Even if you love reading those longer articles on the Web, sometimes you have to pause to take care of other things--like going back to work from lunch. Because of reasons like this (and the large list of other interruptions you may encounter), a developer created an extension for Chrome that will let you mark the last line(s) you read. When you come back to the e-book, review, opinion article, or even research materials, you can pick up your reading from right where you left off.

Step 3: Double-click on the line where you want to leave a marker for later. The text will become highlighted in yellow.

When you're ready to get back to your reading:

(Optional) Step 4: Click the button for the extension to see the list of pages you have markers on.

(Optional) Step 5: Choose the page you want to continue reading and youRhere will automatically scroll you to where you placed the marker.

This extension is similar to Diigo, which was recently covered. However, youRhere is a bit more lightweight since it doesn't have built-in search engines and also doesn't require you to log in for use.

Consider youRhere as your new virtual bookmarker. While it's usually preferred to read an online article in its entirety, it may not always be possible, so give youRhere a try.
