Hi guys,

Lately, I've found the OSM History Viewer[1] (Wiki) to be a really useful
tool for checking changesets created by other users. But it's quite a hassle
opening a new tab to load the service then copy-pasting the changeset ID. So
I created a bookmarklet such that whenever I am on a changeset page on the
OSM website, I can just apply the bookmarklet and be whisked off to the
History Viewer instantly.

Shown below is the bookmarklet URL if you want it too. It's just a
quick-and-dirty piece of JavaScript hacked together in a span of 5 minutes.
To install, just create a new bookmark with the whole geeky text below in
the URL/URI/address field. Enjoy!
