Website of the week: instapaper.com

Proof that the best sites don't always have to whizz-bang, Web 2.0 affairs, instapaper.com is a decidedly lo-fi affair, but a cracking idea.

Proof that the best sites don't always have to whizz-bang, Web 2.0 affairs, instapaper.com is a decidedly lo-fi affair, but a cracking idea.

Sometimes it feels like I'm drowning in a giant RSS soup. It's all good and well having the world's information at my fingertips, but will I have time to read it all? And where the hell did I see that article about the art of Fly-Fishing? And was it by JR Hartley?

Instapaper.com offers a wonderfully simple solution – it's a online repository for any stuff you don't really want to subscribe to or bookmark, but you do want to revisit at a later stage.

Simply add the "Read Later" button to your toolbar and it'll transport the link you're on to a (very vanilla) homepage for you to read at your leisure.

It's refreshingly gimmick-free, although perhaps a little bit of styling wouldn't go amiss – perhaps to mimic a newspaper front page?
