WordPress removed the “Press This” bookmarklet because:
- WordPress developers are fucking idiots.
- WordPress developers fucking hate you, the user.
Most of the links I put up on this site were usually through the bookmarklet. “We just want to increase security”, they say, then break the functionality without a proper equivalent in place.
They’re probably friends with Firefox developers, who also like to break with the past without regard to their users.
But what do users know, right? Developers always know better.
