it’s totally awesome.
Anyone who’s heard me speak in the last couple of years knows that I am addicted to del.icio.us as an off-site storage space for my bookmarks, and as a knowledge community. And I’m also recently become a regular Google Reader user (making the shift from Sage to a web-based feed reader) because of how it turns sharing and emailing links into a 1-click process for me. And lots of stuff goes straight from my reader into my del.icio.us.
But there’s all that limbo stuff — I might want to save it forever, but I’ll probably want to read it once and discard it. I’ve been handling that stuff using my browser’s bookmark feature, but that’s clunky because removing stuff from there is kind of clunky.
Enter the Read It Later extension. Install it, right click on any page (or use the browser buttons) and it gets saved to a reading list for later. If I like it, I can del.icio.us it from there. If I’m done, I just right click again and it’s gone. Awesome.
