I Made a Chrome Extension to Stop My Browser Tabs Growing Indefinitely

I frequently found myself ending up with 50+ open tabs in my browser, full of stuff I want to read later. I wasn’t ready to send them to bookmarks, because I know what an endless abyss my bookmark list is. Once it goes there, it never comes back to me again :)

So, I made a chrome extension that allows me to mark and close tabs, that I want to read later. This extension remembers them and emails me every monday with a list of links I wanted to read. Neat, isn’t it.

If you want to use it for yourself, visit: https://closetab.email

As usual I’ve open sourced the code: https://github.com/joelewis/readmelater
