If you quote/link to webpages you like or find interesting a lot in your LJ.... Here is a usefull little browser toolbar icon for you shamelessly ripped from a simmilar toolbar feature that Blogger has.

What it does:
After you create the LJThis toolbar icon (instructions below), if you are on a webpage and click it, it will take you to a edit your journal page with a link to the page with the page title as the link text and subject of the entry, and if you have any text selected that text included in the entry.

How to get this LJThis toolbar Icon

Start by dragging an link to your toolbar (doesn't matter what link we are going to replace its destination anyway).... for ease of doing this, here is one for you:
Then depending on your browser type right click on the the resulting toolbar icon and select properties and replace the URL/Location with:

(for IE on windows)
javascript:Q='';if(top.frames.length==0)Q=document.selection.createRange().text;void(btw=window.open('http://www.livejournal.com/update.bml?mode=full&subject='+escape(document.title)+'&event=' + escape('<A HREF="'+location.href+'">'+document.title+'</A> ' + Q),'LJForm',''));btw.focus();

(for Mozilla on all platforms or IE on Mac)
javascript:Q=document.getSelection();void(window.open('http://www.livejournal.com/update.bml?mode=full&subject='+escape(document.title)+'&event=' + escape('<A HREF="'+location.href+'">'+document.title+'</A> ' + Q),'LJForm',''));

and violla... instant web quoting fun...
Note: I have not tested it on IE for mac, if it doesn't work let me know and I will try it on my mac and figure out what is wrong (I usually use Mozilla on my Mac)... Also The Mozilla version should also work with Netscape... not sure about Netscape 4.7 but anything after 5 should be fine.
