Edge can’t do bookmarklets…

I wanted to use the “PressThis” button to post about something else quickly today (filesprout – awesome, check it out) but instead I ended up falling down a rabbit hole of trying to set up bookmarklets in Microsoft’s new Edge browser. There are lots of search results on this, but all ultimately point to the same itworld.com article  on how to hack this together. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work for me. When I alter the content of a URL link in favourites it just disappears from the browser.

I wanted to give Edge a real try, but this issue is a deal breaker for me. I use bookmarklets daily and I don’t want to have to change that.
