Pocket is one of the slickest bookmarking services for reading on the web, but its strength was never discovering new things to read. Starting today, it's hoping to fix that with a new Explore tab at the top of its homepage: type in what you're looking to read about, and off you go. Trending stories will line up alongside articles that other users have substantially saved. Related topics are also included, if you really have some hours to kill. The feature is in beta at the moment, but Explore doesn't require a login. You just... browse. Possibly forever.
Compared to Pocket's existing recommendation service, you now don't need to follow other users to get new stuff to read. For Explore, the team is synthesizing the recommendations from the entirety of its users. The bookmarking service has also tweaked its Chrome extension to add recommendations to similar articles and more trending stuff.
