Bookmarks for webcomics, blogs, and other websites of a serial nature

I sometimes like to read webcomics or blogs from the first post. I could use history or bookmarks each time, but any other way to have a simple set-up so I don't lose my place?

How about using the "Read it later" Firefox plugin that allows you to add links.. It's a way of keeping a list of things that you don't have time for right away, but aren't really "multiple visit" type sites that you would put in your bookmarks.

I just acquired the plugin this weekend and am finding it mostly useful.

You could add a subscription to something like Google Reader... Sadly, only the latest 10 posts will be automatically marked unread (I don't understand this "feature," but whatever); to remedy, just star the latest post you've read?

I use the bookmarks toolbar - delete the old & drag/drop a new one to update.

I fail to see why you won't use bookmarks - this is why they exist.

If you want to avoid clutter, make a folder on your bookmarks toolbar for things that are in progress/want to come back to. And then do what torquemaniac suggested.

I also have this desire. The reason bookmarks don't work well for me is because I have to manually change them each time I've read some more of the blog, and I'm lazy/forgetful. If there were some sort of a crazy auto-updating bookmark plugin which would change itself to reflect the last page on a domain (say) where I've been -- that would solve my problem. And I imagine Busoni's, as well.

Google Notebook is good for noting things that you don't necessarily want in your bookmarks bar but that you'd like easily accessible in your browser.

Firefox Scrapbook would work for that. You could capture each page and title the captures sequentially or as you wish.
