Instachrome: Instapaper Comes to Chrome

Instachrome is a nifty third-party extension that adds support for Instapaper — a service that allows you to save web pages to read later —  to Chrome.

Install the extension, connect it to your Instapaper account and you’re good to go (if you don’t have an Instapaper account, you can get one for free). Instachrome is accessed via a toolbar button, which brings up the menu that you can see in the top right in the screenshot above. It lets you save the current page, check out your unread, starred or archived Instapaper items, get the text view of the current page, and edit Instachrome’s options. You can also define a keyboard shortcut to quickly save the current page. That’s all there is to it, and for quickly working with your Instapaper account from Chrome, it’s perfect.

(If you use Read It Later instead of Instapaper, check out Postponer, a pair of Chrome extensions that adds similar functionality to that service.)
