    I’ve read through this twice now and don’t quite understand its use. Why is this different from simply bookmarking the sites in a folder for things to read later. I have a folder I mark “Reading List” and go through the reading list at my leisure and delete bookmarks as I read them. Someone really needed an extension for that?

      @Josh Consider this situation, you are at office and come across some links which you cannot read, you add it to RIL and then read it on your way home on your mobile phone or when you get back home or for that matter from any PC.

      The basic use of this goes beyond bookmarking, it is basically a easy way to access content you can’t read currently and add it to a centralized location so that you can then read it from anywhere.
