Pocket Trick

laptop with code

Firefox’s Pocket browser plugin is great for capturing web content to read later. Also, check out this trick — If you happen to be checking out pages that you’re not sure about, and trying to protect your self with JavaScript disabled, sometimes those pages seem to not load. Pocket may help there too. It’s possible the site’s content has loaded enough for Pocket to grab the text, even if the page seems to be waiting for you.

It does this by looking at the HTML source code. You could read that as well, by right-clicking on the page, and selecting “view source“, but the nice trick about Pocket is that if formats all nice and pretty to read, so you don’t have to be your own HTML parser.
