Amazon launches 'Send to Kindle' feature for Google Chrome

Amazon unveils 'Send To Kindle' Google Chrome extension to easily send web content to your e-reader

Google Chrome has a new extension available for download. This extension is produced and released by none other than Amazon and allows web content to be sent to any device that has the Kindle app installed. A one-click process, the extension allows blog posts, stories, and such directly to your favorite e-reader device.




Furthermore, by tapping into Amazon's Whispersync technology, users can easily start reading the content on one e-reader and seamlessly pick up where they left off on another device. The extension, "Send to Kindle for Google Chrome," allows users to send the entire webpage or just selected text to the device.


To get the extension for yourself, head on over to Amazon's Send To Kindle download page. Confirm the download on the Google Chrome Web store and sign in with your Amazon account. When you click the button, the content is formatted for the Kindle and then sent to your device a few minutes later. Amazon has said FireFox and Safari will get support "soon" but there was no mention of Internet Explorer.
