toread is a web service that allows you to “bookmark” or email yourself web pages with the single click of browser bookmarklet.
Of course, Safari users can do this manually by pressing Command-I, which sends the contents of a web page to a new Mail.app message, filling in their own email address and then sending the email.
This is much quicker and cleaner.
After registration, you are offered a bookmarklet to drag and drop into the Bookmarks Bar of your browser (I use Safari):
One click on this bookmarklet and the page you are looking at is emailed to your inbox:
There’s nothing else to do.
This may appeal especially to people who use Mail.app as an Information mananger, allowing for the quick and painless archiving of web pages.
