Chrome: Not content with letting Pocket have the spotlight, Google has introduced a new extension called Save to Google that allows you to save articles to read later.
While its comparable to Pocket, regular Pocket users may find quite a few features missing. Technically Save to Google doesn’t grab the text of the article itself. Instead, it gives you a link that you can follow later. You can also add notes or tags to an article that you’ve saved to help organise your links and remember why you saved them, as well as save images when you perform a Google image search, so this seems a bit more like a notebook than a straight Pocket replacement.
So far, there aren’t any mobile apps where you can find the articles or images you’ve saved later. The only way to find your saved items is by visiting google.com/save. For now, it’s pretty limited, but it’s a quick, handy way to browse articles you’ve saved now that Google killed off its brief bookmark experiment.
