Chrome Extension VS Bookmarklet 

Bookmarklet are lighter – When you install extensions or apps to Google Chrome or extensions to Firefox or other browsers they take up memory to run on their own. They are applications which run all the time you use your browser. Bookmarklets on the other hand are used only when you click them. When you click, it does its job and clears itself from the memory. That is because Bookmarklets are simply pieces of Javascript code that run when you click on them. So they are not applications but still manage to do the job.
So they use no primary or (almost)secondary memory, use
practically no CPU time.
* The code performance tested on various desktop browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE, Edge, and more on Windows and macOS platforms.

Try it. It works ( almost ) on any webpage and completely free.
