I do the same thing. Sometimes I even go so far as to copy them into an email and send them to myself with a subject along the lines of "Interesting, read these!" And you guessed it, never do. At some point I mark the mail as read/done using Inbox.

I do that too! But at work, I have an email bookmarked called "tabs!" (why not "Links!" I don't know) of all the internal webpages needed for doing a remote build, queuing a release, adding the release to and SDLC request, submitting a ticket for a new job, the internal test tool for the third party software we use, etc. I actually refer to that list three or four times a week!
Isn't it completely annoying how bookmarks work completely differently in a different browser. Seriously since a previous version of IE not sure which one. I have completely given up on bookmarks/favorites as a way of keeping track of sites.
I have a list of old favorites from like 8 years ago that gets imported in each new browser install. I never use any of them anymore. Sometimes when I go to one of them it is a dead link or dead site. geocities anyone.
I sometimes copy and paste into a OneNote notebook for reading later and weirdly enough I sometimes do read them at night when I need ot go to sleep.
Yep cannot use bookmarks at all.
To err is human to really mess up you need a computer
This of it as using a .txt file that you never lose. The best is when you finally get time to go back and dig through your old bookmarks and they don't work anymore because the website has been changed or is no longer around.
I caught myself doing this many years ago and decided to stop because it became a pain to move the links between work and home. I then started bookmarking them and then I ran into the previous problem again so I started compiling the bookmarks into simple webpages. That's what I do now. If I find a link that is interesting I copy and paste it into my little webpage and I keep them in a path that I backup to my flashdrive and that has simplified things for me considerably.
It turns out I have been doing this kind of thing for almost twenty years now. Imagine my surprise when I get on W10 machine for the first time and aim Edge at my little webpage and does not render correctly. This is a simple HTML file that has a table with two columns, a banner image, and a background image and it will not render at all.
I've come to the realization that some people use tabs like I use bookmarks.
I'd be just as bad (keeping lots of tabs opened), except that I've had browsers crash on me so often that it's not worth "keeping a tab opened" be the only way I can track back where I was and what I was doing.
Of course browsers nowadays try to detect crashes and offer to restore everything, but oftentimes they come back with a login prompt, which will log you in but might not bring you back to where you were anyway.
I keep them in a docx file "somewhere" and use a shortcut on my desktop op open docx when needed
- this way I have only 1 docx and it is never lost ... Sometimes I use Find in Word to find something back ...
