A new and improved Pocket Extension for Chrome released today has made it easier and faster than ever to save your favourite items. The revamped extension has a streamlined and lightweight facelift, is lightning fast and introduces the ability to add anything you read directly to your Archive. “Over a billion items are saved to Pocket each year and with millions more being saved each day”, notes Pocket in an official blog entry.
We’re always seeking to make the save experience as fast and as useful as possible for you. We know that Pocket is also used to keep track of things you’ve already read and may want to reference later, so we added Archive to make it easy to save something directly to your Archive without having to do this in Pocket later on.
We’ve also improved tagging to be faster and smoother. To get to additional actions like Archive, Remove Page, and Open Pocket, just hover over the Menu button (…) for easy access.
The company has announced that it will be releasing more updates in the near future, as more and more people are now using the Pocket Extension for Chrome throughout their day to save the articles and videos they find interesting. “We’re working on some very exciting things for you!”
Updates for Safari and Firefox Pocket extensions will be released soon as well.
