Tab Killer Turns Links You Want To Read Later Into Pop-Out Bookmarks

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.

The video above is a solid introduction to Tab Killer and how it works. Hover over a link, press Alt+A, and the link is automatically added to Tab Killer for future reference. Alt+Z opens the Tab Killer popup so you can see what’s in it. That way you don’t have tabs sucking up memory, plugins running in other tabs, or auto-play videos or ads blaring in a tab you have open behind five others somewhere.

Tab Killer also fits into your current bookmarks — you can change its bookmarks destination folder and see your bookmarks tree direct from the keyboard. Tab Killer is lightweight, works quickly, and fits easily into your workflow. Hit the link below to try it out.
