woot.com provides microsummary

woot.com now provides a microsummary of its home page showing the current product for sale on that site:

Three days ago I didn't even know woot.com existed. Now I not only know about it, I can see what it's selling every day with a glance at my bookmarks toolbar, and I've already bought something. Woot!

How is this wondrous thing found? I read their blog to find out what's on the menu for the day. I checked out their site and didn't see anything about a microsummary.

I don't think they're advertising it yet, but if you're using a recent nightly of Firefox 2.0, you can find it by going to their home page, then selecting Bookmark This Page from the Bookmarks menu.

The Name field in the Add Bookmark dialog box should be an editable menulist which opens when you click the icon on the right-hand side of the field. Select the microsummary from the menu, click OK to add the bookmark, and you're good to go!

See these instructions for more information.

Yes, it should be. I'll contact them and see what we can do. In the meantime, check out the newly redesigned lists of example microsummary generators and example microsummary-enabled web sites.
