    • Amazing app overall. I have been using the app since day 1, and the speed in which the product iterates and quality of the new features added shows me that this is a product I can trust and use for the long term

    • Great app that I actually been using for awhile, way before Product Hunt. I like it because it's simple, allows you to focus on things you need to get done and allows for easy tracking.

    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 used is for well over 1y and it's OneTab that I always keep opened. Whenever I let loose browsing and I know I have to get back to my focus - right click and move to one-tab for later. Thanks OT team for making this amazing tool.

    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.

      Downloaded. Couldn't even try it stopped by request to register account. If every minor Chrome extension would require registration for usage, it would be nightmare. There are OneTab that does similar job very good with no need to provide an email.

      This one looks like hustling to get your contacts and spam you.

      Downloaded the product, looks great and perfect for a big problem I have had for years with bookmarks and then later realized that my brownser home page had change to toby?!?! what?? not cool. If you will change a setting in my browser you HAVE to let me know, and if you did let me know then it was not clear AT ALL.

      It's definitely a leap to use a password manager. Actually it's a pain in the ass. but it's so worth it.

      Passwords aren't going away any time soon so this is the only safe options for the near future. Get onto it.

      I just saved $15 on a new bed frame last night using Honey.

      Honey is one of my favorite Chrome extensions. In the past I would often search Google for “STORE NAME coupon”, browsing through ugly, popup-ridden coupon code sites, most of which didn’t work (because they’re expired or fake). Honey does that for you and attempts to apply codes at checkout.

      They also have a price tracking feature for sites like Amazon so you can signup to receive a notification when the price drops.

      Product discovery, where the right consumer has access to the right solution at the right time, is essential. Honey has the solution that people want, now it has to make sure it reaches all the interested folk through channel partnerships.

    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.

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!
