Browse a web page and you’ll find various links and external pages that link to other sites. The problem is that, during a working day, we don’t have the time to visit the other sites, external pages or read other information. However, we also don’t want to lose these links and might want to browse them at a later date.

Pocket (was Read It Later) is a Chrome extension that will enable you to browse the web (using Chrome) and simply add links, external pages and more, then build up a database of links that you can refer to, at a later date.

You can add the links by using a button on your Chrome toolbar or by right-clicking and adding using your right mouse button menu. Once saved, simply go to Pocket, via your web browser or mobile device (iPad etc) and you'll be able to read a simplied version of your saved web documents, much like reading a book at your leisure.
