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. – Servy Jul 8 '14 at 14:59

    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. – Martijn Pieters Jul 8 '14 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 – Andrew Barber Jul 8 '14 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:
