Quick shout out to frequent online-readers. I'm looking for a brainstorming of anyone who has good methods of dealing with massive amounts of online reading material. Primarily reading online articles. I'm bombarded with insightful articles from self-help, productivity, mac, computer, news, gossip, odd, etc. I've got newsfire for checking multiple RSS feeds simultaneously, but once I start surfing, I hit that Command-Click combo to open a link in another window (say when I'm midstream through an article and don't want to link out before finishign it), after half hour or so of this, I've got 5-10 tabbed pages open, and my online reading has just blown out of control. Here's some methods I've tried or will try. Wondered if anyone else had other ideas.
- Saving page as file or simply saving link in a Read-Review folder on my desktop filing each page correspondingly in @READ_COMPLETED!

The problem with this is you end up adding a dozen articles in a few days, then your interests shift and you're left with a lot of "stale unnecessary" articles that could be delete-able, but are still interesting. I think downloading articles to folders should only be for exceptional articles, or this process for certain demands a thorough "review and delete" phase at least 1x/week.
- Starting a seperte browser window devoted to Reading-Only tabs. Measning each browser session would have 2 windows. One for email, research, blogs, forums, projects, and one for any reading I encountered.
- Finding an RSS program and flagging articles and then having a set read-review time.
