It’s extremely simple to use: You install the extension, and a new button will show up in your Chrome toolbar. Click it while visiting a webpage, and it will be saved in Google’s cloud — to find your saved web page, go to https://www.google.com/drive/

But the extension will make it easy for you to save now and then view them later.
