I think it would be very useful if SO added a Watch List feature. More than once I have arrived at a question and wanted to reply but I had no time at that moment or needed time to prepare some code to post... then I needed to bookmark so I could go back later.
Is there a watch list feature already? If not, I think more than one person here would find it useful, and it would help in creating a community.

exactly what favorites are for? Just go to your favorites tab on your user profile to see the questions you have favorited (starred).
Also, you will get notifications for new answers on favorite questions as if you owned them.
So, click the giant star next to the question.

There is the
favorites option; but... a browser bookmark works too.

StackStalker for this very purpose. I would like to keep my favourites clean with actual favourites. After a while the favourites list just grows and grows...
I use it as well for 'short lived' interest in particular question.

I think if you list
incompleted drafts that will pretty much be what this guy is talking about.

In addition to favorites and bookmarks, each question has its own RSS feed that you can subscribe to. The RSS (question feed) link is at the bottom of each page (and maybe in your browser's address bar, depending on what browser you use).
