How do you manage links that you don't have time to read now? I often end up simply bookmarking them, meaning that my bookmarks list looks a complete mess.

Quiet Read is designed to bring some order and logic to storing links for later reading by adding them to your Status Bar. Quiet Read sits in your Menu Bar and allows you to drag links onto the Menu Bar item and store them. Once you've dragged your link to the Quiet Read icon, a number will indicate how many links remain unread. You can read a link simply by clicking on it.

The number doesn't decrease once you've read a link, which is a bit annoying. You have to right-click or CMD-click each link individually to remove them. There's also no way to preview links or tag them which would be useful because the longer your list grows, the less you remember what the links refer to (especially if they are reduced URLs). Note that Quiet Read only works with Snow Leopard.

As a way of keeping better track of your links for later reading, Quiet Read does the job although could definitely be better.
