Quiet Read lets you bookmark web pages temporarily

As you browse the web, you're (hopefully) going to run across things that interest you. Some stuff, like news stories, are read-once encounters; you look at it, read and understand, and go on your way. Other stuff you may want to revisit. If you're looking at a page that's really important to you, then you'll want to bookmark it. Use your browser, or tag it for del.icio.us, and you'll always be able to come back to it. And then there's the stuff in between.

Quiet Read lets you bookmark pages on a more temporary basis. When you've seen content you want to come back to, but you don't need to remember it forever, all you need to do is drag it to the menubar. The Quiet Read icon sits there unobtrusively waiting for you to drag and drop the link. When you've got time to revisit the site, just click the icon, and you'll get a list of the pages you've saved. Double-click the link, and you're back. It's easy to delete links as well, so you don't have to worry about having dozens—or hundreds—of "it seemed important at the time" entries, like with your regular bookmarks.

Quiet Read is a free download for your Mac. You'll need to be running OS X and update to Snow Leopard (10.6) to use it.
