Geek Squeak #17-019: Pocket Extension for Chrome – The best way to save articles, videos and more

I love the Pocket web service to save web pages (and links) instead of using my Chrome browser’s bookmarking feature. By using Pocket, all of the sites I put into (or bookmark to) pocket automatically sync to my phone, tablet and computer and can be viewed at any time, even without an internet connection.

To get started using Pocket, go to getpocket.com, sign up for an account (for FREE). To make the best of Pocket you can then save your finds’ from your email, browser or via the 500+ apps that is integrated with Pocket.

In my case, when using my computer and the Google Chrome Browser, I installed the “Save To Pocket” browser extension for Google Chrome (source link below). The extension is loaded with many features that allows you to capture and save content that is of interest to you… Once you get the hang of using Pocket, whether it be on your computer or smartphone, you will wonder how you did without it.

Extension Features:

  •  One-click saving of any page with the toolbar button or keyboard shortcut
  •  Right-click menu item to save any link, no need to load the page first
  •  Quickly add tags
  •  See related recommendations when you save to Pocket
  •  See trending stories and topics when you open a new tab
  •  Syncs across all devices – iPhone, iPad, Android and more
  •  Completely free, upgrade anytime to Premium for a more powerful Pocket experience

Google recently came out with a Google Chrome Extension called Google Save that gives you another way to bookmark webpages and images (similar to Pocket). I have been playing around with Google Save for approximately a month now and I am already seeing some improvements.  After you install the extension you will see a star type icon. If you want to save a webpage for later viewing simply click the star.  You can also use tags to categorize and organize the pages you save. To get to your saved pages, simply go to google.com/save …
