We try to keep the amount of interaction for using LaterLoop to a minimum, that's why we haven't implemented a pop-up box or something similar that asks for more details about the page. Since we're not trying to replace delicious, we didn't add any mildly advanced features.

But I'm very open to your suggestions: What should this look like? How/When would you like to add this description? If we can find a simple, unobtrusive way, we'll definitely consider it.

I did not mean that the silent, one-click, fully-automated feature ought to be compromised and require any sort of additional user input.

A small "Add comments" option below each saved link on the user's LaterLoop page... just like the "Add a comment" option below people's replies right here. It's unobtrusive and optional... that's what I meant.

Yep, the current system is so good and easy. But tagging or adding small comments to links on the laterloop site would definitely useful.

Currently I am bookmarking sites on my browser on different categories like " read later " ( for later reading ), " inspect later " ( i am writing a blog about internet, and when i come across an interesting site, I bookmark it to inspect later to write about it ), " comment later " ( for blog posts ) etc.

So what I expect is : I read my rss, open the interesting sites, add some of them to LL to read later, then when I finish browsing, add the necessary tags / comments to LL and close. Then, when I have time, open LL, search for " read later " tag, read them, then search for " inspect later " tag, choose one and inspect, write about it to blog etc. etc. etc.

With this, LL will my be definitely one of my favourites.
