Developer's Description

Opens unread links in your Pocket account in a new tab.
This little extension simply checks your Pocket account for unread links, and if there are any, opens them in new tabs. You can choose whether Pickpocket will open a new window for these tabs or just open them in the current window. When you close or leave a page opened by Pickpocket, the extension will ask you whether you want to archive the Pocket link. If you say yes, it'll tell Pocket to mark the link as read, which moves the link from your queue to your archive. Optionally, you can set Pickpocket to always archive (or not archive) closed links without asking. After installing Pickpocket, click its toolbar button and you will be prompted for your Pocket username and password. Enter them, and Pickpocket will immediately fetch any unread links in your Pocket queue and open them in new tabs. Thereafter, just clicking the toolbar button will open any unread links in your queue. A few settings are available in the Extensions tab of Safari's preferences window (look for the Pickpocket icon). You can change the option to open Pocket links in a new window, and you can choose what Pickpocket will do when you close or leave a Pocket link. You can also reenter your Pocket username or password.
