You may still consider it useless, but I think John's point was that the
inside a web browser because it auto-fills the password field for you.
The workflow is:
1) Browse to page with login
2) Click bookmarklet
3) Box pops up and asks for your password
4) Password field in form is automatically filled in using your
password, plus the appropriate MD5 for *that* site.
5) You're logged in and on your way
That's integration you wouldn't necessarily have if you implemented the
same algorithm outside of your browser.
