There is one feature I would love to see included, and that was a bookmark-feature. Something similar to the favourite-feature; but without the counting and without the implication that you found the question particular useful.

I have been using the favorite-feature to mark questions to revisit, but as I also use it to mark questions I found particularely useful (it's intended use?), things become a bit chaotic. So it would be very useful with a seperate bookmark-function, just for questions you for some reason would like to revisit later.

Another great feature would be a follow-feature, that tracked changes to a question - like new answers and new comments. It would be very useful when one encounter a great question with as-of-yet no answers.

    People can and do favorite questions for all sorts of reasons, certainly not just because they think it's a good question. Favoriting already does exactly what you want, just use it. It even indicates whether the question has been changed since you last visited it.

    Your browser has that bookmark feature already. I regularly use starring to track a post I want to keep an eye on, to revisit them later. No 'like' is implied. Commented Jul 8, 2014 at 15:00

    I wonder if it might be useful to do a minor UI change, and rename "Favorite" to "Watching" or "Bookmark", so people don't think it implies that the person 'likes' the post, as in this declined proposal Commented Jul 8, 2014 at 15:58

If you want to bookmark a question without the system thinking you like it, just add it as a browser bookmark or you could use the RSS feed for the question, in the bottom right hand corner:
