Gmail Text Parsing Macro Shortcut Bookmarklet Javascript

Hello, I recently have been trying to switch from Outlook to gmail web interface since Outlook IMAP is terribly slow.  With Outlook I used vba macros that could read parts of the email text and capture the body of the email and save it to my hard drive and then have it call another program on my computer to import the data.  Starting simple does anyone have bookmarklet code that could parse text out of the gmail message subject or body and then use that text in a url to lookup data on a website?  Or is there bookmarklet code that can save the current message to the hard drive and then call up a program on my computer similar to Outlook vba automation?

Thanks in advance!
Shawn

I have discovered that javascript can parse the text out of the subject since the subject can be displayed in the title in gmail.  I haven't figured out how to get the body of the gmail.  The other program that I started using to help with this is AutoHotKey.
