Save questions to visit later, but not exactly 'favourite' them

One frequent position I find myself in is reading a question I'm interested in, not knowing the answer, and wanting to come back and read the responses later. Usually to do this, I favorite the particular question. Once I read the answer, I go in and un-favorite. This is honestly the ideal form of functionality and at the beginning of Stack Overflow, I had no issue with it.

But as my real favorite list grows, it's cumbersome to use. I realize that I can sort by most recent, but for those questions that don't get answered for days/weeks/months it makes it difficult to go back and un-favorite them.

Am I the only one who would enjoy this feature?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Is that your question? or are you asking for some new feature? – Sachin Shanbhag Feb 28 '11 at 14:20
Asking for the new feature mainly, curious if other people have a similar desire. – Chuck Callebs Feb 28 '11 at 14:36
This is a duplicate of most of the posts in the related list, I just picked one – Michael Mrozek Feb 28 '11 at 15:35
Ah, I'm sorry. Nothing popped up when I first added it. I've flagged it for moderator deletion though. – Chuck Callebs Feb 28 '11 at 15:53

What do you think would happen to your "saved for later" list if this were to be implemented?

I suggest you try to organize your favorites better

Perhaps I'm a luddite but I'm not sure how to "organize" my favorites at all. – Chuck Callebs Feb 28 '11 at 14:38

You don't have to use SO favorite system.

I use Favorites toolbar in Chrome, which can't contain too many entries... well, since it's a toolbar and doesn't have much space anyway.

Also, you can't forget about it if it's right in front of your eyes.

I'll check this out for the time being. I realize I don't have to use SO for this feature, but streamlining this process on the site would be a major boon. – Chuck Callebs Feb 28 '11 at 14:39
