Instapaper has been around on Macs, PCs and various mobile platforms for a few years now and I’d started to take it for granted, only using it to save the occasional long or important article that I knew I’d want to come back to at a later date.

There is also an awesome feature called Digest that will automatically put your reading list into categories, or you can manually tag the articles you save. It gives you a specialized newspaper, filled with articles you've picked earlier.
