Firefox has an add-on called Read It Later which is very handy for marking an article/web page to read later. I use for to mark whatever looks interesting which I don't have time for right now. It's extremely compact, one button w/expander, so it doesn't take up much space and is simple to use.

Is it possible to include this as a part of the site? Maybe as a profile preference. Would anyone be interested?

Isn't it great to find new functionality through a firefox add-on?

Since you now have the functionality, I don't really see a need to build it into the site, though... Having said that, we are definitely going to have a tagging/thumbs-up/bookmarking ability on the site that I think can serve this function quite well.

I have been waiting for a thumbs-up or like button! Bookmarking and/or tagging is a great idea, too.

And on this site you can always "mark as unread". Then it pops up as new again.
