The Great Suspender

Auto-suspend inactive tabs to reduce memory usage of chrome

Pocket for Web

Save things for later with Pocket, refreshed with a new look

Moak DesignsInternet Marketing Specialist · Written
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

I can never read everything I see posted and with Pocket I can easily save with tags so I can find them at a later time.

OneTab

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

Kyle PetersenStudent at Oregon State University · Written
A must have extension. Converts all open tabs into one list!
CommentsShare
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.

Great on CPU and memory (benchmark charts here https://github.com/gorhill/uBloc...) and blocks more than just ads - tracking scripts, etc.

Pushbullet

Send files, links, and more to your phone and back, fast!

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.

Organize your browser tabs

Kevin ChengCEO, Incredible Labs · Written
Like OneTab but I prefer its interface. Organize open tabs to put them away for later.
CommentsShare
Shadab KhanFront-end developer and tech lover · Written
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.

I've used other bookmarking extensions before but this is by far the easiest to use - I love the different categories!!

Ghostery

See which companies are tracking you on websites

Syed Irfaq R. ⚡️3Founder & CEO, Lukonet · Written
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 dislike the visual clutter that surrounds Evernote, but I love the web clipper. There's no better tool to collect info for later, offline and local, consumption.

I'm a freelance writer and I mostly use Evernote for clipping articles when researching topics I'm writing about. I also use it for taking notes when on calls w/ clients and I use the Chrome extension (to clip articles) as well.

It works as expected and that is exactly what you need. You easily can unblock publisher sites that are ad-supported if you want (and which is good for the publisher).

Great bookmarking with tags, page screenshots, cloud syncing, quick search. Best part: super light and available also as a standalone mobile app.

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
CommentsShare
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!

HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox, Chrome, and Opera extension that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure by default.

Marco HinzProgrammer. Runner. · Written
Some websites offer HTTPS ("encrypted browsing"), but not by default. This extension forces HTTPS if it's available. It's handy because you install and can forget about it afterwards.
