Developer Toolbox: Best Firefox Plugin Ever - Read It Later

  • Monday, November 03 2008

I'm always surfing the web and often times I'll see something that I don't have time to read so what to do?  Bookmark it?  Then I can't access it from home?  Add it to delicious? That quickly becomes a mess.

Recently I found a cool extension that was designed just for this - Read It Later.

This Firefox extension allows you to save pages of interest to read later. It eliminates cluttering of bookmarks with sites that are merely of a one-time interest. A commenter below (Chris) summed it up very well: “It’s a ’staging area’ for bookmarks.”

I've been using it for awhile with great success and recently they added the killer feature - integration with Google Reader!  So now I can easily mark something to read later from within Google Reader. Sweet!

This video is a nice introduction...
