One of the best features of Safari for iOS is Reader. With a tap of a button you can strip a web site down to its bare essentials and read without the clutter of menus or ads. Wired points out you can get the same feature in a browser like Chrome using a bookmarklet from Readability or Instapaper.
Chrome: If you use browser tabs as a way to keep track of things you want to read, or your bookmarks folder is a mess, Tab Killer is the perfect bridge between the two. With a few key commands, you can add any link or tab to a pop-out list of sites for safe keeping. Another shortcut opens or edits anything in the list.
Chrome/Opera: When I start reading about any subject on the web, it’s easy for me to go from link to link and have a whole bunch of tabs open. Grouping and bookmarking them is a pain, and sometimes I just forget to do that. But CottonTracks doesn’t.
Chrome: There are a lots of ways to organise your overflowing tabs, but few are as pretty and customisable as new add-on Collectably. The extension saves open tabs into Pinterest-like boards for better organisation.
There are a lot of great bookmark-and-read-later services out there, but if you want to switch from one to another, you probably want to take your old articles with you. Here’s how to import your old Instapaper or Readability articles into Pocket.
Pocket is one of our favourite ways to bookmark and read things later. Now, you can send articles straight to your other friends that are using Pocket. No email, Facebook or other networks necessary.
