Geek Squeak #17-019: Pocket Extension for Chrome – The best way to save articles, videos and more

I love the Pocket web service to save web pages (and links) instead of using my Chrome browser’s bookmarking feature. By using Pocket, all of the sites I put into (or bookmark to) pocket automatically sync to my phone, tablet and computer and can be viewed at any time, even without an internet connection.

To get started using Pocket, go to getpocket.com, sign up for an account (for FREE). To make the best of Pocket you can then save your finds’ from your email, browser or via the 500+ apps that is integrated with Pocket.

In my case, when using my computer and the Google Chrome Browser, I installed the “Save To Pocket” browser extension for Google Chrome (source link below). The extension is loaded with many features that allows you to capture and save content that is of interest to you… Once you get the hang of using Pocket, whether it be on your computer or smartphone, you will wonder how you did without it.

Extension Features:

  •  One-click saving of any page with the toolbar button or keyboard shortcut
  •  Right-click menu item to save any link, no need to load the page first
  •  Quickly add tags
  •  See related recommendations when you save to Pocket
  •  See trending stories and topics when you open a new tab
  •  Syncs across all devices – iPhone, iPad, Android and more
  •  Completely free, upgrade anytime to Premium for a more powerful Pocket experience

Save Webpages To Google

Google recently came out with a Google Chrome Extension called Google Save that gives you another way to bookmark webpages and images (similar to Pocket). I have been playing around with Google Save for approximately a month now and I am already seeing some improvements.  After you install the extension you will see a star type icon. If you want to save a webpage for later viewing simply click the star.  You can also use tags to categorize and organize the pages you save. To get to your saved pages, simply go to google.com/save …

All My Faves Is A Simple Alternative To Traditional Internet Navigation

Most of us have a set routine when it comes to navigating the internet and do not venture far from that routine. When we do venture, we go to the search engines for answers. As a result, we miss out on a lot of what is out there due to the ranking structure of the search engines and the cumbersome nature of the internet. Today I want to share with you what I call the “ultimate home page”, which is actually called All My Faves.

All My Faves

All My Faves is a categorized virtual directory and visual platform that consists of the best (and latest) web sites on the internet. The developer’s of All My Faves has done all the work for you to help you save time and to help keep you safe (all sites are scrutinized and reviewed).

Get The NEW Chrome Bookmark Manager Extension (by Google)

You can make the Google Chrome Bookmarks and the Bookmarks manager more powerful by incorporating the intelligence of Google Search with a NEW modern user interface (called Bookmark Manager). This extension is a “must have” extension… You will especially like the “auto folders” feature that will automatically categorize your bookmarks for you. I never cared much for bookmark managers built into browsers, but this one has me thinking differently.

Google Chrome Bookmark Manager

Here is what you get with this extension:

One-click save: When you bookmark, you can now save an image and note to make your bookmarks more helpful. Also, Google will suggest a folder if it seems like it could be a fit.

Improved search: Quickly find that elusive page with search powered by Google, which looks not only at the bookmark title and snippet, but also the bookmarked page’s content.

Collect bookmarks by topic: Your bookmarks will automatically be organized by topic, like “Tokyo” and “Photography.” If you’d rather, you can still organize them into folders yourself.

Familiar bookmarks, new look: Your existing bookmarks will automatically get updated with images and descriptions, wherever possible.

Share: Have a folder of favorite bookmarks? You can make it public and share the link with whomever you’d like to access it. Everything else will remain private.

Access your bookmarks anywhere: Bookmarked an article on your phone to finish reading on your laptop? Chrome will continue to sync your bookmarks across all of your devices, just like it does today.

 

Be Sure To Visit Bookmarks4Techs

When I started blogging I started bookmarking tech sites that I visited. After a period of time I had quite a collection and thought, this may be beneficial to others (who have the desire to learn about computers and information technology). Bookmarks4Techs has become a hobby of sorts.

As of this posting, the collection has grown to approximately 814 sites (and continues to grow). If you are interested, please visit Bookmarks4Techs.com. Don’t let the name fool you, that this site is for those with technical expertise; there is something there for everyone. If you do not see your favorite tech site, please let me know and I will consider adding it.

Ever hear of QuickLinkr? I never heard of QuickLinkr, until NOW…

QuickLinkr is a cloud based bookmarking service that gives you the ability to keep all of your bookmarks in one place, that is available from any device, any where, any time! QuickLinkr is currently in beta!

QuickLinkr

What separates QuickLinkr from many of the other bookmarking services is that once you add an URL (web site), QuickLinkr will capture and create a mini version of the bookmarked page (larger than a thumbnail) which creates a tiled type interface that is quite visually appealing.

I suggest you create an account with QuickLinkr so that you can customize your own Quickboard where you can create folders, make folders private or public, use a background image, view your bookmarked sites directly from QuickLinkr, etc… There are no ads, no social logins and no forced registration with QuickLinkr. A browser bookmarklet is also available that allows you to capture the URL of a site and send it directly to your QuickLinkr Quickboard.

To see a demo QuickLinkr in action, [CLICK HERE] .
