Are you the kind of person who does a lot of link hopping, leaving huge mess of tabs opened which you want to read later. I do that quite often and many times when I have more than a 20 opened, I can totally feel the sluggishness of my browser. Coming to browser, do you use Google Chrome ? If yes, read ahead. If no, install it and then resume reading.
OK so you are back, so here is my solution – ReadLater. It is a very simple extension in which all you have to do is go to your tab, and do an add. It is not only saved in your browser memory, but it will also be synced across all the chrome browsers on which you are signed in. Easy !!!
- Download the extension zip file from: https://github.com/downloads/napsternxg/ReadLater/ReadLater.zip
- Unzip the extension to a folder **ReadLater** anywhere on your computer.
- Put your Google Chrome in Developer Mode. Go to Tools > Extensions. Click on the Check Box on Top Right which says Developer Mode.
- Now click on Load Unpacked Extension …
- Select the folder where you unzipped the ReadLater.zip file.
- You will see a small icon on your chrome, top right.
- Click on it, to see if the popup is coming.
- If it is working, yippiee..ki…yay, start adding links and reading more online =)
