I read a lot of other feeds out there. I at least skim all of the entries. I'm able to because the feed reader stores state and doesn't lose it between restarts. Many posts link to either other people's blog entries or web pages in general. I click the link and a new tab opens in my browser and remains there until I read it. For whatever reason, I rarely read it directly but queue it up for later instead. This becomes problematic when the browser crashes or I'm forced to restart the browser and it's been so long since I opened up the tabs that I don't care about losing them. Except that I do. I need a system to queue up tabs like this. I need a bookmarklet that forwards the page to a service that re-publishes the page to RSS and places it in a feed that I subscribe to so that I eventually will read it. Because then I'll be sure to revisit the topic as I make my way through unread items in my reader. The reader (NetNewsWire lite) is able to display HTML so maybe I can get away with escaping the entire page's content and serving that up in RSS.

I don't know if this helps, but Firefox has some plugins built for saving tabs when your browser crashes. I used to use one a while back. When the browser crashed and you reopened, it would prompt you to restore the previous tabs (sorta like MS Word recovery.) It rocked.
