We live in a day and age of information overload. There are so many sites I like to check, so many articles I want to read, but I don't have the time (this annoying thing called work keeps getting in the way!). Instapaper released a new bookmarklet which saves articles you want to read for later in an easy, stripped down format -- except that, if you're like me, your list of "things to read" suffers from constant inflation.
Fortunately, there now is Instapaper Placebo which works the same way -- except it doesn't.
However it doesn't work in the way I want the Instapaper bookmarklet to. So I've made my own. [...] You put it in your bookmarks. When you find an article or web page you want to read later, you click it. And it saves it for later.
There's one difference. Mine doesn't save the page, it just pretends to. And that's good enough.
