    I love using this because it will save the permanent copy of the content even if the page no longer exists, they allow you to update the content within the pocket if you wanted updated version.

    I love Pocket and use the Chrome extension on a daily basis. But beware, you may end up adding a lot (yes a loooot..) of articles which you can't read in one life term ;) . Be disciplined, add what you really want to read later and archive frequently to have a stress free reading experience

    Save 95% memory by converting all your open tabs into a list

    A must have extension. Converts all open tabs into one list!
    OneTab is an amazing way to manage tabs and save what you are researching or browsing, when you don't have time to finish that activity. With OneTab it's like always having a mini-dashboard full of everything I need.

    I work with music curation and everyday I open more than 200 tabs and this extension saved my life.

    Better Than Bookmarks

    Kevin Cheng
    Kevin ChengCEO, Incredible Labs · Written
    Like OneTab but I prefer its interface. Organize open tabs to put them away for later.
    I've used other bookmarking extensions before but this is by far the easiest to use - I love the different categories!!

    Great tab management extension. We can make lists of tabs and then close the tab and it saves it for us to visit it in the future. You even get the option of either accessing the extension via a New Page or through the extension icon in the tray, meaning you can choose not to have the app take up your New Page in Chrome.

    My cure for FOMO. When I come across an interesting article, instead of feeling pressure to read it immediately, I'll send it to Pushbullet for reading later.

    I used to use this extension but stopped after I came to know, they sell data to advertising companies, unfortunately. Switched to "Privacy Badger" instead. Ghostery would've been good if they weren't selling info.

    I have been looking for a app like this in such a long time. I do not really like Safari or Chrome...For me this has been a lifesaver. Beautiful looking and 2$ a month for dropbox backup. Approved
    I started bookmarking with raindrop about a month ago and by far I think it's the best web based bookmark manager. Nice interface, fast loading, nested folder, lots of icon choices for the folders, and tag support.

    Best Chrome extension for saving a bunch of tabs
    Jason Davis
    Jason DavisProgrammer, Apollo Web Studio · Written
    I was about to post Session Buddy it has saved my ass at least 6,000 times in the past few years. Besides saving a full collection of windows and tabs for a session and allowing to save for future use you can also export that session as text, JSON, HTML, Markdown, and CSV formats. I have some backups where I had 30 windows and 800 tabs open and it saves it all like nothing I highly recommend this extension!
