How it Works:
1. Download and install the Stash extension using the link that we have provided at the end of this article.

3. Next, click on your profile icon at the top right of the page and click on ‘Settings’ to navigate to the ‘Settings’ page.
4. Scroll down and click on ‘Developer Settings’ in the left side panel.
5. Choose ‘Personal access tokens’ from the options panel, select ‘Tokens (classic)’, click on ‘Generate new token’ button and finally click on ‘Generate new token (classic)’.
6. A form will be displayed allowing you to choose which scopes you would like to be included in the token. Select ‘gist’ scope and then click the button ‘Generate token’ at the bottom of the screen. When asked for a password to confirm the request, specify the password that is associated with your account.
7. You now have a token generated for yourself. Copy this token and paste it in the Stash settings dialog box and click ‘Connect.
8. You can now start saving your favorite websites in Stash by browsing to the website, launching the Stash extension and clicking on the ‘+’ sign at the bottom left of the extension window. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard combination Shift + Alt + S.
9. You can test the functioning of Stash by installing the extension on some other Chromium based browser and connecting to Github using the same access token. You will find that all your links that you saved earlier will be readily available.
Since Stash extension is only available for Chromium based browsers, users of other browsers such as Firefox and Safari are at a disadvantage.
