Use "Save to Google" in Korea


Image: Google OS blog
Real quick here, if you're in Korea and want to try Google Save, or "Save to Google" (a currently still semi-official bookmarking and saving service - read more here), you may notice that although the Chrome extension works here, the actual page for managing your saved items (google.com/save) is giving you a 404 Not Found. I even tried a VPN from multiple locations including the US: didn't work.

As Redditor Tom_Sawyerer points out, you can access your Saved Items page from abroad at this URL:
https://www.google.com/save/me?gl=us
I tried it here in Korea, it works fine. Not sure how useful it is, but fun to play around with.

UPDATE: And this is now unnecessary, as all normal in-extension links are working. Disregard this post.
