Other Non-Fiction What's up with the "Send to Kindle" browser addon?

Awhile back, I used to use the Chrome and Firefox (Mozilla) browser addon "Send to Kindle" where you could send web page content to your Kindle for later reading. I found this useful for articles I came across when I was busy at work, I could send them to my Fire and read them in bed. Lately, I've been getting errors when I try to use them and the extensions no longer seem to be available. Anyone know what happened?
