So basically it's just a bookmark system?

And the difference is....?
Every once in a while, especially when I'm doing research, I find a page on the internet that has relative information that I want/need to read. Since I'm only interested in that one page/article, I don't want to permanently bookmark it. I prefer to only bookmarks websites that I'm interested in returning on a continual basis.

What I want is a temporary link that I can come back to later. If I want to save pages to read later, I have to bookmark them and that sometimes makes my browser clutter up with a bunch of random bookmarks that I only need temporarily. This new "read later" system of saving links is just what I need instead of my current method, where I save links to a research folder, then delete the folder when I'm done.
