Pocket for Web gets a new simplified layout and features that power users will love

Popular social bookmarking service Pocket has given its Web-based service a makeover that brings it in-line with its mobile apps, and the revamped iOS 7 app, in particular.

The service, which recently passed 10 million registered users, now sports a more simplified layout to provide “a seamless Pocket experience for our users on whatever device and browser they choose.” The bottom navigation bar has been removed — its functionality is now part of the top bar — while the layout for individual articles is subtly more condensed and, in our opinion, better suited to reading.

Layout tweaks aren’t the only changes, Pocket has introduced keyboard controls (you can press ‘?’ to view them all), bulk editing options (press shift to select multiple articles) and — at last — the ability to manually save individual URLs.

All in all, these are good tweaks that improve the experience on the Web, particularly if you’re a power user.
