Pocket

Pocket formerly known as Read It Later, is a great chrome extension which enables you to save pages that you don’t want to read at that moment in a cloud storage system, so that you can easily access that page later on from any device you want, and read it at a later moment.

With this extension the pages you select, automatically gets saved to your Pocket account.
