Summary

Extremely lightweight unofficial addon for pinning things to Pinterest.

It's not injecting any javascript to the pages you browse normally (as official addon does to insert "Pin it" button to images and so on). When you press the addon button it just opens Pinterest in a new tab with the current page selected for picking images to pin.

User reviews
Was looking for a way to add things to pinterest when there was no pin option on page but was looking for an add-on w/minimal access to my data. I'm using Windows 10 and after adding this extension, no pin option appeared on my address bar as stated in another review. There is no 'pin' button. Instead, access to the add-on is under the Extensions button (it looks like a puzzle piece). On the page you want to save something from, click the extension button, then the Pinterest Light extension from the drop down menu. Go to the new window that opens, scroll down to see the 'save from URL' button. Copy/paste the url, choose what pic you want, choose board, done. Works great, appreciate this simple/light extension. Suggestion: in the description, provide info on where/how to access the extension. I read all the reviews and still had to hunt around to find where/how to access.
