

Well, count stuff, obviously :)
Now I know I've seen 23 Susumu Terajima films...

Also handy for finding out how many of the top 250 movies you have seen:

Lousy me, I thought of something slightly beyond simply counting stuffs :p

Like adding a note.

Something like this? (Try the 'notes' link above)
I'd expand it with the option to edit and move current notes, but I'm sure somebody else has already built this...

It'd be cool to have the numbers, and that the note appear on hover of them. Gosh, why am I at work while I could fiddle on the bookmarklet :p

But yeah, you are certainly re-inventing the wheel.

Indeed, it's been done already:
