    I decided to only use Chtome bookmarks but keep 5 bookmarks at a time, I first read/adress them before I add new ones. It helps me a lot from cluttering them by bookmarking everything I encounter.

      Interesting theory, I have tried to use the top bar for important links. But the dropdown for the "one day i'll read this", do you move the read links to an archive folder?

        Nope, if I don't read the links within a week I remove them, because I'm probably not gonna read them anyway. There's just too many interesting stuff out there, and we kind of have this urgence to keep up with everything.

        Short answer: I delete them afterwards.

      My fear is that some day I'll want to refer to that old link, and despite my years of Google-fu training, I won't be able to find that resource again. So I'm a proponent of Pinboard from a data retention standpoint.

      I super admire your discipline with this approach, though. My Instapaper/Read Later lists are a mile long... :)
