I have mentioned Read it Later before. It is a great add-on for anybody that does a lot of browsing but has little time to read everything they want to. I use the service to save various articles or topics I would like to write about on my various blogs but that is only one out of a million ways you can use this great service and Firefox extension.
I recently upgraded from using the standard bookmarklet to save pages to the Firefox add-on and I have been really impressed with how it integrates into the browsing experience. Want to save something for later? Just click the icon for it in the address bar. You can then pull up your saved links by clicking another toolbar button that is added right into the Firefox interface. You can also sync your saved pages to multiple browsers and devices. So, I could save a link 5 minutes before I have to go to work – then read it after work on my iPad.
Here are some more of the fantastic features:
- Save pages to a reading list to read when you have time.
- Offline reading mode lets you read the items you’ve saved for later on the plane, train, or anywhere without an internet connection.
- Sync your list to all of your computers, at work or home.
- Sync your list to Read It Later apps for iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android and more.
- After reading, bookmark pages on your preferred bookmarking service or share them with friends.
- Click to Save Mode lets you quickly batch a reading list just by clicking on interesting links.
- Text view strips away images, ads, and layout from articles and presents them in an easy to consume way.
You have to try out this fantastic bookmarking alternative to really see what all the buzz is about. You can pick up Read it Later from the Firefox Add-ons website.
